General product information

What this product does

Schlüter-SHELF is an integrated shelf solution - available in brushed stainless steel or aluminium with the premium TRENDLINE textured powder coating or in your preferred RAL colour - in the design variants FLORAL, CURVE, PURE, SQUARE and WAVE. It can be used as a storage shelf in all tiled wall areas (e.g., showers, tiled kitchen surfaces).

Schlüter-SHELF-N are rectangular shelves for use in prefabricated Schlüter-KERDI-BOARD-N/-NLT niches.

They can be directly integrated into KERDI-BOARD-N/-NLT niches during tile installation for a precise fit.

Their placement on the tile edges and subsequent application of silicone ensures optimum load transfer.

How to install this product

Prefabricated niches - installation in Schlüter-KERDI-BOARD-N/-NLT

  1. Install the tiles within the niche to the height where Schlüter-SHELF-N is to be placed.
  2. Loosely place SHELF-N on the edge of the tile – with the rounded edges facing back – to replace the joint within the niche. Now continue the tile installation.
  3. Once the grout material has set, apply a silicone bead around the shelf on all sides.
  4. Observe the curing time of the silicone bead before using the shelf.

What this product is made from

Schlüter-SHELF is available in the following materials:

  • EB = brushed stainless steel V2A material no. 1.4301 = AISI 304
  • TS = textured coated aluminium

Material properties and areas of application

Schlüter-SHELF is available in a wide variety of materials and finishes.

In special cases, the suitability of the shelf must be verified, based on the anticipated chemical or mechanical stresses.

The information provided below is intended as a general guideline.

Schlüter-SHELF-EB is made of brushed stainless steel V2A (material no. 1.4301 = AISI 304). Stainless steel is particularly well suited for applications that, in addition to heavy mechanical stresses, require resistance to chemicals such acidic or alkaline media and detergents. Even stainless steel is not resistant to all chemical stresses, and may be affected by e.g. hydrochloric and hydrofluoric acid or certain chloride and brine concentrations. In certain cases, that also applies to seawater pools. Special anticipated stresses should therefore be verified in advance.

SHELF-TS (textured coated aluminium) features surfaces with a natural appearance. The aluminium is powder-coated with a polyurethane covering. The colour-stable coating is UV and weather-resistant. Visible edges should be protected against abrasion.

How to look after this product

Schlüter-SHELF requires no special maintenance or care. Do not use abrasive cleaning agents on the sensitive surfaces.

Stainless steel surfaces exposed to the environment or aggressive substances should be cleaned periodically using a mild household cleaner. Regular cleaning maintains the neat appearance of stainless steel and 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.
