Schlüter®-LIPROTEC-LLE | Installation | Schlüter-Systems



Please observe the corresponding Schlüter- LIPROTEC installation instructions for installing the lights and for planning and positioning the cables.

Schlüter-LIPROTEC-LLE can be directly integrated into the tile assembly or retrofitted in wall corners with the installation clips Schlüter-LIPROTEC-LLE-MK.

Direct installation (profile integration into tile assembly)

  1. Schlüter-LIPROTEC-LLE is suitable for tile thicknesses ≥ 8 mm.
  2. Apply tile adhesive to the area where the profile is to be installed, using a notched trowel.
    Note: If the profile is to be installed to finish an external edge, the wall corner must be chamfered at a sufficiently large 45° angle.
  3. Completely fill the backside of the profile with tile adhesive.
  4. Now press Schlüter-LIPROTEC-LLE into the adhesive bed.
  5. Leave a joint of approx. 1.5 mm between the tile and the profile. Completely fill the joint with grout.
  6. Use suitable materials and tools for sensitive surfaces to avoid scratches or other damage. All mortar or tile adhesive residue must be removed immediately.
  7. Use mitre cuts for corner formations.

Subsequent installation (with installation clips Schlüter-LIPROTEC-LLE-MK)

  1. Trace the elongated openings in the installation clip Schlüter-LIPROTEC-LLE-MK on the wall. Use a drill (diameter 5 mm) to prepare 35 mm holes for the supplied wall anchors. Note: We recommend an installation spacing ≤ 50 cm for the installation clips. Use at least 2 installation clips for shorter profile pieces.
  2. Then press Schlüter-LIPROTEC-LLE evenly into the installation clips.
    Note: For optimal profile attachment, the installation clips can be re-adjusted with pliers.
  3. For corner formations, cut the profiles to size in such a way that the inner profile surfaces are flush. Trim the diffuser lenses by approx. 9 mm on each side with a suitable tool before snapping in the corner.
    Note: A small amount of light may be visible at the corners once installed. You can cover the area with a suitable material to conceal this light.
  4. The cable is installed over the end faces of the profile in places where a corner formation is planned.
