Schluter®

Drains

The classically-inspired Schluter®-KERDI-DRAIN is offered in a variety of grate finishes and accommodates a wide range of tile thicknesses. KERDI-DRAIN features an integrated bonding flange to which the KERDI waterproofing membrane is adhered and forms a waterproof connection at the top of the tile assembly.

Prefer something a little more luxurious? The Schluter®-KERDI-LINE low-profile linear drain takes your tiled shower to the next level—and is the ideal drain for curbless bathrooms. KERDI-LINE is available with several grate designs, including a frameless tileable covering support, which virtually disappears in the field tile. KERDI-LINE can be installed adjacent to walls or at intermediate locations in showers, steam rooms, wet rooms, and other applications that require drainage.

Floor Warming

Combine the beauty and durability of tile with the comfort of an electric floor warming system to bring a touch of luxury into any room of the home. DITRA-HEAT is an 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 offers complete exterior assemblies, including drainage membranes, a gutter system and edging profiles, to provide a neat appearance and protect the lateral edge of the screed. Schluter®-Systems’ fully integrated assemblies for balconies and terraces ensure proper water management for successful finished results.

Membranes

Waterproofing (KERDI)

Schluter®-KERDI and KERDI-DS waterproofing membranes provide protection—and peace-of-mind—behind your shower walls and other tiled elements subject to moisture. KERDI and KERDI-DS are pliable, sheet-applied, bonded waterproof membranes and vapor retarders with limited crack-bridging capabilities.

Uncoupling (DITRA)

Tile has been successfully installed for thousands of years by incorporating an uncoupling layer, or forgiving shear interface, within the tile assembly. Schluter®-DITRA membranes provide uncoupling through free space, which allows for in-plane movement that effectively neutralizes the differential movement stresses between the substrate and the tile, thus eliminating the major cause of cracking and delaminating of the tiled surface.

Profiles

Ceramic and stone tiles are ideal floor coverings due to their durability and aesthetic appeal. Schluter®-Systems offers an extensive line of finishing and edge-protection profiles in a variety of shapes, colors, patterns, and sizes that open the door to limitless design possibilities and provide attractive alternatives to trim pieces.

Schluter®-Profiles protect tile edges from cracking and chipping, eliminate the need for caulking, and provide easy transitions between adjacent floor and wall coverings. Integrated within any field tile, Schluter®-Profiles can add bold or subtle elements of design, while ensuring the integrity of your tile installation.

Can be used for Floors, Walls, Stairs, Countertops, Cove-Shaped Profiles, and Movement Joint Profiles.
 

Shower System

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.

Schluter®-Shower System includes Waterproofing, Drains, Prefabricated Substrates, Accessories, and Shower & Tub Kits.
