Schluter®-TREP-EFK is designed to provide an easily visible, slip-resistant wear surface for durable, safe, and visually appealing stair tread design. The profile is made of attractive and durable stainless steel, making it particularly suited for areas subjected to heavy foot traffic, such as offices or public buildings.

The profile is typically adhered within a recessed area on stair treads covered with natural stone or constructed of concrete.  It may also be applied to the surface of existing stair treads covered with ceramic tile or natural stone or constructed of concrete.

The Schluter®-TREP-EFK stair profile requires no special maintenance or care and is resistant to mold and fungi. Clean profile 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 and hydrofluoric acid and chlorides. Stainless steel surfaces develop a sheen when treated with a chrome-polishing agent.

1. TREP-EFK may be adhered to a recessed area in the stair tread or on the surface of the tread.

2. Clean the stair tread and repair damaged areas if applicable.

3. Clean or degrease the underside of the profile.

4. Adhere the profile by fully embedding it into a suitable adhesive (e.g., epoxy resin or KERDI-FIX, depending on the substrate).

Note: The upper profile edge of TREP-EFK is approximately 3/32" (2 mm) higher than the stair covering if not installed within a recessed area.
