Schlüter-BEKOTEC-DRAIN is a reliable covering assembly system for crack free and functionally safe exterior screeds with ceramic or natural stone coverings.
Installation is preferred by Schlüter-Systems trained installers.
The system is based on the specially structured studded foil panel Schlüter-BEKOTEC-EN 23 FD with evenly spaced openings and interconnected drainage channels, which, depending on the construction, is either installed over a sloped waterproofing layer or over the area drainage membrane Schlüter-TROBA-PLUS
Schlüter-BEKOTEC-EN 23 FD is a high impact polystyrene panel and is suitable for use with conventional cement screeds
Schlüter-BEKOTEC-EN 23 FD and Schlüter-BEKOTEC-BRS does not rot and require no special maintenance or care
The Schlüter-BEKOTEC-DRAIN system is designed to reduce shearing tensions in the screed within the grid of the studded panel. No construction reinforcement is required
Water seeping into the covering assembly drains through the openings of the studded panel to the sloped waterproofing layer or drainage layer, flowing through the assembly’s hollow chambers without creating any pressure
The cover assembly of the Schlüter-BEKOTEC-DRAIN system is free of inherent stresses so no buckling can occur in the area
The regular patterns of the Schlüter-BEKOTEC-DRAIN system evenly reduce tensions in the screed, which allows for constructing the screed without movement joints
The design of movement joints can match the joint pattern of the tile or stone covering, since it is not necessary to continue construction joints from the screed into the surface covering
Schlüter-Systems offers a five year warranty for the life of the cover assembly, provided all installation instructions were observed and the covering is used as intended
Installation is preferred by Schlüter-Systems trained installers
