Schluter-DILEX perimeter movement joints are specifically designed to provide the flexible connection of tiled surfaces to fixed building elements (e.g., bathtubs, shower trays, countertops, and door and window frames.) and prevent sound bridges, thereby reducing sound transmission. Perimeter joints are provided at restraining elements to accommodate movements attributable to changes in moisture, temperature, and loading.
Application and Function
Schluter-DILEX-AS features a trapezoid-perforated anchoring leg, made of rigid PVC, which is secured in the mortar bond coat beneath the tiles, and a flexible joining leg with self-adhesive tape to bond the profile to fixed building elements.
The profile isolates the tile covering from the fixed building element and accommodates movement via the flexible joining leg, which also forms the visible surface.
The profile does not replace waterproofing. Required waterproofing must be installed prior to the installation of the profile.
DILEX-AS also prevents sound bridges, making it ideal for transitions in sound-rated floors. Accessories include matching end caps and inside corners.
Note: Suitable for tiles 1/4" to 1/2" (6 mm to 12 mm) thick.
Schluter-DILEX-AS consists of a trapezoid-perforated anchoring leg made of rigid PVC, connected to a flexible joining leg made of soft PVC that features a self-adhesive tape.
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-AS is resistant to most chemicals encountered in tiled environments.
Schluter-DILEX-AS requires no special maintenance and is resistant to mold and bacteria. Clean profile using common household cleaning agents.
