Schlüter-BARA-RAKE is a finishing profile for the exposed edges of covering assemblies on balconies and terraces with finished sloped screeds.
BARA-RAKE is especially suited for assemblies with the bonded drainage mat Schlüter-DITRA-DRAIN. The 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-RAKE is installed in the edge area by adhering the trapezoid perforated anchoring leg with a dry setting thin-bed tile adhesive.
Schlüter-KERDI may be used as a bonded waterproofing assembly. Other options for waterproofing include trowel-applied bonded waterproofing compounds.
BARA-RAKE results in a clean edge finish and protects the open screed edges from weather and corrosion.
