Schluter DILEX-HKS Stainless Steel Cove-Shaped Movement Joint Profiles

  • For inside wall corners and floor/wall transitions.
  • Prevents accumulation of dirt, making cleaning simple; Prevents surface water penetration.
  • Soft, thermoplastic rubber movement zone absorbs larger movements.

Application and Function

Ceramic cove base represents a neat, hygienic method for treating transitions by providing a curved surface that prevents the collection of dirt and is easy to clean. However, the limited availability of ceramic trim pieces has resulted in the use of sealant and caulk to treat such transitions. These joints must be continually maintained throughout the life of the installation.

Schluter-DILEX-HKS features a soft, thermoplastic rubber movement zone that is attached to the profile via rigid rubber grip bars to absorb larger movements at floor/wall transitions and at inside wall corners.

The profile's 23/32" (18.5 mm) radius prevents the accumulation of dirt and makes cleaning simple. The profile separates the tile fields that meet at inside corners where limited movement is expected.

Schluter-DILEX-HKS prevents surface water penetration and meet the maintenance and hygienic requirements of commercial kitchens, bathrooms, food-processing plants, and hospitals, or any tiled environment where a sanitary cove base is desired.

Accessories for Schluter-DILEX-HKS include inside and outside corners, connectors, and end caps.

Installation

  1. Select Schluter-DILEX-HKS according to tile thickness.
  2. Using a notched trowel, apply thin-set mortar to areas where the perforated anchoring legs will be placed.
  3. Press the perforated anchoring legs of profile into the mortar.
  4. Note: Accessories are installed before tile using a permanently elastic, waterproof adhesive. Prior to application, any contact-inhibiting substances (e.g., grease, etc.) must be removed. The connectors should overlap the profile ends by at least 3/8" (10 mm).
  5. Trowel additional setting material over the perforated anchoring legs to ensure full coverage and support of the tile edges.
  6. Solidly embed the tiles and align flush with the top of the profile, leaving a joint of approx. 1/16" - 1/8" (1.5 mm - 3 mm) between the tile and the profile.
  7. Fill the joint completely with grout or setting material.

Material

Schluter-DILEX-HKS is available in stainless steel, with a soft, thermoplastic rubber movement zone that is attached to the profile via rigid rubber grip bars.

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

Schluter-DILEX-HKS is roll-formed using 304 (1.4301 = V2A) stainless steel, making the profiles especially suited for applications requiring resistance to high mechanical stresses, as well as chemical stresses (e.g., exposure to acids, alkalis, oils, greases, and solvents).

The thermoplastic rubber movement zone of Schluter-DILEX-HKS is resistant to most chemicals encountered in tiled environments.

Stainless steel is resistant to mold and bacteria, making the profiles suitable for use around food.

Maintenance

Schluter-DILEX-HKS requires no special maintenance and are resistant to mold and bacteria.

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.

The thermoplastic rubber movement zone of the Schluter-DILEX-HKS can be replaced.
