Schlüter®-BARA-RKB | Schlüter-Systems


Application and Function

Schlüter®-BARA-RKB is an edging profile for exposed edges of surface coverings on balconies and terraces with finished sloped screeds.

The exterior leg of the profile is shaped to form a protruding drip lip.

The trapezoid perforated anchoring leg of the finishing profile is fully embedded in the coating. Schlüter®-BARA-RKB provides a neat finish of the covering, protects the edge of the coating with its 3 mm front leg, shields exposed screed edges, and forms a protruding drip lip.



  1. Apply a contact layer in the edge area where Schlüter®-BARA-RKB is to be installed.
  2. The trapezoid perforated anchoring leg of Schlüter®-BARA-RKB is pressed into the contact layer and aligned. If applicable, the profile has to be cleaned and degreased prior to installation.
  3. Completely cover the trapezoid perforated anchoring leg with bonding material. The finished surface coating should be flush with the upper edge of the profile.

Note: A crack bridging tape such as Schlüter®- KERDI-BAND may be integrated in the coating in the area of the profile. Please note that the drip-lip cannot always prevent the contact of the drainage water with the front edge and the wall area.



Schlüter®-BARA-RKB is made of chromated, powder coated aluminium.

Material properties and areas of application
The coating on the aluminium profile is colour stable, as well as UV and weather resistant. Visible surfaces should be protected against abrasion. In special cases, the suitability of Schlüter®- BARA-RKB must be verified based on the anticipated chemical and mechanical stresses.



Schlüter®-BARA-RKB requires no special maintenance. The aluminium profile’s powder coated surface is UV resistant and colour-stable. Damaged visible surfaces can be restored with paint.




* to complete the Art.-No., add the colour (e.g. RKB 3 PG).

GM - grey metallic, RAL 9006
PG - pastel grey, no RAL
