Schlüter®-BARA-RK | Installation | Schlüter-Systems



  1. At the edge area, Schlüter®-BARA-RK is positioned into a layer of mortar. Prefabricated corner pieces for inside and outside corners are available. Between the ends of two profiles, a space of approximately 5 mm is left and covered by clipping on a connector. 
  2. Balcony and terrace surfaces shall be filled with mortar to the height at which the mortar bed’s structural reinforcement (AKS lattice) is placed. In doing so, the reinforcing lattice must overlap the anchoring leg of the profile.
  3. To produce the load distribution layer, the screed mortar is applied at the appropriate height and slope using the upper edge of Schlüter®-BARA-RK as a screeding guide. If Schlüter®-DITRA 25 is to be installed as an uncoupling and bonded waterproof membrane, the screed is levelled 3 mm below the top of the profile and carefully compacted.
  4. Please Note: Schlüter®-TROBA-PLUS must be laid as an area drainage layer between the waterproofing layer and the screed. The visual gap created between the waterproofing and the screed, due to the installation of the drainage layer, can be covered by attaching the drip lip. The drip lip cannot prevent the dripping water from coming into contact with the front edge or the wall area in all cases.
