  • Cohesive Shower Design Made Easier

    Porcelain tiles that reproduce the appearance of wood, concrete, & stone and genuine natural stone tiles are the surface covering of choice in many bathroom and shower projects. These natural tones, as well as black and white, continue to be the most frequently used and on-trend colors in tiles. Designers and owners are looking for finishes that can support and complement these popular tones. Schluter-Systems’ popular TRENDLINE textured finishes will now also be applied to the 4” square KERDI-DRAIN-STYLE series of shower drain grates and the recently launched Schluter®-SHELF shower shelves.

    The same highly-durable powder coating procedure used to apply these finishes to Schluter profiles is now being used on the drain grates and on all five designs of shower shelves. In total, six different finishes are available on profiles, grates, and shelves so they can all match for a more cohesive overall design. The finishes are: matte black, matte white, stone grey, greige, cream, and bronze.

  • Components Provide Precise Results

    Exterior tile installations have always held many challenges for installers. Managing proper drainage and preventing damaged tiles are particularly difficult in harsh climates or areas with wide temperature swings or a lot of moisture. The proliferation of 2 cm thick porcelain tiles has created an opportunity for exterior installations to be done much more easily and with greater success. Schluter-TROBA-LEVEL™ is a paver support system designed specifically for use with thick porcelain tiles rated for exterior use.

    The TROBA-LEVEL paver support system, or pedestals, supports the tiles above the substrate with no bonding system required. This elevated system has a number of advantages over traditional bonded tile methods including simple installation, natural drainage, and ventilation.

    The system is available with several accessories designed to manage sloped substrates and different thicknesses of tile so that a level terrace or patio can be installed over an uneven substrate. Through the use of different supports, shims, and spacers the installer can create a level patio with precise transitions and flush seams and corners.

    Because tiles are not bonded in place, the system allows for quick and easy access to waterproofing, drainage systems, or utilities beneath the finished patio floor.

    This new system is now available.

  • Schluter® Expands DESIGNBASE-SL Product Line

    Baseboards in commercial buildings must be durable and attractive, and often need to meet specific code and hygienic requirements. Schluter-Systems is expanding its line of Schluter®-DESIGNBASE-SL top-set wall baseboards that provide a modern alternative to traditional baseboards for commercial buildings and condominiums. The product line now includes a brushed stainless steel option, in heights of 4-3/8” (110 mm) and 6-3/8” (160 mm), which exceed code requirements in a wide range of facilities including healthcare, commercial kitchens, commercial bathrooms, airports, and many others.

    These new heights are ideal for covering previous baseboard marks, making replacement projects faster, easier, and more attractive. Both of these new heights, in combination with the cove profile of the baseboard, exceed the code requirements for commercial applications so specifiers and installers can be confident in their compliance with these codes, especially where sanitation is a concern.

    Because it is made of metal, DESIGNBASE-SL provides added durability and won’t crack or shrink over time, eliminating a common problem with many commercial baseboards. Made without the anchoring leg used on traditional Schluter profiles and trim pieces, DESIGNBASE-SL-E is designed to be installed after the floor and is suitable for use over any type of new floor surface. The cove-shaped base sits on top of the floor and is attached to the wall using a suitable adhesive such as Schluter®-KERDI-FIX. This design offers a few notable advantages, starting with fast and easy installation. Because it sits on top of the finished floor it is also ideal in situations where the floor is still in good condition but the baseboard needs to be replaced. DESIGNBASE-SL also offers cost-savings over custom fabricated baseboards.

    An optional sealing lip accessory is offered to protect the floor/wall transition from moisture penetration and to reduce the transmission of impact sound. Corner pieces, connectors, and end caps are also available to give a professional finish to any project.

    The previous DESIGNBASE offering will continue to be available. These items include anodized aluminum in a satin finish, a brushed stainless steel appearance, and color-coated aluminum in matte white, all available  in 2-3/8” (60 mm) and 3-1/8” (80 mm) heights.

  • Planning a successful tile project can be time consuming and challenging. The new Schluter®-
    APP puts all the necessary Schluter resources in one place – on any iPhone or Android mobile device. Information on all Schluter’s systems and solutions can be found on the app. It can be used for every facet of project planning, from measuring the space, all the way through to pricing and connecting with an authorized dealer.

