Schluter®-SCHIENE-STEP

Schluter®-SCHIENE-STEP is a finishing and edging profile for ceramic tile and natural stone installations on countertops, stairs, and tile-over-tile applications on walls. The top of the profile features a vertical wall section that finishes and protects the tile from damage, while the vertical leg covers the edge of the sub-assembly, top of the riser, or existing wall edge.

  • Prevents tile edges from chipping
  • The ribbed vertical leg covers the edge of the countertop sub-assembly or the top of the stair riser
  • Integrated joint spacer establishes a defined joint cavity between the tile and the profile (anodized aluminum version only)
  • The “T” configuration of the profile effectively finishes and protects the edges of both the old and new tile on walls
  • Ideal for residential applications
  • 90° and 135° inside and outside corners, connectors, and end caps available in brushed stainless steel only
  • Available in anodized aluminum and brushed stainless steel

Schluter®-SCHIENE-STEP is a finishing and edging profile for ceramic tile and natural stone installations on countertops, stairs, and tile over tile applications on walls. The profile features a trapezoid-perforated anchoring leg, which is secured in the mortar bond coat beneath the tile. The top of the profile features a vertical wall section that finishes and protects the tile from damage, while the vertical leg covers the edge of the subassembly, top of the riser, or existing wall tile edge.

SCHIENE-STEP is available in anodized aluminum and brushed stainless steel versions, which have different shapes and intended uses. The stainless steel version is available in three vertical leg lengths: 1-1/2" (39 mm) for countertops, 1-3/16" (30 mm) for stairs, and 7/16" (11 mm) for tile over tile applications. Matching inside and outside corners and connectors are available, depending on the vertical leg length. The anodized aluminum version is intended for residential stair applications (stairs not exposed to heavy traffic). It is available in two vertical leg lengths, 1-3/16" (30 mm) and 1-1/2" (39 mm),to cover the edge of the sub-assembly. The integrated joint spacer establishes a defined joint cavity between the tile and the profile. Accessories are not available for the anodized aluminum version.

1. Select profile according to tile thickness and sub-assembly thickness.

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

3. Press the perforated anchoring leg of the profile into the thin-set mortar and align.

4. Trowel additional thin-set mortar over the perforated anchoring leg 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 approximately 1/32" (1 mm) lower.

6. Set the tile to the integrated joint spacer, which ensures a uniform joint of 1/16" – 1/8" (1.5 – 3 mm). For SCHIENE-STEP in stainless steel, leave a space of approximately 1/16" - 1/8" (1.5 - 3 mm).

7. Fill the joint completely with grout or setting material.

8. Work with materials and tools that will not scratch or damage sensitive surfaces. Setting materials must be removed immediately, especially from aluminum.

Note: For installation of SCHIENE-STEP corners and connectors install using KERDI-FIX, silicone,or similar adhesive. Prior to application, any contact-inhibiting substances (e.g., grease,etc.) must be removed. The accessories should overlap the profiles by at least 3/8” (10 mm).

The accessories must be slid on the profiles during profiles installation (cannot be placed over the profiles after installation).

Schluter®SCHIENE-STEP requires no special maintenance or care and is resistant to mold and fungi. Clean the 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 and hydrofluoric acid and chlorides. Stainless steel surfaces develop a sheen when treated with a chrome-polishing agent.

In the case of anodized aluminum, do not use abrasive or strong alkaline cleaning agents.
