Schlüter®-BARA-RKL/-RKLT

Application and Function

Schlüter®-BARA-RKL/-RKLT are angular finishing profiles with an integrated drip lip for large format pavers, which are either installed loosely over gravel/ crushed stone or on stilted constructions such as Schlüter®- TROBA-STELZ. The profiles create a neat edge appearance and protect the exposed edges from shifting gravel or stone.

The vertical finishing leg extends upward, visually covering the exposed surface assembly edge.

Drainage holes, spaced at approximately 7.5 cm, are incorporated in the lower part of the anchoring leg to ensure correct drainage of any collecting seepage water.

The protruding drip lip allows for drainage of the surface water. The lower edge of Schlüter®-BARA-RKLT’s horizontal anchoring leg contains a Tshaped profile chamber for the attachment of the Schlüter®-BARIN gutter system.

Elongated slots at the back of Schlüter®- BARIN allow for slope adjustment during gutter installation.

Installation

  1. DIN waterproofing:
    The profiles must be attached to the substrate prior to installing the waterproofing assembly, for example with a cold bitumen adhesive. The waterproofing membrane can then be adhered up to the drainage openings to prevent water seepage. Seal the abutting seams of the profiles with the self-adhesive anchoring fleece Schlüter®-BARA-HV. Note: The applicable standard requires a width of 150 mm for integrating materials such as zinc or copper sheets. It is therefore recommended to discuss this issue with the customer before installing Schlüter®-BARARKL, which has a width of 110 mm.
  2. Waterproofing with Schlüter®-KERDI:
    The profiles must be attached to the substrate with a suitable adhesive prior to installing the waterproofing assembly, for example with Schlüter®- KERDI-COLL. Seal the abutting seams of the profiles with the self-adhesive anchoring fleece Schlüter®-BARA-HV (see Fig 1). Next, Schlüter®- BARA-HV is fully embedded on the anchoring legs of the profiles (see Fig. 2). Remove all substances (such as lubricants etc.) that may weaken the bond from the adhesive areas prior to applying the anchoring fleece. Schlüter®-KERDI can then be adhered up to the drainage openings to prevent water seepage. Adhere Schlüter®- KERDI to the anchoring leg with the sealing adhesive Schlüter®-KERDI-COLL.
  3. If the waterproofing has already been installed, attach the profile to the waterproofing assembly with a suitable adhesive and adjust the profile to position. Ensure that the waterproofing layer is already connected to a drip lip or gutter system.
  4. a. If Schlüter®-BARA-RKL/-RKLT is used as a gravel edge profile, the gravel layer is spread over the drainage mat Schlüter®-TROBA or Schlüter®-TROBAPLUS and should abut the vertical profile leg just below the upper lip. The gravel or crushed stone must be contained to stabilize this edge area. The pavers are then laid loosely on top of the levelled gravel layer.
    b. In case of coverings supported by stilts such as Schlüter®-TROBA-STELZ, the exterior contact points are positioned on the anchoring legs of the profiles. In a next step, the pavers are installed over the casting mold rings.
  5. Profile ends should abut with a distance of approx. 5 mm, with the gap covered by clip-on connectors. Pre-formed parts are available for interior and exterior corners. 5
  6. Once the covering is completely installed, the Schlüter®-BARIN gutter system can be fastened to the Schlüter®- BARA-RKLT profile using the screws included. The slotted holes allow for slope adjustment, if required. Note: It must be assured that the drainage openings of the profiles are not fully closed during the installation.

Material

The profiles are made of chromated, colourcoated aluminum.

Material properties and areas of application

The coating of the aluminium profile is colourfast, weather and UV resistant. Visible surfaces should be protected against abrasion.

In special cases, the suitability of the profiles must be verified based on the anticipated chemical and mechanical stresses.


Schlüter®-BARA-RKL/-RKLT

Maintenance

The profiles require no special maintenance or care. The powder coated surface of the aluminium profile is colourfast. Damaged visible surfaces can be restored with paint.
