metal profile / edge
Schlüter®-BARA-RTKE/-RTKEG are finishing profiles for the exposed edges of covering assemblies on balconies and terraces with finished sloped screeds.
Schlüter®-BARA-RTKE is especially suited for assemblies with the bonded drainage mat Schlüter®-DITRA-DRAIN. The perforated outer edges give the outer perimeter of tiled areas a neat appearance.
In addition, the profile covers the exposed edges of the bonded drainage mat Schlüter®-DITRA-DRAIN, which is installed under the covering. The cross section of the profile openings is sufficiently large to guarantee drainage and ventilation.
The trapezoid perforated anchoring leg of Schlüter®-BARA-RTKE is attached to the exposed edges with a dry set tile adhesive. The bonded waterproofing mat Schlüter®- KERDI is installed over the perforated anchoring leg and the adhesive flange of the profile with the sealing adhesive Schlüter®- KERDI-COLL. If trowel applied bonded waterproofing products are used, the corresponding installation instructions of the manufacturer must be observed.
