Schlüter®-DILEX-EKE/-EF

Application and Function

Schlüter®-DILEX-EKE and Schlüter®- DILEX-EF are single-part corner profiles for interior wall corners. If the floor covering is not constructed as a floating screed, Schlüter®-DILEX-EKE and Schlüter®- DILEX-EF may also be used as flexible floor/ wall transitions.

The trapezoid perforated, lateral anchoring legs are firmly embedded in the adhesive below the tile covering. In the case of Schlüter®-DILEX-EKE, one of the anchoring legs forms a chamber for inserting cut tile edges. In the case of Schlüter®- DILEX-EF, the tiles abut the profile from both sides, leaving a uniform joint space. The tile surface can be either flush with the profile edge or up to approx. 2 mm lower, which allows for choosing a variety of tile thicknesses. Completely fill the joint between the profile and the tiles with grout (or partly with tile adhesive during installation).

The visible movement zone is only 5 mm wide. It must be verified for individual projects whether this 5 mm zone is sufficient for the expected movements.

Installation of Schlüter®-DILEX-EKE

  1. Select Schlüter-DILEX-EKE according to the tile thickness. The profile height “U” must be sufficient to enable insertion of the tile into the chamber (e.g. U 11 for a tile thickness of approx. 8–10 mm).
  2. Embed the trapezoid perforated anchoring legs, firmly press the profile into the adhesive and trowel mortar over the profile legs.
  3. Install the tiles on one side, leaving a joint of approx. 2 mm between the tiles and the profile. Insert the cut edge of the tile into the profile chamber on the other side, using a sufficient amount of adhesive to completely fill the space between the rear wall of the chamber and the tile.
  4. Completely fill the space between the profile and the tile with grout.


Installation of Schlüter®-DILEX-EF

  1. Select Schlüter-DILEX-EF according to the tile thickness to ensure that the tile surface is either flush with the profile edge or up to approx. 2 mm lower.
  2. Embed the trapezoid perforated anchoring legs, firmly press the profile into the adhesive and trowel mortar over the profile legs.
  3. Leave a gap of approx. 2 mm between the tiles and the profile.
  4. Completely fill the space between the profile and the tile with grout.

Schlüter®-DILEX-EKE/-EF

Material

Schlüter®-DILEX-EKE and Schlüter®-DILEXEF consist of recycled rigid PVC anchoring legs and a movement zone made of soft CPE.

Material properties and areas of application:
Schlüter®-DILEX-EKE and Schlüter®- DILEX-EF are used as corner movement profiles for floor/wall transitions and interior wall corners. The material is resistant to most chemicals encountered in tiled environments. The soft CPE movement zone is UV resistant and can withstand exposure to weather. It is also resistant to fungi and bacteria and is, therefore, suitable for use around food preparation and storage areas.

The CPE material is resistant to a number of acids, alkalis, oils, greases and solvents. In special cases, the suitability of a proposed type of profile must be verified based on the anticipated chemical, mechanical and/or other stresses.

Maintenance

Schlüter®-DILEX-EKE and Schlüter®- DILEX-EF are resistant to fungi and bacteria, and require no special maintenance. Clean along with the tiled surface using common household cleaning agents.
