Application and Function
Schluter-RENO-U is designed to provide a smooth transition between tile coverings and floor coverings at lower elevations or finished concrete.
The profile is available in stainless steel, solid brass, anodized aluminum and Tuscan color-coated aluminum. Schluter-RENO-U features a trapezoid-perforated anchoring leg, which is secured in the mortar bond coat beneath the tile, and a sloped surface (approximately 25º) that eliminates trip hazards and protects tile edges.
The leading edge of the profile abuts the lower surface covering, typically VCT. Schluter-RENO-U, in solid brass, anodized aluminum, and Tuscan color-coated aluminum features an integrated joint spacer that establishes a defined joint cavity between the tile and the profile. Schluter-RENO-U, in stainless steel, is roll-formed and does not feature an integrated joint spacer.
In installations where the leading edge abuts a lower surface covering, all sizes of Schluter-RENO-U, except the 3/4" (20 mm) and 11/16" (17.5 mm), are compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
In installations where the leading edge rests on top of the lower floor covering, the 3/4" (20 mm), 11/16" (17.5 mm), and 9/16" (15 mm) sizes are not ADA compliant.
