Schluter®-DILEX-EKSB featuring stainless steel anchoring legs, is available in 3/32" (2.5 mm), 3/16" (4.5 mm), and 1/4" (6 mm) heights to accommodate thinner floor coverings (e.g., VCT flooring or coatings). DILEX-EKSB is appropriate for residential to medium-duty commercial applications.

Note: The thermoplastic rubber movement zone for DILEX-EKSB is not replaceable.

1. Select Schluter®-DILEX-EKSB according to the floor covering thickness.

2. Apply a suitable adhesive over the area where the profile is to be placed. The adhesive must secure the profile and prevent the anchoring legs from telegraphing through the floor covering. Suitability of the adhesive may depend on the particular floor covering used; consult Schluter®-Systems for more information. The profile must align directly with movement joints in the substrate below.

3. Press the perforated anchoring legs of the DILEX-EKSB into the adhesive and align. Clean or degrease the anchoring legs as required.

4. Install floor covering material per manufacturer’s instructions so that the surface is flush with the top of the profile; the profile must not be higher than the surface, but rather up to approx. 1/32″ (1 mm) lower.

DILEX-EKSB 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 acid, hydrofluoric acid, and chlorides. Stainless steel surfaces develop a sheen when treated with a chrome-polishing agent.

Oxidation films on exposed solid brass or aluminum can be removed by using a conventional polishing agent, but will form again.

The thermoplastic rubber inserts in DILEX-EKSB are not replaceable.
