Benefits of the Schlüter®-BEKOTEC System

Schlüter-Systems offers a five year warranty for the life of the cover assembly, provided all installation instructions were observed and the covering is used as intended.

Crack free covering:
The Schlüter®-BEKOTEC system is designed to reduce shearing tensions in the screed within the grid of the studded panel. No construction reinforcement is required.

Non buckling construction:
The cover assembly of the Schlüter®- BEKOTEC system is free of inherent stresses. Consequently, buckling in the system is virtually impossible. This is especially applicable in the presence of temperature fluctuations; e.g. with heated screeds.

Joint free screed:
The regular patterns of the Schlüter®- BEKOTEC studded panel evenly reduce tensions in the screed, which allows for constructing the screed without movement joints.

Movement joints in the joint pattern of the tile or stone covering:
With the Schlüter®-BEKOTEC system, the design of movement joints can match the joint pattern of the tile or stone covering, since it is not necessary to continue construction joints from the screed into the surface covering. The applicable regulations for the placement and construction of movement joints in and around the tile field must be observed.

Short construction time:
As soon as the screed produced with the Schlüter®-BEKOTEC system is able to support weight, coverings of ceramic tile, natural stone or artificial stone can be directly installed on top of the Schlüter®- DITRA 25 membrane. Ceramic thermal comfort floors are ready for heating only seven days after the completion of the cover assembly.

Low construction height:
Compared to conventional heated screeds according to DIN 18 560-2, the Schlüter®-BEKOTEC system saves 37 mm in construction height.

Material savings:
Only 57 kg/m2 ≙ 28.5 l/m2 of screed are required with a screed cover of 8 mm. This advantage is reflected in the static calculation.

Fast reacting heated floor assembly:
Compared to conventional heated screeds, cover assemblies installed with a Schlüter®-BEKOTEC-THERM ceramic thermal comfort floor react much faster to temperature changes, since the volume to be heated or cooled is much lower. Consequently, the heated floor system is particularly suitable for operation at low temperatures.
