General product information

What this product does

The trapezoid perforated anchoring leg of the Schlüter-BARA-RKB finishing profile is fully embedded in the coating.

BARA-RKB provides a neat finish of the covering, protects the edge of the coating with its 3 mm front leg, shields exposed screed edges and forms a protruding drip lip.

How to install this product

  1. Apply a contact layer in the edge area where Schlüter-BARA-RKB is to be installed.
  2. Press the trapezoid perforated anchoring leg of BARA-RKB into the contact layer and align. The profiles may need to be cleaned and degreased prior to installation.
  3. Completely cover the trapezoid perforated anchoring leg with bonding material. The finished surface coating should be flush with the upper edge of the profile.

A crack-bridging tape such as Schlüter-KERDI-BAND may be integrated in the coating in the area of the profile. Please note that the drip lip cannot always prevent the contact of the drainage water with the front edge and the wall area.
