Schluter®-ECK-E is a stainless steel edging profile for 90° or 135° outside corners of tiled walls that offer excellent edge protection against mechanical stresses; for example, in industrial kitchens and hospitals. In addition, the profiles produce a radiused edge along the outside wall corner for a clean, decorative finish.

ECK-E features trapezoid-perforated anchoring legs that are secured in the mortar bond coat beneath the tile. ECK-E is especially suitable for areas where strict hygienic requirements must be met (e.g., hospitals, industrial kitchens, clean rooms, washrooms, and food-processing plants) and where aesthetic appeal is desired.

ECK-E can be combined with the cove-shaped stainless steel profiles Schluter®-DILEX-EHK (for inside wall corners and floor/wall transitions) and Schluter®-DILEX-HKS (for floor/wall transitions).

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

2. Using a notched trowel, apply thin-set mortar to the area where the profile is to be placed.

3. Press the perforated anchoring leg of the profile into the mortar and align.

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

5. Solidly embed the tiles so that the tiled surface is flush with the top of the profile; the profile should not be higher than the tiled surface, but rather up to approx. 1/32" (1 mm) lower.

6. Set the tile, leaving a space for grout of approximately 1/16" – 1/8" (1.5 - 3 mm).

7. Fill the joint completely with grout or setting material. Note: Remove the protective foil from the ECK-E immediately after grouting.

8. Work with materials and tools that will not scratch or damage sensitive surfaces. Setting materials must be removed immediately, especially from aluminum.

The Schluter®-ECK-E 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 and hydrofluoric acid and chlorides. Stainless steel surfaces develop a sheen when treated with a chrome-polishing agent.
