Schlüter-SCHIENE is an extruded profile that Finishes and protects the edges of Tiled coverings, as well as other surfacing materials. Applications include: transitions between different surface coverings (e.g. Tile to carpet); dado coverings; edge protection at expansion joints; decorative edging for stairs; as well as a Finishing profile for all types of surfaces, such as carpet, parquetry, laminates, natural stone coverings, or cold cured resin coverings. The profile's unique design combines specific Angle positions and material Wall thicknesses to transmit point loads into the substrate and surface covering, thus protecting the covering's edges against damage. The joint Spacer, which is integrated in profiles higher than 6 mm, establishes a defined joint cavity between the Tile and the profile. The anchoring leg of Schlüter-SCHIENE, in all material types, can be punched with a special radius perforation "R" so that the profile can be used to form curves.
