Schlüter®-BARA-RTP | Schlüter-Systems


Application and Function

Schlüter®-BARA-RTP is an edging profile that accommodates the Schlüter®-BARIN gutter system. The profile is subsequently installed at the exposed edges of existing floor coverings on balconies and terraces. Schlüter®-BARA-RTP is attached to the front of the exposed edges on balconies and terraces via bolts, 5 mm in diameter, that are placed at approximately 50 cm intervals.

A T-shaped channel has been provided at the lower end of the Schlüter®-BARA-RTP for attaching the Schlüter®-BARIN gutter using self-tapping screws. Slotted holes in the Schlüter®-BARIN gutter system allow the Schlüter®-BARA-RTP profile to be adjusted vertically.



  1. To fasten the Schlüter®-BARA-RTP edging profile, drill holes, 8 mm in diameter, into the front edge of the floor covering at approximately 50 cm intervals. To align with the holes provided in the profile, Schlüter®-BARA-RTP can be placed against the front edge and used as a drilling template.
  2. After inserting the anchors, the Schlüter®- BARA-RTP edging profile should be fastened with Schlüter®-BARA-RTPS 540 special bolts. To ensure solid contact of Schlüter®-BARA-RTP to the front edge of the covering assembly, it is advisable to fill the rear ribs of the edging profile with dry-set mortar first.
  3. Once Schlüter®-BARA-RTP has been mounted, the Schlüter®-BARIN gutter system can be attached at the required slope. To do this, fasten the vertically adjustable Schlüter®-BARA-RTP gutter-support profile to the Schlüter®-BARA-RTP edging profile. The Schlüter®-BARA-RTP features slotted holes for establishing the proper slope, if required.
  4. Note: Pre-fabricated corners and connectors are available for internal corners, external corners, and butt joints. The profile ends of Schlüter®-BARA-RTP are to be abutted, leaving an approx. 5 mm wide joint. The joint is covered with the snap-on connector.



Schlüter®-BARA-RTP is made of pre-treated (chromated), colour-coated aluminium.

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 Schlüter®- BARA-RTP must be verified based on the anticipated chemical, mechanical, and/or other stresses.



Schlüter®-BARA-RTP requires no special maintenance or care. The coated surface of the aluminium profile is colourfast and UV-resistant. Damaged visible surfaces can be repaired with paint.
