Schluter®-DESIGNBASE-SL is a finishing profile used as an alternative to baseboards. It features a clean, finished look and is simply attached to the wall area with a suitable adhesive. The profile can be equipped with an optional sealing lip to protect the floor-to-wall transition from moisture and to reduce the transmission of impact sound. The profile is available in anodized aluminum, color-coated aluminum, and brushed stainless steel.

Schluter®-DESIGNBASE-SL is a finishing profile used as an alternative to baseboards. The profile is available in anodized aluminum, color-coated aluminum and stainless steel. It features a clean, finished look and is simply attached to the wall area with a suitable adhesive. The profile can be equipped with an optional sealing lip to protect the floor-to-wall transition from moisture and to reduce the transmission of impact sound.

1. DESIGNBASE-SL is applied to prepared walls using KERDI-FIX or other suitable adhesive. Prior to applying the adhesive, make sure that all surfaces are free from adhesion-inhibiting substances such as oil or grease.

2. Apply beads of adhesive to the back of the profile and press the profile into the wall, ensuring solid contact throughout. In the case of the stainless steel version, apply adhesive above and below the foam spacer; see illustration.

3. Aluminum accessories must be slid on the profiles during installation. Stainless steel accessories must be applied on top after the profile is installed. Install corners, connectors, and end caps using a permanently elastic waterproof adhesive (e.g., KERDI-FIX or silicone). Prior to application, any contact inhibiting substances (e.g. grease, etc.) must be removed.

4. Use a suitable cleaning agent to remove any excess adhesive from around the profile. Remove the protective foil. Note: The optional sealing lip is inserted into the profile prior to installation. The lip must be pressed firmly into the profile (from the front for the aluminum version and from the rear for the stainless steel version) so that the front edge of the sealing lip is flush with the profile.

DESIGNBASE-SL requires no special maintenance or care and is resistant to mold and fungi. Clean profile periodically using common neutral household cleaning agents. In the case of anodized aluminum and color-coated aluminum, do not use abrasive cleaning agents.

Stainless steel surfaces exposed to the environment or aggressive substances should be cleaned periodically using a neutral household cleaner. Regular cleaning maintains the neat appearance of stainless steel and reduces the risk of corrosion. All cleaning agents must be free of hydro-chloric, hydrofluoric acid, and chlorides. Stainless steel surfaces develop a sheen when treated with a chrome-polishing agent.
