Schlüter-Systems Ltd celebrated its 25th anniversary in 2018 alongside welcoming a number of new products and extensions to existing ranges.
2018 was an eventful year for Schlüter-Systems Ltd; as well as celebrating its 25th anniversary, the company welcomed a number of extensions to existing product ranges and some completely new solutions besides.
ELECTRIC UNDERFLOOR HEATING
Mid-way through 2018, Schlüter saw the arrival of a WiFi thermostat for its award-winning Schlüter®-DITRA-HEAT-E system. In conjunction with the unique Schlüter®-DITRA-HEAT-DUO matting, with its fast reacting heating and acoustic reduction fleece, this new announcement installed Schlüter’s electric underfloor heating solution as an unrivalled system.
Cersaie 2018 saw the release of two new shorter cable lengths for the system, specially designed for use within small zones, e.g. within a small shower or ensuite.
In early 2018, the slimline Schlüter®-FINEC profile became the latest recipient of the textured profile finishes of the Schlüter®-TRENDLINE range, which provides matches to a variety of the latest tile trends. Specifiers can now take advantage of near-invisible edge protection made even more discreet by coatings to match greige, concrete, wood and metal looks. Plus the introduction of a specialist pre-mitred corner piece set for the FINEC profile at Cersaie allows for neater and easier finishing.
In July, twelve new finishes became available for the long-serving Schlüter®-JOLLY wall profile, including copper, antique bronze, brass and nickel/titanium amongst others. These were joined in October by four new insert colours for some of the most popular Schlüter®-DILEX movement joints, as well as corner versions of the illuminated profile Schlüter®-LIPROTEC.
Schlüter’s wetroom solutions welcomed a brand-new range of accessories in the form of the stylish Schlüter®-SHELF. These metal shelves avoid the need for drilling through tile or stone coverings to fit them and are available in three different styles – corner, niche insert and conventional. The shelves feature the CURVE and FLORAL patterns of the designer point and linear drain grate released by Schlüter at Cersaie 2017, making for the perfect complement.
In a move to make the process of waterproofing even simpler, Schlüter introduced two wider rolls of the Schlüter®-KERDI-200 waterproofing membrane. These new 1.5 and 2m options reduce the amount of seaming and therefore installation time needed for a tanking system.
BALCONIES AND TERRACES
The Schlüter®-TROBA-LEVEL pedestal system debuted at Cersaie 2018 and provides a minutely adjustable loose-lay option for creating patio and balcony coverings. The stackable seven-part system can accommodate a slope of up to 10 per cent, broadening the possibilities for flow and transitions between different landscape elements.
