Schluter-SHOWER-KIT now ideal for tub tear-outs!

Plattsburgh, NY - January, 2006

The Schluter Shower System is the perfect solution for people who are planning a bathroom remodel. And now, by offering the Schluter-SHOWER-KIT with a 32’ x 60’ Schluter-KERDI-SHOWER-ST pre-fabricated shower tray, that solution has added flexibility.  

The Schluter-KERDI-SHOWER-ST tray has been available in both the 48’ x 48’ (square) and 32’ x 60’ (rectangular) sizes; but until now, only the square tray was being offered with the Schluter-SHOWER-KIT. Since an increasing number of tub tear-outs are being replaced with tiled showers, Schluter saw the need for more flexibility.  Now, installers can order a SHOWER-KIT to suit the job. 

Andrew Valickis of Ontario, Canada, recently gutted his second floor bathroom and replaced the existing tub with a Schluter Shower. The tub had not been used in years because of leaking problems.

“The Schluter system seemed like a great waterproofing system, and since that was the main reason the bathroom was being replaced, it seemed like the way to go," said Valickis.

The Schluter Shower System eliminates problems caused by water and vapor penetration in tiled showers. By placing Schluter-KERDI, a load-bearing, bonded, waterproof membrane, on top of the mortar bed or Schluter-KERDI-SHOWER-ST tray, and connecting it to the Schluter-KERDI-DRAIN, moisture is unable to saturate the mortar bed, thus eliminating efflorescence, fungus, and bacteria growth.

The Schluter-KERDI-SHOWER-KIT contains the integrated family of components necessary to create this seamless, maintenance-free, watertight shower assembly without a mortar bed. Included in the KIT are the Schluter-KERDI-SHOWER-ST tray, Schluter-KERDI-SHOWER-SC prefabricated curb, Schluter-KERDI 10M waterproofing membrane, Schluter-KERDI-BAND waterproofing strips for inside corners, Schluter-KERDI-DRAIN, and a step-by-step installation CD-ROM.

Since the early 1970’s, Schluter-Systems’ exclusive purpose has been to develop solutions for ceramic and stone tile installations. By combining state-of-the-art technology, practical experience, and attention to detail, our systems protect the integrity of every tile installation, allowing for the application of this ideal surface covering on virtually any surface.
