Application and Function

Schlüter®-TROBA-LEVEL is a combinable tile and paver support system that enables individual assembly heights from 3 mm to over 1 m. It is suitable for levelling any sloped assembly of up to 10%. Unbonded (or loose lay) installation is suitable for balconies, terraces, roof terraces and other accessible spaces. It enables access to pipelines and floor drains in the remaining hollow space. Please refer to the Technical Data table later in this document for information about combination options and further details.

Due to the open joints between the tiles and pavers, surface water can freely drain on to the substrate and, if fitted, into the drainage system beneath. Typically the tiles and pavers will be at least 20 mm thick. They must be self supporting. The load bearing, environmental and slip resistance properties of the tiles and pavers must be determined from the manufacturer or supplier to ensure they are suitable for use with the pedestal system and external applications.

The 10mm high stackable tile and paver supports Schlüter®-TROBA-LEVEL-PL 10 are made of a sound-insulating special synthetic material and can be installed on top of the substrate or, if present, directly over the waterproofing assembly. Up to 20 can be stacked together to create an assembly height of between 10 and 200mm. The integral 3 mm connectors enable a consistent joint appearance and are able to absorb movements in the covering.

The 30mm adapter blocks Schlüter®-TROBA-LEVEL-PLA 30 must be used between two Schlüter®-TROBA-LEVEL-PL 10 tile and paver supports. As up to 10 x Schlüter®-TROBA-LEVEL-PL 30 adapter blocks can be stacked together this means they can be used to create an assembly height of between 50 and 320mm.

Schlüter®-TROBA-LEVEL-AP 1 levelling platelets adjust the assembly height by 1mm. Up to 10 x Schlüter®-TROBA-LEVEL-AP 1 platelets can be stacked together, enabling the assembly height at the corner of each paver or tile to be adjusted by up to 10mm, thus accommodating minor variations in tile or paver thickness or substrate level.

Schlüter®-TROBA-LEVEL-PLV 60 are pre-assembled, rotatable tile and paver supports that can be variably adjusted from 60 - 130 mm with an adjustment ring and two opposing threads. The thread of Schlüter®-TROBA-LEVEL-PLV 60 features a protection mechanism against accidental loosening and a vibration lock. The paver support head incorporates 3 mm connectors and a perimeter spacer. Depending on the condition of the substrate, Schlüter®-TROBA-LEVEL-LV 3 can be installed in combination with Schlüter®-TROBA-LEVEL-PL 10 and Schlüter®-TROBA-LEVEL-PLA 30 for load distribution. Schlüter®-TROBA-LEVEL-LV 3 can also be used as stand-alone tile and paver supports in combination with Schlüter®-TROBA-LEVEL-AP 1 for particularly low assembly heights. Schlüter®-TROBA-LEVEL-LV 3 features 3 mm connectors.

The height adapters Schlüter®-TROBA-LEVEL-PLA 70 are fully screwed into the bottom plate of Schlüter®-TROBA-LEVEL-PLV 60. The thread of Schlüter®-TROBA-LEVEL-PLA 70 features a protection mechanism against accidental loosening and a vibration lock.
