Advantages of the Schlüter®-BEKOTEC system

  • Warranty:
    Schlüter-Systems offer a five-year warranty for the life of the covering 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.
  • Curl-resistant construction:
    The cover assembly of the Schlüter®- BEKOTEC system is free of inherent stresses. Consequently, curling is virtually impossible to occur in the area. This is especially applicable in the presence of temperature fluctuations, for example with heated screeds.
  • Joint-free screed:
    The regular patterns of the Schlüter®- BEKOTEC 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 tiles or stone covering, since it is not necessary to continue construction joints from the screed into the surface covering. The applicable regulations for the dimensions of the covering pattern 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 or artificial stone can be directly installed on top of the Schlüter®-DITRA 25 membrane. Ceramic thermal comfort floors are ready for heating only 7 days after the completion of the cover assembly.
  • Material savings:
    Just 40 kg/m² ≙ 20 l /m² of screed are required with a screed cover of 8 mm.
  • Fast-reacting heated floor assembly:
    Compared to conventional heated screeds, cover assemblies installed with a Schlüter®-BEKOTEC system react much faster to temperature changes, since the volume to be heated or cooled is much smaller. Consequently, the heated floor system is particularly suitable for operation at low temperatures.
