Schluter®-BARA-RW is a stainless steel or color-coated aluminum, L-shaped edging profile for balconies and terraces. The profile provides a neat edge appearance while concealing and protecting the exposed edges of the setting bed against weathering and corrosion.

BARA-RW is suitable for the renovation of balconies and terraces where a tile covering is to be installed onto an existing substrate using the thin-bed method. The profile is solidly embedded into the thin-set mortar and integrated into the bonded waterproof layer.

BARA-RW is available with a special radius perforation “R” so that the profile can be used to form curves. Matching outside corners and connector pieces are available.

1. Select BARA-RW according to the thickness of the setting bed (i.e., the height of the floor assembly to be covered). Prefabricated corners and connectors are available for inside corners, outside corners, and butt joints. Abut the ends of the profile, leaving an approx. 3/16" (5 mm) joint. Cover the joint with the clip-on connector.

2. Using a notched trowel, apply thin-set mortar to the area where BARA-RW is to be placed. Press the perforated anchoring leg of the profile into the thin-set mortar and align.

3. To integrate the DITRA or DITRA-XL uncoupling membranes, abut the DITRA or DITRA-XL to the edge of the anchoring leg. The remaining joint between the uncoupling membrane and the profile is covered with KERDI-BAND; the KERDI-BAND must overlap the DITRA or DITRA-XL by a minimum 2" (5 cm) and cover the anchoring leg of the BARA-RW. Use KERDI-FIX to bond KERDI-BAND to the BARA-RW between the trapezoid perforations and the leading edge of the profile. Use Schluter-SET, Schluter-ALL-SET, Schluter-FAST-SET, or Schluter-SET, Schluter-ALL-SET, Schluter-FAST-SET, or unmodified thin-set mortar to bond KERDI-BAND to DITRA or DITRA-XL and the remaining area of the BARA-RW.

4. Tiles shall be laid in such a way that they extend approximately 3/4" (20 mm) beyond the edge of the profile. When using a trim profile at the edge area, the trim profile must extend beyond the BARA-RW by approximately 5/16" (8 mm).

BARA-RW requires no special maintenance or care. The coatings on the color-coated aluminum profile are colorfast and UV-resistant. Damaged surfaces shall be painted over. Stainless steel surfaces exposed to the environment or aggressive substances should be cleaned periodically using a mild household cleaner. Regular cleaning maintains the neat appearance of stainless steel and reduces the risk of corrosion. All cleaning agents must be free of hydrochloric acid, hydrofluoric acid, and chlorides. Stainless steel surfaces develop a sheen when treated with a chrome-polishing agent.
