Schlüter-SHOWERPROFILE-S

Two-piece triangular profile for floor-level showers

Discover our system solutions for floor-level showers with linear drainage! The two-piece triangular profile Schlüter-SHOWERPROFILE-S features a flat profile made of brushed stainless steel with a 2% slope for creating reliable covering for the sloped edges of floor-level showers. A fleece fabric is laminated on the underside of this profile for bonding with the tile adhesive.

The second part of SHOWERPROFILE-S is a matching rigid PVC support profile made of rigid PVC featuring a U shaped attachment channel, which is available in different heights. You can easily adjust the height of the shower profile as needed by cutting the extra long triangular profile at the low and/or high side. The triangular profile can be used on the left or right side of the floor transition or below the tiles of a lateral wall.

What this product does

Schlüter-SHOWERPROFILE-S is a two-piece triangular profile for covering the sloped edges of floor-level showers with a 2% slope for linear drainage. The triangular profile with a visible area of brushed stainless steel has a fleece fabric laminated on the underside for bonding with the tile adhesive and is inserted into the U-shaped groove of the rigid PVC support profile. The profile can be used as a lateral wall transition or as a lateral transition to the adjoining floor.

The PVC support profile is available in 6 heights from 3 mm to 22 mm to match the covering thickness of the shower floor. The triangular profiles, which are supplied in extra lengths of 120 cm to 200 cm have a height of 6 or 10 mm at the low side (H1) and feature a slope of 2% (increase of 2 mm for each 10 cm section).

The profile is shortened at the low and/or high side to produce the necessary profile height and length. Additional height variability can be achieved by inserting the profile into the U-shaped attachment at a specific depth.

How to install this product

The protective foil must be removed before installation.

  1. Cut the support profile to the required length and press its trapezoid-perforated anchoring leg firmly into the previously applied adhesive and align it.
  2. Measure the required length and height of the triangular profile (front: low side, back: high side). Keep the insertion depth into the U-shaped groove in mind.
  3. Cut the triangular profile to the required length to fit the proper height.

Note: Shorten the slim and/or wide profile side to produce the proper height from the extra long profile. Apply tile adhesive to the underside of the cut triangular profile. Then insert it into the U-shaped support profile and align it flush with the floor or wall.

What this product is made from

Schlüter-SHOWERPROFILE-S is available in the following materials:

  • EB = brushed stainless steel (V4A material no. 1.4404 = AISI 316L)

The profiles have a fleece fabric laminated on the underside for bonding with the tile adhesive. The SHOWERPROFILE-S support profile is made of recycled rigid PVC. The visible surface of the profile is covered with a protective foil.

In special cases, the suitability of the profiles must be verified based on the anticipated chemical or mechanical stresses. SHOWERPROFILE-S of stainless steel V4A (material no. 1.4404 = AISI 316L), is especially suitable for applications requiring resistance against chemical exposure and high mechanical stresses. Even stainless steel of quality 1.4404 is not resistant to all chemical stresses, and may be affected by hydrochloric and hydrofluoric acid or certain chloride and brine concentrations, which may occur in cleaning agents or in swimming pools. Special anticipated stresses should therefore be verified in advance.

How to look after this product

Schlüter-SHOWERPROFILE-S requires no special maintenance or care. The profile can be cleaned along with the covering, using suitable detergents. The visible surfaces of the profiles can be polished with commercial chrome-polishing products. Stainless steel surfaces exposed to the environment or aggressive substances should be cleaned periodically using a mild household cleaner.

Regular cleaning not only maintains the neat appearance of stainless steel, but also reduces the risk of corrosion.

All cleaning agents must be free of hydrochloric and hydrofluoric acid. Avoid contact with other metals, such as regular steel, to prevent corrosion. This also includes installation tools such as trowels or steel wool, e.g. for the removal of mortar residue. Do not use abrasive cleaning agents on the sensitive surfaces. We recommend the use of the stainless steel cleaning polish Schlüter-CLEAN-CP.
