Schlüter®-BARA-ESOT | Function | Schlüter-Systems


Application and Function

Schlüter®-BARA-ESOT is an angular support profile for bonding skirting tiles to non-load-bearing substrates. These substrates include zinc-flashing or bituminous waterproofing layers which are used at wall/ floor transitions on balconies and terraces. A foam insulation strip, cut in the same width as the skirting tile, is placed between the vertical leg of the profile and the wall.

The trapezoid-perforated anchoring leg of Schlüter®-BARA-ESOT is embedded in the tile adhesive and covered by the floor tile. The special perforation of the vertical leg positions Schlüter®-BARA-ESOT approximately 1 mm from the insulating strip. First, dry-set mortar is applied to the skirting tile. The tile is then set against the vertical leg of the profile. The dry-set mortar penetrated the perforations of the skirting support and thus locked into the special structure of the profile.

A joint of approximately 5 mm should be left between the skirting and the floor tile. The joint is then filled completely with grout. Finally, a flexible joint on top of the base tile is constructed using an appropriate sealing compound.
