Troy Tile & Stone is a proud dealer of Schluter Systems.
Schluter-KERDI is a bonded waterproof membrane with limited
crack-bridging capabilities. It is made of soft polyethylene, which is
covered on both sides with a special fleece webbing to anchor the
membrane in the thin-set mortar.
Schluter-KERDI was developed as a
waterproofing membrane to be used in conjunction with ceramic and stone
tile coverings. Tiles can be installed directly on Schluter-KERDI using
the thin-bed method. Other trowel-applied covering materials, such as
plaster, can also be used.
Pre-cut sections of Schluter-KERDI are
available for inside and outside corners, as well as for pipe collars.
Use Schluter-KERDI-BAND, in widths of 5" (12.5 cm), 7-1/4" (18.5 cm), or
10" (25 cm) to seal butt joints or corner joints. Schluter-KERDI-FLEX,
in 5" (12.5 cm) or 10" (25 cm) widths, is used to seal expansion joints
or flexible edge joints.
The Schluter-KERDI-SHOWER-KIT is an all inclusive package
containing each of the components required to create a maintenance-free,
watertight shower assembly without a mortar bed.
are prefabricated substrates, made of expanded polystyrene foam, for
tiled shower bases in conjunction with Schluter-KERDI waterproofing
membrane and Schluter-KERDI-DRAIN. Schluter-KERDI-SHOWER-ST is a
prefabricated, sloped shower tray that is specifically designed to
accept the Schluter-KERDI-DRAIN and Schluter-KERDI waterproofing
membrane. The tray is available in 48" x 48" (122 cm x 122 cm), 32" x
60" (81 cm x 152 cm), and 72" x 72" (183 cm x 183 cm) sizes.
Schluter-KERDI-SHOWER-SC is a prefabricated curb that can be used with
Schluter-KERDI-SHOWER-ST. Curb dimensions are 48" x 6" x 4-1/2" (122 cm x
15 cm x 11.5 cm).
The integrated Schluter-Shower System
eliminates the potential for leakage, efflorescence, and mold growth in
the system, is maintenance-free, and dramatically reduces total
installation time to ensure success and make shower installation easier
than ever. Schluter prefabricated shower substrates provide an
alternative to shower bases constructed of mortar. The shower tray and
curb are especially useful in large-scale, repetitive jobs, such as
hotels, apartments, and condominiums for the significant time savings
that can be realized.
Ceramic and stone tiles are durable, easy to maintain, and
hygienic, representing the ideal surface coverings. However, today's
lightweight construction methods can make the installation of hard
surface coverings particularly challenging. In order to protect the
integrity of the tile assembly, an underlayment that performs multiple
functions is required.
Schluter-DITRA is a polyethylene membrane
with a grid structure of square cavities, each cut back in a dovetail
configuration, and an anchoring fleece laminated to its underside.
Schluter-DITRA is bonded to the substrate using thin-set mortar. The
anchoring fleece on the underside of Schluter-DITRA is fully engaged in
the mortar to provide a mechanical bond to the substrate. Tile is
installed over Schluter-DITRA using the thin-bed method in such a way
that the mortar becomes mechanically anchored in the square, cutback
cavities of the Schluter-DITRA matting.
for ceramic tile and dimension stone installations, Schluter-DITRA
serves as an uncoupling layer, waterproofing membrane, and vapor
management layer that accommodates moisture from beneath the tile
covering. Further, DITRA performs all these functions while still
providing adequate support/load distribution for the tile covering.
Edge Protection & Transition Profiles for Floors
Schluter-SCHIENE finishes and protects the edges of tiled
surfaces at transitions to other surface coverings of the same height,
such as tile bordered by carpet.
Schluter-DECO finishes and protects the edges of tiled surfaces
at transitions to other surface coverings of the same height, such as
wood or carpet. The exposed surface of the Schluter-DECO is wider than
the Schluter-SCHIENE and can also be used to create decorative lines
within tile fields.
Schluter-RENO-T overlaps the edges of adjoining floor covering
surfaces of the same height (e.g., ceramic tile or natural stone,
parquet flooring, concrete pavers, laminate, etc.). Schluter-RENO-T can
be installed during the tile installation or retrofit an existing
Schluter-RENO-TK provides a sloped transition between tiled
surfaces and lower adjoining floor coverings, typically carpet. The
sloped flange of the profile hides and protects the cut edge of the
lower adjoining surface covering.
Schluter-RENO-U is designed to provide a smooth transition from
tile to lower floor coverings with a 4 mm edge that abuts the lower
Schluter-RENO-RAMP provides a gradual transition between tiled
surfaces and lower adjoining floor coverings. Ideal for commercial
applications where wheel carts are used (e.g., bakeries, hospitals,
Schluter-RENO-V is an adjustable transition profile designed to
provide a sloped transition between tiled and lower adjoining floor
coverings. The movable transition arm allows the profile to adjust to
the height of the lower adjacent floor covering.
