Schlüter®-TREP-S/-B | Installation | Schlüter-Systems



  1. Select Schlüter-TREP-SE / -S / -B according to the tile thickness.
  2. Align the covering material at the riser.
  3. Apply a suitable tile adhesive to the edge area above the step riser.
  4. Fill the hollow spaces on the underside of the profile with suitable tile adhesive. Note for steps 3 and 4: In case of thicker adhesive layers in the edge area, it may be necessary to add sand to the dry-setting thin bed adhesive in accordance with manufacturer instructions or to use a medium bed mortar.
  5. Embed Schlüter-TREP-SE / -S / -B fully into the adhesive bed and align the profile in such a way that the front edge of the support profile is flush with the riser tile.
  6. Trowel additional setting material over the trapezoid perforated anchoring leg and the tread of the stair step to ensure full coverage.
  7. Solidly embed the horizontal tiles and align them flush with the top edge of the profile. Full coverage must be obtained between the tile and the profile’s anchoring leg.
  8. Leave a gap of approx. 2 mm between the tile and the profile.
  9. Completely fill the space between the tile and the profile with grout.
  10. The front edge cover profile Schlüter-TREP-TAP can only be used in conjunction with Schlüter-TREP-S and -B, which have aluminium support profiles. The profile is either inserted laterally through the designated groove or snapped into place from below. Attach the back of Schlüter-TREP-TAP to the riser (e.g. with Schlüter-KERDI-FIX).
