Application and Function
The profile features a trapezoid-perforated anchoring leg, which is secured in the mortar bond coat beneath the tile. The top of the profile features a symmetrically rounded edge with 1/4" (6 mm) radius, which matches the Schluter-RONDEC profile, while the vertical leg of the profile hides the exposed edge of the sub-assembly.
In addition, the profile effectively protects tiles in the edge area from mechanical and impact stresses. The integrated joint spacer establishes a defined joint cavity between the tile and the profile. Schluter-RONDEC-STEP is suitable for residential applications, e.g., stairs not exposed to heavy traffic, and counter tops.
Schluter-RONDEC-STEP is available in two different vertical leg lengths, 1-3/8" (35 mm) and 2-1/4" (57 mm), to cover the edge of the sub-assembly. The profile is available in anodized aluminum with various finishes to allow for decorative design and interesting accents. Matching corners for the RONDEC-STEP are available.
