Schlüter®-LIPROTEC-LLPM /-LLP /-LLPE | Schlüter-Systems


Application and function

Schlüter-LIPROTEC-LLPM/-LLP/-LLPE are LED modules made from a flexible, encapsulated LED strip with homogeneous light distribution and an attachment profile made of aluminium or brushed stainless steel. The LED modules are available either with a fixed white-light colour temperature of 3000 K or 4900 K, or with a RGB+W colour range. The latter makes it possible to choose from more than 16 million hues and colour temperatures from 2500 K – 6500 K.

The support profiles make it possible to install the modules in a wide range of locations, with an installation height from 11 mm. Installation in walls, ceilings and shower areas is possible. In domestic indoor areas subject to light foot traffic, the Schlüter- LIPROTEC-LLPM LED modules in combination with white LED strips can be installed in the floor area. For use in surrounding areas of a pool, the Schlüter-LIPROTEC-LLPM LED module made of V4A stainless steel has to be used.

The LED modules are available as plug-andplay versions in different lengths. The LED strips can be shortened at the marked cutting points (WW / NW at distances of 25 mm, RGB+W at distances of 62.5 mm) and sealed in compliance with IP specifications by means of the included end cap sets. Depending on the light characteristics, the LED modules can be connected within a system, using cable connections and a splitter. Power supplies and the Bluetooth controller required for the RGB+W system are also designed as plug & play for ease of installation. Accessories such as profile end caps, cable connectors and hollow wall boxes that can be waterproofed are available.

The LIPROTEC module using the Schlüter-DECO- SG profile made of anodised aluminium or brushed stainless steel (V4A) with a trapezoid-perforated anchoring leg makes it possible to create a line of light with the RGB+W colours as accent lighting. For areas surrounding a pool, the LIPROTEC-LLPM LED modules with a V4A stainless steel profile is needed.
The LED module with white light is available with an installation depth of 11 mm, and thus can be installed flush with tiles, even on floor areas. On the RGB+W version for walls and ceilings, the LED strip protrudes approx. 3 mm from the profile. (Also see product sheet 2.16 Schlüter-DECO- SG).

Suitable application areas:

  • Showers
  • Walls
  • Ceilings
  • Floors in bare-foot and low traffic areas e.g. domestic bathrooms.
  • Pool surrounds, not in underwater areas

The profile made of anodised aluminium has an installation depth of 17 mm and can be installed flush with the surface (see 15.5 Schlüter-LIPROTEC-LL product sheet). This makes linear accent lighting in the RGB+W colour range possible. For easy installation, a KERDI-BOARD-K mounting module is available. It is equipped with pre-milled grooves for fitting the profile or the LIPROTEC-ZKK cable ducts.

Suitable application areas:

  • Showers
  • Walls
  • Ceilings

This LIPROTEC module can be installed in external or internal corners of rooms, as accent lighting. In shower areas, it should be installed vertically only. The Schlüter-LIPROTEC-LLE attachment profile consists of anodised or colour-coated aluminium (see product data sheet 15.7 Schlüter- LIPROTEC-LLE).

Suitable application areas:

  • Showers
  • Internal corners
  • External corners



  1. For information on installing the supply cable, the power supply and the controller, refer to the installation manual. (QR code for web download, see below).
  2. Before the modules are installed, their functionality has to be checked.
  3. In advance, the supply cable has to be positioned as appropriate for the cable opening in the profile.
  4. The LED strip has to be removed from the profile before the profile is installed. During installation of the profile, the connection joint of the cable has to be routed through the opening in the profile from the rear.
  5. If used in a wet zone (area with direct contact to water), the IP-protected LED strip has to be shortened at an angle of 45° at the marked positions. The Schlüter-PROCUT handheld snip tool is suitable. Make sure that the LED strip has been separated from the power supply before working on it. The cut edges of the LED strip have to be waterproofed with the supplied silicone sealing caps and special glue. First, apply an adequate amount of glue to the bonding surfaces of the silicone sealing cap. Then, insert the silicone sealing cap into the LED strip and press it in position for approx. 30 seconds. Check whether the end cap is properly connected to the LED strip. Remove excess glue with a cloth. After a curing period of approx. 30 minutes, the silicone end cap is firmly glued in place. The LED strip has been sealed and can now be used.
  6. After the profiles have been installed, the LED strip is connected to the supply cable by means of the plug- &-play connection and is carefully pressed into the profile. For more information on installation, refer to the supplied assembly manual.

Installation in wet zones
The modules can be installed in wet environments (e.g. showers) by using the Schlüter-LIPROTEC-PZH hollow wall box with attached waterproofing collar. It creates a hollow space for connecting, to reversibly install the plug-and-play LED modules. To insert the hollow wall box, a cutout with a size of 40 x 120 mm and a depth of min. 20 mm has to be made in the wall. The connection cable has to be routed through to the profiles opening. Make sure that the heat shrink tube on the connection cable ends up in the area with the sealing collar. The cable connection is fastened crosswise with two cable ties (included) and thus sealed. Any excess of the cable ties can be shortened. The hollow wall box is placed in the cutout produced and the sealing collar is sealed on the bonded waterproofing with Schlüter-KERDI-COLL-L. The self-adhesive KERDI collar has to be placed in such a way that the hollow wall box is sealed on all sides. Make an opening only where the cable opening of the attachment profile will be positioned.


Schlüter-LIPROTEC modules are available in the following material versions:

Profiles (see table):

  • AE = anodised aluminium
  • EB = brushed stainless steel V4A Material no. 1.4404 = AISI 316L

Fluorinated, platinum-cured silicone
Shore hardness: 60 IP
Rating: IP67

Material properties and areas of application
In special cases, the suitability of the LIPROTEC module must be verified, based on the anticipated chemical or mechanical stresses. The information provided below is intended as a general guideline.

Anodised aluminium: The aluminium features an anodised finish that retains a uniform appearance during normal use. Aluminum is sensitive to alkaline media. Cementitious materials, in conjunction with moisture, become alkaline. Depending on the concentration and duration of exposure, this may result in corrosion (aluminium hydroxide formation).

For this reason, remove adhesive and grout material immediately from all visible areas and do not cover freshly installed coverings with a protective film. The profile has to be solidly embedded in the tile adhesive to prevent water from accumulating in small cavities.

Stainless steel can withstand high mechanical stress and is highly resistant against chemicals. Even stainless steel of quality 1.4404 is not resistant to all chemical stresses. Substances such as hydrochloric or hydrofluoric acid or certain chloride and brine concentrations may cause damage. Special anticipated stresses should therefore always be verified in advance.

Uncut LED modules have IP67 protection. Shortened LED modules can reach compliance with IP67 if they are correctly sealed with the supplied end caps.

The fluorinated LED strips made of platinum- cured silicone are dirt-repellent and have a Shore hardness of 60.



Schlüter-LIPROTEC modules do not need special maintenance or care. Do not use abrasive cleaning agents on the sensitive surfaces. Damaged anodised surfaces can be restored with paint. All cleaning agents must be free of hydrochloric and hydrofluoric acid, as well as naphtha (ingredient of silicone removers).
