Schlüter®-DILEX-KS/-KSA/-EKSB

Installation Schlüter®-DILEX-KS

Installation for tile and natural stone surfaces:

  1. Select Schlüter®-DILEX-KS according to the tile thickness.
  2. Apply tile adhesive to the area where profile is to be installed, using a notched trowel.
  3. Press the trapezoid perforated anchoring leg of Schlüter®-DILEX-KS firmly into the adhesive and align it. The profile must align directly with expansion and movement joints in the substrate below.
  4. Trowel tile adhesive over the trapezoid perforated anchoring leg to ensure full coverage. Trowel tile adhesive against the vertical anchoring legs at an angle.
  5. Firmly press the adjoining tiles into place and align them in such a way that the upper profile edge is flush with the tile (profile should not protrude over the surface of the covering; preferably, it should be approx. 1 mm below the top level of the covering). The tiles must be fully embedded in the area of the profile. Always adjoin the uncut tile edge to the profile.
  6. Leave a 2-mm joint to the profile, and completely fill the joint between the profile and the tile with mortar.
  7. When creating cross joints, trim the profiles to ensure that the trapezoidperforated anchoring legs do not overlap in installation. The tile inserts Schlüter®-DILEX-KS/-K are available in all colours for neat joint appearance.

 

Installation for coatings:

  1. Select Schlüter®-DILEX-KS according to the thickness of the covering.
  2. Apply a contact layer in the area where profile is to be installed.
  3. Press the trapezoid perforated anchoring leg of Schlüter®-DILEX-KS firmly into the adhesive and align it. The profiles may need to be cleaned and degreased prior to installation. The profile must align directly with expansion and movement joints in the substrate below.
  4. Trowel coating material over the trapezoid perforated anchoring leg. The finished surface coating should be flush with the upper edge of the profile.
    Note:
    The profile should not be higher than the coating surface but flush or up to approx. 1 mm lower.

 

Installation Schlüter®-DILEX-KSA

  4. Trowel tile adhesive over the trapezoid perforated anchoring leg to ensure full coverage. Trowel tile adhesive against the vertical anchoring legs at an angle.
  5. Firmly press the adjoining tiles into place and align them in such a way that the upper profile edge is flush with the tile (profile should not protrude over the surface of the covering; preferably, it should be approx. 1 mm below the top level of the covering).
