Application and Function
Schluter-DILEX-AKWS is a prefabricated, maintenance-free surface movement joint profile. It features trapezoid-perforated anchoring legs, made of aluminum, which are secured in the mortar bond coat and provide edge protection for adjacent tiles.
The profile separates individual fields in the tile covering and accommodates movement via the 1/4" (6 mm) -wide, soft PVC movement zone, which also forms the visible surface. The soft PVC movement zone is connected to the anchoring legs with rigid PVC grip bars and is not replaceable.
Schluter -DILEX-AKWS is suitable for both residential use and medium-duty commercial applications, such as areas subject to moderate mechanical stresses, including light vehicular traffic. In addition, DILEX-AKWS prevents sound bridges, making it ideal for use in sound-rated floors.
