Contrary to popular belief, tiles and grout joints are not inherently waterproof, and must be installed in conjunction with a waterproofing system that effectively manages moisture and prevents mold growth.
The Schluter®-Shower System is an integrated family of products that together form a fully bonded, watertight assembly for tiled showers. The Schluter®-Shower System eliminates the risk of failures due to water and vapor penetration and dramatically reduces total installation time. From drains to shower benches to waterproofing pipe seals, Schluter®-Systems offers everything you need to ensure a dependable and watertight installation.
Waterproofing For Showers
A worry-free shower installation begins with proper waterproofing – everything that goes behind the tile that protects any elements that are subject to moisture. Schluter®-KERDI and KERDI-DS are pliable sheet-applied waterproofing membranes designed for the direct application of tile. The KERDI family is completed by accessories including seamless corners, waterproofing strips, and pipe and mixing valve seals, all designed to work together to complete the waterproofing process, protecting your shower or bathtub surround against mold and mildew damage.
Drains For Showers
Our classic Schluter®-KERDI-DRAIN can accommodate a wide variety of tile thicknesses and features an integrated bonding flange. Once the KERDI waterproofing membrane is adhered to the flange, it forms a waterproof connection at the top of the tile assembly. The KERDI-DRAIN can be customized with a wide range of grate options.
The Schluter®-KERDI-LINE is a low-profile linear drain that adds a lavish feel to your tiled shower and is the perfect drain for curbless showers. KERDI-LINE can be installed adjacent to walls or at the shower entrance and can be used in showers, wet rooms, steam rooms, or other places that require drainage. KERDI-LINE comes with a variety of grate designs, including a frameless tileable covering that practically disappears into the tile installation.
Prefabricated Substrates For Showers
Schluter®-Systems prefabricated substrates are the perfect choice for including mortar-free shower components in a tiled shower. The family includes shower trays, ramps, niches, curbs, and benches that all integrate easily with KERDI and KERDI-BOARD shower assemblies. Convenient and easy to install, these substrates are available in a range of sizes and shapes to suit any application.
