Balcony edge profile with drip lip
Schlüter-BARA-FAP is a 160 mm high edge profile with a drip lip that is designed to cover the exposed perimeters of cantilevered balconies. It is made of high-quality, colour-coated aluminium. Depending on the properties of the exposed perimeters, the profile can be attached mechanically or adhered with the adhesive Schlüter-KERDI-FIX.
BARA-FAP is compatible with all profiles of the BARA product family. We recommend the joint covering Schlüter-BARA-STU as a connector.
How to install this product
- Place the horizontal leg of the product flush on the concrete slab.
- Depending on the properties of the exposed perimeters, it can be adhered with the adhesive Schlüter-KERDI-FIX or attached mechanically.
Substrates on which the profile is to be installed need to be evaluated for their stability. Prior to the use of KERDI-FIX, all components of the surface that may weaken the bond must be removed. If that is not an option, use anchors and screws for additional mechanical attachment.
If screw attachment is necessary, position the screws in the top area of the profile. They can then be covered with an edge profile of the Schlüter-BARA product family.
To avoid vibrations in the screw-attached option, additional adhesion is recommended in the lower section.
