Schluter-SCHIENE-STEP is a variation on Schluter's already successful SCHIENE line of profiles. The primary distinguishing feature is a descending lip on the outer edge of the profile designed to protect the edges of stairs and tiled steps. This SCHIENE-STEP SS80AE30 profile is designed to be used with thin-set and self-leveling mortar, minimising the influence of excess mortar on the finished look of the tile. The aluminum profile is engineered with durability and longevity in mind to give your tile the edge protection it needs for years to come, while the brilliant satin anodized aluminum finish adds a touch of sophistication to any tiled surface in your home.
Integrated Joint Spacer
Schluter-SCHIENE-STEP profiles feature a built-in joint spacer. This establishes a defined joint cavity between the tile and the profile, allowing mortar to expand more easily and reducing the chance of future stress fractures in the mortar or tile.
Pure Aluminum Construction
This profile is constructed from aluminum, giving it the durability it needs to last for many years without the worry of breakage or bending.
Trapezoidal Anchor Pattern
Schluter-SCHIENE-STEP profiles use an alternating trapezoidal pattern of anchoring holes for adherence to mortar. This pattern gives optimal movement stability in all directions.
Brilliant Satin Anodized Aluminum Finish
The satin anodized aluminum finish on the SS80AE30 profile gives your tile an extra touch of class and sophistication.
Descending Stair Lip
Schluter-SCHIENE-STEP profiles are designed to protect the edges of stairs with a descending lip on the outer edge of the profile. This metal lip protects from stress fractures, dropped items, and general wear and tear.
