Application

For permanently flexible corner joints at floor/ wall transitions and skirting.

Description

Two piece profiles with a tongue and groove connection consisting of a material combination of recycled rigid PVC for the lateral anchoring legs and soft CPE for the expansion zone of the tongue and groove connection. Installation is preferred by Schlüter-Systems trained installers.


Features and benefits:

  • The flexible tongue and groove connection is capable of absorbing movements up to 8 mm. Such movements occur particularly in edge joints of coverings over floating screeds and in heated screeds in the area of floor/ wall transitions and along skirting.
  • The chamber of the lower profile portion of Schlüter-DILEX-EK allows for sliding the cut edges of floor tiles into place.
  • The profile Schlüter-DILEX-RF does not have such a chamber. This allows for a wide selection of tile thicknesses, since tiles can be installed at a lower level. The reduced size of the visible area makes the edge joint appear narrow and decorative.
  • The use of Schlüter-DILEX-EK and Schlüter- DILEX-RF reliably prevents the formation of sound bridges in the floor/wall transition, which reduces the transmission of sound.
  • The material is resistant to the chemical stresses that are typically associated with tile coverings.
  • The soft CPE movement zone is UV resistant and can withstand exposure to weather. It is also resistant to fungi and bacteria and is, therefore, suited for use around food. The CPE material is resistant to a number of acids, alkalis, oils, greases and solvents.
  • Schlüter-DILEX-EK requires no special maintenance.
  • The visible areas are of identical colour.
