Schluter-DESIGNLINE Wall/Floor Tile Border Decorative Profiles

Application and Function

Schluter-DESIGNLINE is a border profile for producing decorative designs in interior wall coverings.

The profile is available in stainless steel, chrome-plated solid brass and anodized aluminum and is designed to coordinate with the corresponding Schluter-RONDEC profiles for outside wall corners.

Schluter-DESIGNLINE has a 1" (25 mm) wide surface area and a thickness of 1/4" (6 mm). It is anchored in the mortar bond coat between tile courses via its cross sectional shape and can be used with thicker tiles by building up the setting material behind the profile.

Installation

  1. Schluter-DESIGNLINE may be used with tiles that are 1/4" (6 mm) thick or greater.
  2. Set tiles up to the area where Schluter-DESIGNLINE is to be installed as a decorative strip. Apply a sufficient amount of thin-set mortar to this area and/or to the back of Schluter-DESIGNLINE to achieve full coverage of the profile. Press the profile into the mortar until its surface is flush with the tile.
  3. Set the adjacent row of tiles.
  4. Set the tile to the integrated joint spacer, which ensures a uniform joint of 1/16" - 1/8" (1.5 - 3 mm). With the stainless steel profiles, leave a space of approximately 1/16" - 1/8" (1.5 - 3 mm).
  5. Fill joints completely with grout or setting material.
  6. Work with materials and tools that will not scratch or damage sensitive surfaces. Setting materials and grouts must be removed immediately, especially from anodized aluminum surfaces.

Material

Schluter-DESIGNLINE is available in chrome-plated brass, anodized aluminum, and stainless steel.

The suitability of a proposed type of profile must be verified based on the anticipated chemical, mechanical, and/or other stresses.

Schluter-DESIGNLINE, in chrome-plated brass, sustains high levels of mechanical stress. The profile is ideal for matching chrome fixtures. All visible surfaces must be protected against abrasion or scratching.

Schluter-DESIGNLINE, in anodized aluminum, features an anodized layer that retains a uniform appearance during normal use. The surface, however, is susceptible to scratching and wear and may be damaged by grout or setting material. Cementitious materials, in conjunction with moisture, become alkaline. Since aluminum is sensitive to alkaline substances, exposure to the alkali (depending on the concentration and duration of exposure) may result in corrosion (aluminum oxide formation). Therefore, it is important to remove mortar or grout residue immediately from visible surfaces. In addition, ensure that the profile is solidly embedded in the setting material and that all cavities are filled to prevent the collection of alkaline water.

Schluter-DESIGNLINE, in stainless steel, is roll-formed using 304 (1.4301 = V2A) stainless steel, making it particularly suited for high mechanical or chemical stress. The stainless steel profile may also be used in floor coverings.

Maintenance

Schluter-DESIGNLINE requires no special maintenance or care and is resistant to mold and fungi. Clean the profile using common household cleaning agents.

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. Stainless steel surfaces develop a sheen when treated with a chrome polishing agent.

In the case of chrome-plated brass and anodized aluminum, do not use abrasive cleaning agents. Damage to the anodized layer can be repaired by applying varnish.
