Schluter-DILEX-AKWS is a surface joint profile used to separate fields of floor tile while providing structural stress relief. This aluminum profile is specifically designed for tension relief of tile fields, preventing damage due to movement over time. The rubber insert allows you to match the profile to the decorative themes of the room being tiled, while the durability of the aluminum sides ensures that the profile holds steadfast to foot traffic. The AKWS160SP profile has a sand pebble finish that adds clean, decorative lines to any room.
Rigid Aluminum Sides
The sides of this DILEX-AKWS profile use aluminum in their construction, protecting the sides of the tile they are installed next to and providing solid borders for the soft PVC movement zone in the middle.
Trapezoidal Anchor Pattern
Schluter-DILEX-AKWS profiles use an alternating trapezoidal pattern of anchoring holes for adherence to mortar. This pattern gives optimal movement stability in all directions.
Aluminum with Sand Pebble Finish
The aluminum with sand pebble finish on the AKWS160SP profile gives your tile an extra touch of class and sophistication.
