Schlüter®-DILEX-HKS/-EHK | Installation | Schlüter-Systems



  1. Select Schlüter®-DILEX-HKS or Schlüter®- DILEX-EHK according to the tile thickness. 
  2. Apply tile adhesive to the area where the profile is to be installed, using a notched trowel. 
  3. Press the trapezoid perforated anchoring legs of Schlüter®-DILEX-HKS or Schlüter®-DILEX-EHK securely into the adhesive and align. 
  4. Place additional adhesive over the trapezoid perforated anchoring leg to ensure full coverage. Trowel tile adhesive against the vertical anchoring leg at an angle. 
  5. Profile joints and internal and external corners are covered with the appropriate spe- cial pieces and adhered using a permanently elastic, waterproof adhesive. Prior to the application, any substances which may inhibit bonding, such as grease, etc have to be removed. The special pieces should overlap the profiles by at least 10 mm. 
  6. The tiles adjoining the profile must be solidly embedded into the adhesive bed. 
  7. A joint of approximately 2 mm should be left between the tile and the profile. Fill the joint completely with grout.
