Benefits of the Schlüter®-BEKOTEC-DRAIN 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-DRAIN system is designed to reduce shearing tensions in the screed within the grid of the studded panel. No construction reinforcement is required.

Water seeping into the covering assembly drains through the openings of the studded panel to the sloped waterproofing layer or drainage layer, flowing through the assembly’s hollow chambers without creating any pressure.

Non buckling construction:
The cover assembly of the Schlüter®- BEKOTEC-DRAIN system is free of inherent stresses. Consequently, no buckling can occur in the area. This is especially applicable in the presence of temperature fluctuations that are typical for coverings in exterior areas.

Joint free screed:
The regular patterns of the Schlüter®- BEKOTEC-DRAIN system 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-DRAIN system is able to support weight, coverings of ceramic tile, natural stone or artificial stone can be directly installed on top of Schlüter®-DITRA-DRAIN.

Low construction height:
In comparison to conventional heated screeds according to DIN 18 560-2, the Schlüter®-BEKOTEC system saves up to 20 mm in construction height.

Material and weight savings:
Assuming a base area of 100 m2, reducing the screed thickness by 20 mm saves 2,0 m3 of screed, which is the equivalent of approx. 4 metric tons. This advantage is reflected in the static calculation.

Documented suitability for the defined purpose:
The trouble free functionality and suitability of the Schlüter®-BEKOTEC system has been documented in the test report of an accredited testing institute. In particular, the tests focused on the maximum traffic loads.
