Schluter®-ECK-K 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-K is bonded to the outside corners of existing installations. As such, ECK-K can be installed as a repair so that existing damaged corners do not have to be replaced.

ECK-K 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-K 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).

The Schluter®-ECK-K profile requires no special maintenance or care and is resistant to mold and fungi. Clean profiles periodically using neutral cleaning agents. Stainless steel surfaces exposed to the environment or aggressive substances should be cleaned periodically using a neutral cleaner. Regular cleaning maintains the neat appearance of stainless steel and reduces the risk of corrosion. Avoid the use of strong acids (e.g. hydrochloric or hydrofluoric) and base/alkaline cleaners (e.g. bleach, ammonia, chlorides). Do not use abrasive cleaning agents and tools. Stainless steel surfaces develop a sheen when treated with a chrome-polishing agent.

1. ECK-K is applied to prepared wall corners using KERDI-FIX, silicone, or a similar adhesive. Prior to applying the adhesive, make sure that all surfaces are free from adhesion-inhibiting substances such as oil or grease. Apply a bead of adhesive to the back of each of the profile legs; then press the legs onto the wall covering, ensuring that the lateral edges lie flat and have solid contact throughout.

2. Use a suitable cleaning agent to remove any excess adhesive from around the profile legs.

3. Remove the protective foil.
