Schluter®-SHELF-E is a is a wall storage system available in brushed stainless steel or aluminum in a range of textured color-coated finishes including stone grey, cream, greige, bronze, matte black, and matte white. The shelves are 5/32″ (4 mm) -thick and feature designs coordinating with the KERDI-DRAIN and KERDI-LINE drain grates. They can be used in showers and other tiled wall applications (e.g., kitchens and baths). SHELF-E is suitable for corner installations and available in three different shapes. It features 3/32″ (2 mm) -thick tabs that allow for installation with the tile or in retrofit applications.

Schluter®-SHELF-E requires no special maintenance or care and is resistant to mold and fungi. Clean shelves periodically using neutral cleaning agents. Avoid the use of strong acids (e.g., hydrochloric, hydrofluoric) and bases/alkaline cleaners (e.g., bleach, ammonia, chlorides). Do not use abrasive cleaning agents and tools. Even stainless steel requires periodic cleaning, which will maintain a neat appearance and reduce the risk of corrosion. Stainless steel surfaces develop a sheen when treated with a chrome-polishing agent.

Corner - installation in conjunction with tile

1. Install the wall tile with joints 3/32″ (2 mm) wide or greater and clean the setting material from the joint where the SHELF-E will be installed.

2. Mark the tiles 3/8″ (10 mm) from the outside corners of the SHELF-E.

3. Install the grout, making sure to leave the area from the marks to the inside corner open.

4. After the grout has set, fill the open joint with sealant that is suitable for the application (e.g., silicone.)

5. Insert the SHELF-E and provide temporary support as required.

6. Seal the joint between the SHELF-E and the wall tile on the top and bottom surfaces with sealant that is suitable for the application (e.g., silicone.)

7. Allow the sealant to cure prior to using the SHELF-E.

Corner - retrofit

1. Determine the grout joint where the SHELF-E will be installed.

2. Mark the tiles where the SHELF-E tabs will be inserted.

3. Remove the grout from these locations using a suitable means (grout removal hand tool, oscillating tool, angle grinder, etc.). Take care not to damage the waterproofing layer behind the tile covering.

4. Fill the gaps in the joint with sealant that is suitable for the application (e.g., silicone.)

5. Insert the SHELF-E and provide temporary support as required.

6. Seal the joint between the SHELF-E and the wall tile on the top and bottom surfaces with sealant that is suitable for the application (e.g., silicone.)

7. Allow the sealant to cure prior to using the SHELF-E.
