Schlüter®-TROBA-LINE-TL/-TLR/-TLR-E | Installation | Schlüter-Systems



  1. The balcony or terrace area must feature a functional and sloped waterproofing assembly.
  2. Set Schlüter®-TROBA-LINE onto mortar points or install Schlüter®-TROBA-LINE-TL/H in the area of door elements or wall connections with the use of the height adjustment feature to stop water from accumulating. When installing Schlüter®-TROBA-LINE, it must be ensured that the number of mortar points or height adjustments, on which Schlüter®-TROBA-LINE rests, matches the expected loads. In order to guarantee proper water drainage, a sufficient part of the channel may not have mortar underneath.
  3. In typical installations, Schlüter®-TROBA or Schlüter®-TROBA-PLUS should first be laid over the waterproofing layer as an area drainage and protective layer. Regardless of the installation system of the surface covering, a sufficiently large drainage space must be ensured above the waterproofing layer, in which the water draining off through Schlüter®-TROBA-LINE can securely run off to the drainage exit.
  4. If several channel elements are to be combined, they can be connected with the U-shaped parts (see Fig. 1). The same U-shaped parts can also serve as end caps (Fig. 2).
  5. The screed or other selected covering construction is now installed in such a way that it abuts the properly aligned Schlüter®-TROBA-LINE. Reinforcement: When using the drainage channels Schlüter®-TROBA-LINE-TL and -TLG in the widths 110 mm and 160 mm, it may be necessary to install the reinforcement Schlüter®-TROBA-LINE-TL/V, depending on the load.
