Tiling a shower space or wet room in your home this season? Don't make the age-old mistake of tiling onto a bare wall and assuming your shower will be waterproof. You need to waterproof the surface yourself prior to tiling using a waterproofing membrane - and Schluter Systems makes one of the best! They also offer a variety of tiling trims to help add those finishing touches. They're a trusted manufacturer from Germany, and we are proud to stock a collection of their products!
Based in Germany, Schluter is a world-renowned manufacturer of tiling aids. Founded by a young ambitious tiler, the company set about developing and producing products to aid the installation and sustainability of tiles. Schluter also has its very own range of underfloor heating products – perfect for adding a warming luxury touch into your home, ready for those chilling evenings.
Reasons to Buy Schluter Systems
If you’re tiling a shower area, or you’re creating a wet room from scratch, it’s very important to make sure that the surface you’re tiling is rendered waterproof. Most people mistakenly assume that all tiles are waterproof. In fact, even when used with water resistant grout, a tiled wall or floor surface will never be completely water tight, which is why it’s important to have a waterproof lining ready to mount your tiles. That’s where Schluter Systems come in handy – it’s a range of waterproof membranes, and waterproof tape, for securing them in place, and joining sheets together. Follow the instructions, and you’ll create the perfect waterproof backdrop - ready to receive your stylish new tile choices.
Schluter also has an offering of tile trims. Often, wall or floor tiling displays can look bare or unfinished, without using tile trims to add that perfect edge. Schluter have a variety of trims to choose from. The Dilex range allows you to offer two tiles up against each other, with a slim strip down the middle. The Schiene range is designed to help tiles offered up to carpet, whilst the Trep Stair Nosings provide a gripping edge on tiled steps, to help prevent you from slipping.
Shluter’s Ditra Heat range is their very own variety of underfloor heating. Before you lay floor tiles, underfloor heating is something you should definitely consider. It costs less to buy and install than you might think, and it’s just more affordable to run than you might think, too. We have a selection of different kits to choose from in different sizes, so you can buy the exact square meterage for your project. In the kit, you get everything you need – including the uncoupling matting, the heating cable and the thermostat.
