Linear drainage channels no longer ‘in the frame’

The ever increasing number of people looking to install a wet room at home now have even more choice when it comes to drainage options after Schlüter-Systems revealed the latest addition to its Schlüter®-KERDI-LINE range.

Now available is Schlüter®-KERDI-LINE-D, an aesthetically pleasing completely frameless linear drainage channel which is tileable. Like its other products in the Schlüter®-KERDI-LINE range, which are specifically designed for bonded waterproofing assemblies, it can be installed adjacent to walls or at midway points in showers, wet rooms, and other applications that require waterproofing and drainage.

Carl Stokes, Divisional Manager at Schlüter-Systems, comments, “Traditionally only found in hotels, spas and leisure facilities, wet rooms are now increasingly being installed in domestic locations too, as people look to add that extra touch of quality to their home. Schlüter®-KERDI-LINE-D provides customers with another aesthetically pleasing choice when it comes to drainage options, with the entire range being straightforward to install, therefore allowing for a wet room of the highest standard.”

Schlüter®-KERDI-LINE is the latest addition to the Schlüter®-KERDI system and along with Schlüter®-KERDI-SHOWER are proving the ideal solution for floor level showers which continue to become ever more popular. In this situation no product is simpler to use or easier and more reliable to install than Schlüter®-KERDI-SHOWER or Schlüter®-KERDI-LINE, modular systems for the construction of floor level showers with ceramic tiles and natural stone, which offers a particularly low assembly height of just 100mm.

Installing a wet room with Schlüter®-KERDI-SHOWER or Schlüter®-KERDI-LINE can create a more attractive space, can suit a range of contemporary designs, has the flexibility of not having to be a pre-determined size or shape and offers an ideal substrate for an excellent finish with tile or natural stone.

Its pre-sloped surface boards makes tiling straightforward and there are four different sizes available. These can be combined with waterproofing sets, other floor drains and optional use of base levelling panels meaning there are options available for a multitude of applications.

The elements that make up Schlüter®-KERDI-SHOWER can easily be adapted for the construction of circular shower designs due to pre-cut grooves. These are Schlüter®-KERDI-DRAIN-BASE, an especially low floor drain that is suitable for the installation of conventional barrier free shower designs or for combination with Schlüter®-KERDI-SHOWER floor elements; Schlüter®-KERDI-SHOWER-SK, a waterproofing set for floor level showers; and either Schlüter®- KERDI-SHOWER-T or Schlüter®-KERDI-SHOWER-TC which are sloped substrate boards for the direct installation of tiles in floor level showers

With over 7,000 products in its range, Schlüter-Systems has an essential role to play in every professional tiling project. To find out how it can help you to create more beautiful and longer lasting installations, please telephone 01530 813396 or visit the website at
