Application and Function
Schluter-DILEX-AHKA is an anodized aluminum, cove-shaped
profile for transitions between walls to be tiled and previously finished
floors. The profile features a single trapezoid-perforated anchoring leg
that is secured in the mortar bond coat and a dovetailed channel,
which can be bonded to floor surfaces using Schluter-KERDI-FIX,
epoxy resin, silicone, thin-set mortar, etc. A 3/8" (10 mm) radius cove
section forms the visible surface and prevents the accumulation of
dirt, making cleaning simple. DILEX-AHKA prevents surface water
penetration and meets the maintenance and hygienic requirements of
commercial kitchens, bathrooms, and food-processing plants, or any
tiled environment where a sanitary cove base is desired. DILEX-AHKA
integrates with the Schluter-DILEX-AHK and Schluter-RONDEC
profiles at 90° inside and outside vertical wall corners, respectively.
Accessories for DILEX-AHKA include 90° and 135° inside and
outside corners, and end caps.