    Working from the app, a smartphone can be used to scan and measure a room during the planning phase of the project. The data collected can be used to configure and customize the layout and build a personalized project plan.

    The results can then be shared electronically with a client or coworker. This layout information can improve client communications by providing a clear visual guide from the beginning to the end of any project.

    Products can be configured right down to the size, color, format and quantity and can also be priced immediately. Product selections will also prompt video recommendations so installers can get installation guidance wherever and whenever they need it.

    For floor warming projects the built-in DITRA-HEAT Estimator will help with product selection, and then provide an estimate for the materials required.

    The app also provides easy access to the network of Authorized Schluter Dealers across North America. Users can search by location and generate a list of nearby dealers. After selecting a dealer, the app will provide directions to the location making it even easier to get materials to the job site.

  • Floor Profiles
    Schluter®-Systems offers a vast selection of floor profiles that protect tile edges between floor coverings at both equal and lower elevations....

  • Tiled floors are elegant, easy to maintain, and unlike carpets, do not harbor common allergens and dust mites. Transitions from a tiled floor to other surfaces need to be protected, and floor profiles are designed to ensure a smooth transition, while preventing tile edges from chipping and cracking. Schluter®-Systems offers a vast selection of floor profiles that protect tile edges between floor coverings at both equal and lower elevations.

    Schluter® floor profiles improve the integrity of the tile assembly, are maintenance-free, and are available in a variety of shapes, sizes, materials, and finishes to complement the design of any room.

  • Wall Profiles
    Schluter®-Profiles inspire endless creativity while providing superior edge-protection to tiled walls....

  • From framing a shower niche to accentuating a fireplace surround, Schluter®-Profiles inspire endless creativity while providing superior edge-protection to tiled walls. Schluter®-Profiles add the perfect finishing touch to tiled walls as they conceal and protect exposed tile edges and eliminate the need for unsightly caulking. The vast selection of materials, colors, and finishes allows for a myriad of design options. The assortment of available accessories, including end caps and corners, eliminate the need for mitering, expedite installation time, and provide a nice, clean finish.
  • Countertop Edge Profiles
    Schluter®-Profiles for countertops increase design flexibility while protecting tile edges....

  • Tiled countertops provide the ultimate in durability and practicality, and when designed with large-format tiles, have minimal grout lines to create a beautiful, seamless look. Resistant to staining, scratching, and high heat, tiled countertops require no maintenance and are easy to clean with standard household products.

    Schluter®-Profiles for countertops increase design flexibility while protecting tile edges. Cover the subassembly using a profile with a wide reveal, or frame a designated area for bonding accent tile. Do-away with caulking around the sink and bring the elegance of your tile installation to the next level. With a large assortment of available materials, colors, and finishes, Schluter®-Profiles can accommodate all style preferences, from rustic to modern. A wide selection of accessories expedites and completes the installation process.

  • Schluter®-Systems stair-nosing profiles protect tile edges from cracking, protect and conceal the subassembly, increase visibility, and reduce slip hazards—all while providing decorative accents within the tile covering. Schluter® stair-nosing profiles are available in a variety of shapes, sizes, materials, and finishes, with options designed for both commercial and residential applications.
  • Cove-shaped Profiles
    Schluter®-DILEX cove-shaped profiles provide an attractive, clean, and maintenance-free alternative for inside wall corners and floor/wall (including countertop/backsplash) transitions....

  • Cove bases are a practical and hygienic method for treating floor-to-wall or wall-to-wall transitions, as they provide a curved surface that is easy to clean and prevent the accumulation of dirt. However, the limited availability of ceramic trim pieces has resulted in the use of sealant and caulk to treat such transitions. These joints must be continually maintained throughout the life of the installation. Schluter®-DILEX cove-shaped profiles provide an attractive, clean, and maintenance-free alternative for inside wall corners and floor/wall (including countertop/backsplash) transitions. Plus, they completely eliminate the need for caulk. DILEX profiles accommodate the use of any tile line, regardless of the availability of trim pieces.
  • Movement Joint Profiles
    Schluter-Systems’ prefabricated movement joint profiles protect tile edges and prevent sound bridges and surface water penetration, resulting in a permanent, maintenance-free installation....

