Application and Function

Schlüter®-BARA-RT is a T shaped connector profile for balcony and terrace coverings. It can be used in conjunction with loose gravel, stilted constructions, or in bonded assemblies.

In installations with self-supporting pavers on screed contact points or gravel/crushed stone beds, the trapezoid perforated anchoring leg of Schlüter®-BARA-RT is placed at the edge of the construction on top of the drainage membrane Schlüter®-TROBA or Schlüter®-TROBA-PLUS, where it is aligned vertically and horizontally. The vertical finishing leg provides a neat finishing edge for the complete assembly and allows for the drainage of water. The different profile heights from 9 to 65 mm accommodate a variety of edge formats. The profile can also be used in conjunction with tile coverings. In this case, the trapezoid perforated anchoring leg of the finishing profile Schlüter®-BARA-RT is fully embedded in the tile adhesive and integrated into the bonded waterproofing assembly.

Alternatively, the trapezoid perforated anchoring leg of Schlüter®-BARA-RT can be fully embedded in the screed, which allows for installing the mortar bed flush with the upper edge of the profile. Schlüter®-TROBA-PLUS must be installed as an area drainage membrane between the waterproofing layer and the screed to ensure that water cannot accumulate in the screed layer. If Schlüter®- DITRA 25 is to be installed, the screed must be 3 mm lower than the upper profile edge. The profile creates a neat edge finish and covers the edge of tiles as well as any exposed screed.
