Transition profile for subsequent height adjustment
Schlüter-RENO-RAMP-K is a proﬁle for creating stepless transitions between heavily used tile coverings to adjoining coverings of a lower height. The profile can be retrofitted between the covering material and the substrate for subsequent height adjustment.
What this product does
Schlüter-RENO-RAMP-K is a profile for a stepless transition between floor coverings of different heights, for example for the transition from tiles to carpet. In addition, it protects the edge of adjacent coverings. The joint spacer creates a uniform joint cavity with the tile.
RENO-RAMP-K has a slope of approximately 8°. As it does not have an anchoring leg, it can be retrofitted between the covering material and the substrate for subsequent height adjustment.
How to install this product
Always check the substrates on which Schlüter-RENO-RAMP-K is to be installed to make sure they are level, load-bearing, clean and compatible with the materials to be used. Remove all surface components that may weaken the bond.
- Apply a suitable tile adhesive or epoxy resin mortar on the substrate.
- Fill the underside of the profile with adhesive and then fully embed the profile.
What this product is made from
Schlüter-RENO-RAMP-K is available in the following material:
- AE = anodised aluminium
Material properties and areas of application
In special cases, the suitability of a proposed type of profile must be verified, based on anticipated chemical, mechanical, and/or other stresses.
Schlüter-RENO-RAMP-K profiles made of anodised aluminium have an anodised finish that retains a uniform appearance during normal use. Minor manufacturing flaws are unavoidable on their untreated surfaces. Aluminium is sensitive to alkaline. Cementitious materials, in conjunction with moisture, become alkaline, which may result in corrosion depending on the concentration and length of exposure (aluminium hydroxide formation). Any adhesive, mortar or grout must therefore be removed from visual areas immediately. They are also abrasive which can damage the finish. The profile must be solidly embedded in the setting material to prevent alkaline water from accumulating in small cavities.
Maintenance & Care
How to look after this product
The profiles require no special maintenance or care. Oxidation films on aluminium may be removed with a common polishing agent; however, they do reoccur. Damaged anodised surfaces can be restored with paint. 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.
