Schlüter®-BEKOTEC-EN 18 FTS
Description

Features:

  • The floating system is installed directly on load bearing, weight distributing substrates such as concrete or existing timber floor structures.
  • Schlüter-BEKOTEC-EN 18 FTS with 5 mm impact sound insulation is made from a high-impact polystyrene deep drawn foil. The impact sound fleece is made of a special textile blend.
  • Sound insulation provides an improvement of impact sound insulation by 25 dB*.
  • Ceramic or natural stone tiles are installed directly over this layer, using the thin-bed method.
  • Movement joints in the covering layer are created using Schlüter-DILEX according to industry guidelines.
  • The design of movement joints can match the joint pattern of the tiles or stone covering.
  • Schlüter-BEKOTEC-EN 18 FTS, ENFG and BRS are non-rotting and require no special maintenance or care.
  • The Schlüter-BEKOTEC system is designed to reduce shear tension in the screed within the grid of the studded panel. No construction reinforcement is required.
  • The studs have a cutback design to securely keep heating pipes in place without the need for clamps.
  • The studded panels are connected by overlapping a row of studs and clicking the panels together.
  • The cover assembly of the Schlüter-BEKOTEC system is free of inherent stresses. Consequently, curling is virtually impossible to occur in the area. This is especially applicable in the presence of temperature fluctuations, e.g. with heated screeds.
  • The floor heating system is easily adjustable and ideally suited for use with low temperatures.
  • Schlüter-Systems offers a five year warranty.

Installation is preferred by Schlüter-Systems trained installers.

* An evaluation in accordance with DIN EN ISO 717-2 determined an impact sound insulation improvement by 25 dB. However, the actual impact sound reduction of an assembly depends on the local circumstances (construction system) and may differ from this value. Consequently, the determined test values cannot be generally applied to specific construction site situations. Reliable values can only be determined with direct measurements on site with consideration for the actual construction system.

  • Working area: 1.4 x 0.8 m = 1.12 m².
  • Panel height: 23 mm (including 5 mm impact sound insulation).

Product Options

Accessories:

Levelling panel:

  • The levelling panel Schlüter-BEKOTEC-ENFG TS5 is installed in door transition areas and in the area of heating circuit distributors to simplify connections and minimise cutting waste. It consists of smooth polystyrene foil material with 5 mm impact sound insulation and is adhered below the studded panels, using the supplied double-sided adhesive tape. It may be necessary to remove the impact sound insulation of the studded panel in the transition area.
  • Dimensions: 1400 x 800 mm.

Pipe clamping strip:

  • Schlüter-BEKOTEC-ZRKL 10/12 is a pipe clamping strip for securing the pipes on the levelling panel. The clamping strips are self-adhesive to allow for permanent attachment on the levelling panel.
  • Length: 800 mm.

Double-sided adhesive tape:

  • Schlüter-BEKOTEC-BTZDK66 is a double-sided adhesive tape for adhering the studded panel to the levelling panel or to the substrate if necessary.
  • Roll: 66 m, height: 30 mm, thickness: 1 mm.

Edge strip:

Schlüter-BEKOTEC-BRS 808 KSF is an edge strip of closed cell polyethylene foam with an integrated foil leg that features an adhesive strip on both sides for attachment. The adhesion on the substrate and the pre-tensioning of the integrated foil leg push the edge strip toward the wall. When the studded Schlüter-BEKOTEC panel is laid on top of the adhesive strip, the panel is permanently adhered to the substrate and flowing screed can no longer get beneath the panel. Roll: 25 m, height: 80 mm, thickness: 8 mm.

Expansion joint profile:

  • Schlüter-DILEX-DFP is an expansion joint profile for installation in door transition areas to prevent sound bridges Thanks to the bilateral coating and the self-adhesive strip, straight line installation is very easy.
  • Length: 1.00 m, height: 60 / 80 / 100 mm, thickness 10 mm.
  • Length: 2.50 m, height: 100 mm, thickness: 10 mm.
