Schluter-BARA-RAKE is a color-coated aluminum edging profile with drainage holes and a drip lip. The profile finishes the exposed edges of floor assemblies on balconies and terraces that have an existing sloped screed. The holes in the vertical finishing leg ensure proper drainage from the DITRA-DRAIN uncoupling and thin-bed drainage membrane.

For complete installation details and warranty criteria for DITRA-DRAIN applications, please download the Schluter®-DITRA-DRAIN Data Sheet below.

1. Select the Schluter-BARA-RAKE height according to the combined Schluter-DITRA-DRAIN and tile thickness.

2. Using a notched trowel, apply thin-set mortar to the area where the BARA-RAKE is to be placed. Press the perforated anchoring leg of the profile into the thin-set mortar and align. If the Schluter-KERDI bonded waterproofing membrane will be used, install over the entire substrate and anchoring leg prior to DITRA-DRAIN. The KERDI is sealed to the anchoring leg using Schluter-KERDI-FIX.

3. Install DITRA-DRAIN over the anchoring leg, fleece side up. Make sure to continue the membrane below the joint spacer in the profile. Ensure the drainage space is not blocked, including during the tile installation.

4. The tiles may now be installed using the thin-bed method. Maintain a proper joint between the tiles and the vertical finishing leg of BARA-RAKE.

Notes: Preformed inside and outside corners and connectors are available. Abut the profile ends of BARA-RAKE, leaving a gap of approx. 3/16" (5 mm) to be covered with the clip on connectors.

BARA-RAKE requires no special maintenance or care. The coatings on the color-coated aluminum profile are colorfast and UV-resistant. Damaged surfaces may be painted.
