Schluter®-DILEX-AHKA is an anodized aluminum, cove-shaped profile for transitions between walls to be tiled and previously finished floors. The profile features a single trapezoid-perforated anchoring leg that is secured in the mortar bond coat and a dovetailed channel, which can be bonded to floor surfaces using Schluter®-KERDI-FIX, epoxy resin, silicone, thin-set mortar, etc. A 3/8" (10 mm) radius cove section forms the visible surface and prevents the accumulation of dirt, making cleaning simple. DILEX-AHKA prevents surface water penetration and meets the maintenance and hygienic requirements of commercial kitchens, bathrooms, and food-processing plants, or any tiled environment where a sanitary cove base is desired. DILEX-AHKA integrates with the DILEX-AHK and Schluter®-RONDEC profiles at 90° inside and outside vertical wall corners, respectively. Accessories for DILEX-AHKA include 90° and 135° inside and outside corners, and end caps.

1. Select profile according to tile thickness and format.

2. Using a notched trowel, apply thin-set mortar over the area where the trapezoid-perforated anchoring legs will be placed.

Note: If necessary, fill the dovetailed channel of DILEX-AHKA with KERDIFIX, epoxy resin, silicone, thin-set mortar or similar to adhere the profile to the existing floor surface.

3. Press the perforated anchoring leg(s) of the profile into the mortar.

Note: Install inside and outside corners, connectors, and end caps prior to setting tile. The use of thin-set mortar or similar may be required to achieve a proper fit.

4. Trowel additional thin-set mortar where the tiles are to be installed.

5. Solidly embed the tiles, ensuring full coverage and support of the tile edges, and align flush with the top of the profile, leaving a joint of approximately 1/16" – 1/8" (1.5 - 3 mm) between the tile and the profile.

6. Fill the joints completely with grout or setting material.

DILEX-AHKA 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.
