APPLICATION AND FUNCTION
Schlüter-BARA-R is a T-shaped edging profile for the exposed edges of floor assemblies on balconies and terraces. The profile provides a neat edge appearance while protecting the exposed edges of the floor surface against weathering and corrosion. During the application of the screed, the trapezoid-perforated anchoring leg of Schlüter-BARA-R is solidly embedded in the screed mortar bed while the upper edge of the profile is used to screed the mortar bed to the appropriate height. Install Schlüter-TROBA or Schlüter-TROBA-PLUS as surface drainage between the waterproofing layer and the mortar bed in order to prevent penetrating water from collecting in the screed layer.
If Schlüter-DITRA is to be installed, the screed is levelled 3 mm below the top of the profile. Schlüter-DITRA uncouples the tile covering from the screed and neutralises stresses caused by differential movement, primarily due to temperature fluctuations, between the screed and the tile. In addition, Schlüter-DITRA in conjunction with the tile covering creates a bonded surface waterproof layer.
