Schlüter®-DILEX-BT /-BTO /-BTS | Function | Schlüter-Systems


Application and Function

Schlüter®-DILEX-BT is a maintenance free structural movement profile made of aluminium. The profile is designed in such a way that the lateral anchoring legs can be either embedded in the tile adhesive layer beneath tile and natural stone coverings or integrated into the mortar bed for other covering materials, such as carpeting or VCT.

Therefore, the profile can move together with the respective covering assembly. The telescopic centre section can absorb movements of ± 5 mm. The lateral pivot joints allow for the absorption of three dimensional movement.

Schlüter®-DILEX-BT offers secure edge protection for surfaces exposed to foot traffic and light vehicular traffic and is, therefore, suited for use in warehouses, production facilities, shopping centres, airports, train stations and car parks or for coverings cleaned with machines. The profile variation Schlüter®-DILEX-BT/O can be used to create expansion joints at floor to wall transitions, and the profile Schlüter®-DILEX-BTS can be added after the completion of surface coverings.

The profiles may be used in walls and ceilings made from gypsum board panels and can also be integrated directly into the plaster or render.
