Barrier-free shower enjoyment

Innovations made by Schlüter-Systems

High access barriers to shower areas are yesterday's designs–modern showers are integrated into bathrooms without access barriers. At BAU 2011, Schlüter-Systems will show how to create comfortable, easily installable bathroom landscapes with innovative system solutions, ceramic tiles or natural stone, and all matching details. The company from Iserlohn, Germany, will introduce its new linear drainage system with vertical drain, Schlüter®-KERDI-LINE -V, to fairgoers in Munich. 

Last year, Schlüter-Systems presented a complete assortment for floor-level showers under the name Schlüter®-KERDI-SHOWER, which featured a central, single-point, and linear drainage with horizontal connection. The linear drainage Schlüter®-KERDI-LINE-V with vertical connection now completes the comprehensive program. The system meets all building requirements for floor-level showers with linear drainage. 

The new offer consists of three different aspects:

  • Linear drainage and screen/frame combinations for drainage installations along walls and in the center of shower assemblies: Schlüter®-KERDI-LINE,
  • Sloped trays with optional, matching leveling boards: Schlüter®-KERDI-SHOWER-L
  • Tapered profiles and wall connection profiles: Schlüter®-SHOWERPROFILE.  

The deep-drawn Schlüter®-KERDI-LINE channel bodies are made of solid stainless steel with a thickness of 1.5 mm that has no welding seams. They are available in eight lengths from 50 to 120 cm and in the versions KERDI-LINE-H and KERDI-LINE-V. Schlüter®-KERDI-LINE-H with horizontal drain for installation on the floor level is a suitable solution for most construction projects with an assembly height of 97 mm. Schlüter®-KERDI-LINE-V with vertical drain for installation through the floor level is ideal for renovation projects and has an assembly height of just 24 mm. 

Both the horizontal or vertical linear drainage versions are designed for variable installation in wall and floor areas. They can even be used in upright lateral walls. The supplied prefabricated corner pieces provide waterproofing in critical corner areas. A flange with a laminated fleece fabric surface allows for a secure, waterproof connection of the drainage channels to the KERDI waterproofing assembly. The channels are embedded in a sturdy channel support made of polystyrene, which makes them easy to install. Schlüter®-KERDI-LINE-H has a drainage capacity of 0.6 l/sec, while Schlüter®-KERDI-LINE-V reaches drainage capacities over 1.0 l/sec. 

Screen/frame sets for covering the drainage channel are available in eight lengths and come in three different designs:

  • Closed, stainless steel with lateral drainage slits,
  • Drainage screen with square perforations,
  • U-shaped pan for installation of covering material. 

The stainless steel frame for the designer covers in elegant QUADEC design allows for seamless height adjustment to tile thicknesses from 3 to 25 mm.  To make the installation as reliable and quick as possible, all varieties of the line drainage come with matching Schlüter®-KERDI-SHOWER sloped trays and leveling boards. These components ensure proper height adjustment and provide the necessary slope (2%) for the assembly. The sloped tray is coated with Schlüter®-KERDI. Together with the Schlüter®-KERDI waterproofing component, this meets the requirements of the German Certificate of National Technical Approval (abP) for waterproofing assemblies. The boards feature marked cutting grooves to cut them to size for round shower designs and smaller dimensions can easily be cut out with a utility knife. 

The designers at Schlüter-Systems paid special attention to the lateral transition areas of the shower. The innovative tapered profile Schlüter®-SHOWERPROFILE-S is made of a brushed stainless steel and offers installers an option for quickly and elegantly covering the lateral sloped sides of floor-level showers. The two-piece profile Schlüter®-SHOWERPROFILE-R of brushed stainless steel for wall connection in the back area of the shower rounds off the program.
