Schlüter-BARA-RKKE is a T-shaped finishing profile with a short drip lip for the exposed edges of covering assemblies on balconies and terraces with finished sloped screeds.
BARA-RKKE is especially suited for assemblies with the bonded drainage mat Schlüter-DITRA-DRAIN. Its perforated outer edges give the exterior perimeter of tiled areas a neat appearance.
The profile also covers the exposed edges of the bonded drainage assembly DITRA-DRAIN below the covering. The cross section of the profile openings is sufficiently large to guarantee drainage and ventilation.
BARA-RKKE creates a neat finish and protects the exposed edges from weather influences and corrosion. The profile is installed in the edge area by adhering the trapezoid perforated anchoring leg with a dry setting thin-bed tile adhesive.
To create a bonded waterproofing assembly, attach Schlüter-KERDI with the sealing adhesive Schlüter-KERDI-COLL-L or the installation adhesive Schlüter-KERDI-FIX, fully covering the perforated anchoring leg and the bonding flange. If using trowel-applied chemical materials for bonded waterproofing, follow the installation instructions of the respective manufacturer.
Thanks to the short design of the drip lip, BARA-RKKE is particularly well suited for balconies and terraces with railings mounted on the front side.
