Schluter®-QUADEC/-K

Installation

Schluter-QUADEC

  1. Select Schluter-QUADEC according to tile thickness.
  2. Using a notched trowel, apply thin-set mortar to the area where profile is to be placed. If Schluter-QUADEC is to be used as edging for an outside wall corner, finish tiling one wall first; then trowel thin-set mortar over the corner area of the second wall.
  3. Press the perforated anchoring leg of profile into the mortar and align.
  4. Trowel additional thin-set mortar over the perforated anchoring leg to ensure full coverage and support of the tile edges.
  5. Solidly embed the tiles so that the tiled surface is flush with the top of the profile; the profile should not be higher than the tiled surface, but rather up to approx. 1/32” (1 mm) lower.
  6. Set the tile to the integrated joint spacer, which ensures a uniform joint of 1/16" - 1/8" (1.5 - 3 mm). With the stainless steel profiles, leave a space of approximately 1/16" - 1/8" (1.5 - 3 mm).
  7. Fill the joints completely with grout or setting material.
  8. Work with materials and tools that will not scratch or damage sensitive surfaces. Setting materials and grouts must be removed immediately, especially from anodized aluminum surfaces.

Note: The same corner piece can be used to produce a 90° inside corner and a 90° outside corner.

Schluter-QUADEC-K

  1. QUADEC-K may be used to cover assembly edges up to 1/2" (12.5 mm) thick.
  2. Fill the profile cavity with thin-set mortar.
  3. Using a notched trowel, apply thin-set mortar to the area where the profile is to be placed.
  4. Press the profile into the mortar and align. Leave a space of approximately 1/16”-1/8” (1.5 – 3 mm) between the profile and tile.
  5. Fill joints completely with grout or setting material.
  6. Work with materials and tools that will not scratch or damage sensitive surfaces. Setting materials must be removed immediately.

Note: QUADEC-K may also be adhered using KERDI-FIX. Matching inside/outside corners and connectors are available.

Corners/end caps are held in place with thin-set mortar. Fill the ends of the profile with thin-set mortar prior to inserting the accessories. Connectors are held in place with a friction fit. Insert the connector into the profile approximately half the length of the connector piece and connect the adjacent profile.
