Grate and frame combination in special designs
FLORAL, CURVE and PURE are elegant design variants for the covers that are part of the Schlüter-KERDI-LINE-STYLE product range together with the matching contour frames. They are a true eye-catcher in floor-level showers. The slim contour frame can be seamlessly adjusted to coverings in heights of 6 to 18 mm. The grate and frame set made of brushed stainless steel matches the KERDI-LINE channel body and is available in various lengths from 50 cm to 120 cm.
We also have the storage solution, Schlüter-SHELF available in the same design patterns for a completely seamless look.
How to install this product
Mounting the frame and grate
- Insert the frame with the spacer strip.
- Use the height adjustment gauge to install the frame flush with the covering.
- Fill the space below the frame with thin-bed tile adhesive and fully embed the covering.
- Remove the spacer strip and height adjustment gauge after curing. You are now ready to attach the grate.
Note: Remove the protective foil from profile frame versions with a polished finish before grouting.
Residue of mortar and tile adhesive should be removed immediately.
Note: The use of acetic-crosslinking silicone is not permissible on channels, frames and grates.
What this product is made from
The stainless steel frames and grates are available in the following material version:
- V4A, material no. 1.4404 = AISI 316L.
Finish options of profile frames and grates:
- EB = brushed stainless steel
- EP = polished stainless steel
- EC = stainless steel, powder coated
Material properties and areas of application
The channel bodies, frames and grates are classified as K3 according to DIN EN 1253, Gullies for buildings. This class refers to areas without vehicle traffic, e.g. wetrooms in apartments, nursing homes, hotels, schools, and public washroom and shower facilities.
Channel bodies, frames and grates are suitable for wheelchair traffic.
KERDI-LINE in the brushed stainless steel V4A version (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 such as hydrochloric and hydrofluoric acid or certain chloride and brine concentrations.
In certain cases, this also applies to seawater pools. The suitability of a proposed floor drain system must be verified based on the anticipated chemical, mechanical and/or other stresses. Aggressive cleaning products should not be used.
The profile frames as well as the matching stainless steel grates A, B and C are also available with a textured finish. These are surfaces with a natural appearance. The stainless steel is pre-treated, then powder-coated with a polyurethane covering. The colour-stable coating is UV and weather-resistant. Surface areas must be protected against abrasion or scratching.
Maintenance & Care
How to look after this product
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 (especially for EP = polished stainless steel).
We recommend the use of the stainless steel cleaning polish Schlüter-CLEAN-CP.
