Tile Tub Surround - System Components

Protect against water and vapor penetration

Tiled tub surrounds are beautiful, durable, and hygenic when designed and installed properly.  Proper waterproofing is essential in order to eliminate the potential for leaks, mold growth, and damage to surrounding building materials.

Schluter-KERDI-FIX is a single-component sealing and bonding compound with a silane-modified polymer base.  It is used to provide a watertight seal between the KERDI-BAND and tub and to treat protrusions through the KERDI membrane (e.g., mixing valve, tub spout, etc.).

Provide beautiful, hygienic, maintenance-free inside wall corners

Schluter-DILEX-EKE is a prefabricated movement joint profile that provides a straight, uniform, discreet joint at inside wall corners, eliminating the need for sealant or caulk joints, which must be replaced over time.  Available in a variety of colors to match the grout.

Protect and finish tile edges

Ceramic and stone tiles are durable and easy to maintain.  However, the lack of trim pieces, such as bullnose or quarter round in many tile lines, limits designers' options.  Schluter-Systems offers various finishing and edge-protection profiles for outside wall corners, tile bases, and other tiled edges to create a beautiful, durable installation.

Schluter-JOLLY, -SCHIENE, -RONDEC, and -QUADEC are finishing and edging profiles that are used for outside corners and other tiled edges.  JOLLY and SCHIENE provide a straight edge finish, RONDEC a rounded edge, and QUADEC a square edge.  Matching inside and outside corners (90°) are available for RONDEC and QUADEC.
