Warwickshire County Cricket Club, Edgbaston

Project: Warwickshire County Cricket Club, Edgbaston

The England cricket team are set to play three of the world’s best teams at Edgbaston this summer but whilst fans hope for magic on the pitch, products from Schlüter-Systems, the number one supplier of essential tiling protection will be ensuring its tile installations are equally as special off it.

Products from the Schlüter®-SCHIENE and Schlüter®-RENO range of finishing threshold profiles along with movement joints from the Schlüter®-DILEX series were recently installed around the stadium entrance, toilets and players changing rooms, offering the perfect protection and ensuring England players and fans should be able to celebrate victories against the West Indies, Australia and South Africa without worrying that the tiling beneath their feet will disappoint.

Carl Stokes, Divisional Manager at Schlüter-Systems, comments, “Thousands of cricket fans will be able to watch the England team at Edgbaston this summer but what they won’t know is that our products have ensured the perfect delivery when it comes to tile protection. Using our extensive range of movement joints, edging and transition profiles and decorative tile trims provides customers with a whole host of different options when it comes to creating the perfect, long-lasting tile installation and ensures there will be no sudden collapses.”

He continued, “Much like the greatest all-rounders in cricket can perform well in all aspects of the game, the Schlüter-Systems portfolio is effective in a whole range of different installations, allowing our customers to edge ahead, rather than edge behind with their tiling project. No matter the size of the job, distributors and retailers can be on the front foot and offer tried and tested solutions to their customers.”

He added, “With some of our market leading products also installed at Number One Court prior to last year’s Wimbledon Championships, it’s really pleasing that Schlüter-Systems is being chosen to protect some of the best sporting facilities in the country.”

Rob Meechan, from Birmingham Tile & Mosaic, which installed these products, added, “Products from Schlüter-Systems are amongst the most regular we use in projects and we find them particularly straightforward to install and very effective. They are the market leader and we think it’s only right to be using the very best products in our work.”

Schlüter®-SCHIENE is the original finishing threshold profile and offers the perfect protection. It finishes tiled surfaces and protects the outer edges of ceramic and natural stone floor coverings from mechanical impact. The threshold strips of the Schlüter®-RENO series create a smooth transition before adjoining floor coverings at different heights, protecting the exposed tile edge. All profiles are available in a range of heights and finishes such as brass, aluminium, anodised aluminium, stainless steel and brushed stainless steel and contribute to the aesthetic and lasting appearance of the floor covering.

Movement joints from the Schlüter®-DILEX range offer secure edge protection and maintenance free solutions for surfaces exposed to continuous pedestrian and vehicular traffic. All profiles are installed at the same time as the tile covering and a wide variety in various material combinations are available, depending on the mechanical or chemical stresses expected on the covering.

Schlüter-Systems also supplies a range of tile trim profiles which are designed to provide a decorative finish and protect exposed tile edges for wall corners, skirting and tiled edges. The products in the Schlüter®-JOLLY, Schlüter®-RONDEC, and Schlüter®-QUADEC and Schlüter®-ECK ranges create not just a decorative finish, but also a highly durable finish. With numerous material, heights, colour and finish options available, the sky really is the limit when it comes to creativity with these profiles.
