Contrary to popular belief, tiles and grout joints are not inherently waterproof, and must be installed in conjunction with a waterproofing system that effectively manages moisture and prevents mold growth.
The Schluter®-Shower System is an integrated family of products that together form a fully bonded, watertight assembly for tiled showers. The Schluter®-Shower System eliminates the risk of failures due to water and vapor penetration and dramatically reduces total installation time. From drains to shower benches to waterproofing pipe seals, Schluter®-Systems offers everything you need to ensure a dependable and watertight installation.
The Schluter system assembly provides complete moisture management as it does not permit moisture to penetrate into the tile substrate, either the base or the walls, and allows the assembly to dry completely between uses. It is an integrated system that is simple and easy to install, which in turn prevents leaks and reduces the potential for efflorescence and mold growth in the system. Cost savings are realized through a faster, more efficient installation method and dramatically reduced call backs.
