Schluter®-DILEX-BTO

Schluter®-DILEX-BTO is an expansion joint profile that bridges expansion joints at floor/wall transitions and accommodates movement via the 1-3/16” (30 mm)-wide telescopic center section, which also forms the visible surface.

  • Designed to allow movement and reduce stress in large, tiled areas
  • Eliminates the need for caulking
  • Prevents cracking and delamination of tiles
  • Maintenance-free
  • Ideal for tile surfaces exposed to foot and vehicular traffic
  • May also be used in coverings cleaned with machines

Schluter®-DILEX-BTO, a variation of DILEX-BT, can be used to create expansion joints at floor/wall transitions. Schluter®-DILEX-BTO features trapezoid-perforated anchoring legs, made of anodized aluminum, which are secured in the mortar bond coat and provide edge protection for adjacent tiles against mechanical stresses. The anchoring legs can also be integrated into the mortar bed for other covering materials, such as carpeting or VCT. Therefore, the profile can move together with the respective covering assembly. The 1-3/16" (30 mm)- wide telescopic center section absorbs movements of +/- 7/32" (5 mm). The lateral pivot joints allow for the absorption of three-dimensional movement.

1. Select profile according to tile thickness and format.

2. Using a notched trowel, apply thin-set mortar over the area where the profile is to be placed. The profile must align directly with movement joints in the substrate below.

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

4. Trowel additional thin-set mortar over the perforated anchoring legs 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. The tile is set to the integrated joint spacer, which ensures a uniform joint of 1/16" - 1/8" (1.5 - 3 mm).

7. Fill the joint completely with grout or setting material; remove the protective foil from the profile.

8. The installation of the profile on wall and ceiling surfaces is essentially equivalent to floor applications.

DILEX-BTO requires no special maintenance or care and are resistant to mold and fungi. Clean profile using common household cleaning agents. In the case of anodized aluminum do not use abrasive cleaning agents.