  • Movement joints are an integral part of any tile assembly and must be incorporated within the tile field at doorsills, and at transitions to walls and other restraining structures to allow movement of the assembly and prevent stresses that can damage the system. Schluter-Systems’ prefabricated movement joint profiles protect tile edges and prevent sound bridges and surface water penetration, resulting in a permanent, maintenance-free installation. The family of Schluter®-DILEX prefabricated movement profiles includes a variety of shapes, sizes, and materials to suit different applications.
  • Shower System
    Schluter®-Shower System eliminates the risk of failures due to water and vapor penetration and dramatically reduces total installation time....

  • Contrary to popular belief, tiles and grout joints are not inherently waterproof, and must be installed in conjunction with a waterproofing system that effectively manages moisture and prevents mold growth.

    The Schluter®-Shower System is an integrated family of products that together form a fully bonded, watertight assembly for tiled showers. The Schluter®-Shower System eliminates the risk of failures due to water and vapor penetration and dramatically reduces total installation time. From drains to shower benches to waterproofing pipe seals, Schluter®-Systems offers everything you need to ensure a dependable and watertight installation.

  • Building Panels
    Schluter®-KERDI-BOARD, a multifunctional waterproof building panel....

  • Schluter®-KERDI-BOARD, a multifunctional waterproof building panel, gives you more control over your tile installation project by providing you with the means to simply and easily create ideal substrates for tile. With KERDI-BOARD, you can build custom vanities, shelving units, bathtub surrounds, free-standing partition walls, kitchen islands, and so much more. Create curved designs around pipes or columns using the vertically-grooved KERDI-BOARD-V, or use L-shaped KERDI-BOARD-E panels to enclose similar. Bring all of these elements together using the profiles and fasteners specifically designed for KERDI-BOARD assemblies. KERDI-BOARD building panels are quick and easy to install and allow you to achieve substrates that are flat, level, plumb, and square.
  • Schluter®-DITRA & DITRA-XL
    Uncoupling membranes...

  • Schluter®-DITRA and DITRA-XL are specifically designed for ceramic and stone tile installations. DITRA and DITRA-XL provide uncoupling to prevent cracked tile and grout. Made of polyethylene, DITRA and DITRA-XL serve as a waterproofing layer that protects moisture-sensitive substrates, such as plywood/OSB. Free-space on the underside of the matting provides a route for excess moisture and vapor to prevent damage to the tile layer above. DITRA and DITRA-XL perform all these functions while still providing adequate support/load distribution for the tile covering.
  • Schluter®-DITRA-HEAT & DITRA-HEAT-DUO
    Floor Warming...

  • Combine the beauty and durability of stone, tile, or resilient floor coverings (WPC, LVT, LVP, etc.,) with the comfort of an electric floor warming system to bring a touch of luxury into any room of the home. DITRA-HEAT is the only electric floor warming system that directly incorporates uncoupling technology to ensure that floors aren't susceptible to cracked tiles and grout. Cables can be placed wherever heat is desired for customized heating zones, and no leveling compounds are required, which makes for a quick and easy installation. 

    With the proven technology of our DITRA uncoupling membrane incorporated in the design, DITRA-HEAT provides the ideal solution for bringing comfort and floor warming to any tiled floor.

  • Schluter-Systems’ thin-set mortars
    Premium Unmodified Thin-set Mortar, Specialized Modified Thin-set Mortar, and Specialized Rapid-setting Thin-set Mortar...

  • All Schluter-Systems’ thin-set mortars, including the ALL-SET and FAST-SET modified varieties can be used to set tile over Schluter®-DITRA, DITRA-HEAT, KERDI, and KERDI-BOARD products. Made right here in North America, Schluter thin-set mortars are formulated to ensure that you, the installer, get consistent and steadfast results with respect to sag-resistance, texture, and workability. 

    Whether you’re setting tile or Schluter membranes and boards, the proper mixing technique is essential to ensuring perfect consistency, outstanding workability and optimal performance.
