Schlüter®-DESIGNBASE-CQ is mounted on the wall as follows, using the supplied spacers and screw set.

  1. Place the spacers on the floor–in front of the wall - and position the support profile.
  2. If using the sealing lip Schlüter®-DESIGNBASE-CQ/Z in the floor area, which is available as an accessory, place the supplied spacers on top of the previously positioned spacers. You can also use the sealing lip as a wall finishing edge in the upper profile area (see Figure for item 6).
  3. Transfer the markings of the prepunched rectangular holes to the wall, and then drill holes with a depth of 40 mm for the enclosed wall anchors, using a drill bit (Ø 6 mm). Note: As an option, the positioned support profile can also be attached via the guide groove with drywall screws (not included). However, no subsequent correction of the profile height is possible after that.
  4. The skirting profile can be supplemented with a shadow joint angle profile (not included in the scope of supply) - see drawing of shadow joint angle profile Schlüter®-DESIGNBASE-CQ/ SG. It is placed in the designated area of the support profile. It can also be installed in the wall area with the installation adhesive Schlüter®-KERDI-FIX. Immediately remove any excess adhesive from the profile with a suitable detergent.
  5. If using the sealing lip Schlüter®-DESIGNBASE-CQ/Z, integrate it into the design profile prior to placing the design profile on the support profile. If the sealing lip is installed in a corner, cut it a little longer in the area of the abutting profiles. Then make an approx. 10 mm cut into the sealing lip with a utility knife on each side and cut the lower part of the sealing lip at an angle of 45°.
  6. Now remove the spacers and evenly press the design profile into the support profile. 
  7. If using corner pieces, insert them laterally into the profile.
