Schluter®-TREP-FL is a decorative stair-nosing profile with a protruding rounded edge that can be integrated into stairs covered with ceramic tile or natural stone. The profile protects the front edge of stairs and adds a high degree of safety by improving the visibility of the stair edges. The profile is available in stainless steel or anodized aluminum.

TREP-FL is suitable for residential applications, e.g., stairs not exposed to heavy traffic. Matching end caps are available.

1. Select profile according to the tile thickness and format.

2. Install riser tile flush with the stair tread surface.

3. Using a notched trowel, apply thin-set mortar along edge area above riser.

4. Fill cavities on the underside of the profile with thin-set mortar.

5. Press the trapezoid-perforated anchoring leg of the profile into the thin-set mortar, such that the front edge of the profile overlaps the riser tile. Full coverage must be obtained at the edge area to ensure support of the profile.

6. Trowel additional thin-set mortar over the perforated anchoring leg and the stair tread surface to ensure full coverage and support of the tile edges.

7. Solidly embed the tiles so that the tiled surface is flush with the top of the profile.

8. A joint of approx. 1/16" - 1/8" (1.5 - 3 mm) should be left between the tile and the profile.

9. Fill the joint completely with grout or setting material.

Schluter®-TREP-FL stair-nosing profile requires no special maintenance or care and is resistant to mold and fungi. Clean profiles using common household cleaning agents.

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.

In the case of anodized aluminum, do not use abrasive or strong alkaline cleaning agents.
