Enjoy the new freedom of a barrier-free shower. Access steps and shower trays with high edges are a thing of the past as showers have become an integrated part of the bathroom environment, preferably with easily accessible floor-level designs. The system solutions of Schlüter®-Systems quickly turn ceramic tiles or natural stone into bathroom landscapes with all the matching details.
- Schlüter®-KERDI-LINE – Linear drainage channel
- Schlüter®-KERDI-SHOWER – Levelling boards and pre-formed sloped trays
- Schlüter®-SHOWERPROFILE – Wall transition and sloped profiles
Schlüter-Systems provides you with all the tools you need to create barrier free, floor level showers. Our systems are far more than the sum of their parts – each component is carefully matched and designed to ensure maximum installation reliability with simple tools and basic construction skills. The modular design offers the highest level of flexibility to customers and installers alike.
Bathrooms are exposed to significant levels of moisture. Splash water in the vicinity of showers and bath tubs and all water sources create water vapor that condenses on the walls and floor. Even minor mishaps such as an overflowing tub can release major amounts of moisture.
You can quickly and reliably install a waterproof bonded assembly with tile or natural stone coverings with:
- Schlüter®-DITRA 25
Schlüter®-KERDI-DRAIN by Schlüter®-Systems is a special floor drain assortment for the drainage of floor areas that allows for safe connection to KERDI/bonded waterproofing membranes.
Schlüter®-KERDI-SHOWER is an innovative system for the easy construction of angular or round floor-level showers with ceramic tiles. The slope is already built in.
Schlüter®-REMA is a system for concealing inspection openings in wall coverings made of tile. These magnetic openings can be used regardless of tile thickness and size and allows for adapting the inspection opening precisely to the appearance of the joints to maintain the overall aesthetic appearance of the tile design.

Schlüter Solutions Help to Create Statement Surrey Wetroom
A complete Schlüter-WETROOM system, along with a number of other Schlüter products, helped in the creation of a sophisticated wetroom at a luxury home in Esher, Surrey.
The owner was embarking upon a renovation and extension of his existing home. This included a refurbishment of the residence’s 4.8m x 2.7m master en-suite.
Enlisting the services of Quell Bathrooms, the client set out the fundamentals of what he wanted – bath, shower and double basin with storage. He then gave free reign to Managing Director of Quell, Vincent Pope, to come up with a few ideas from which the final design was selected.
The resulting wetroom utilised a number of different products from Schlüter-Systems, in order to ensure a sound finish for the client’s considerable investment.
AREA: Floor (drainage) and walls
ACTION: Minimalist drainage and complete waterproofing underlay
Integrated linear drain wetroom kit, Schlüter-KERDI-LINE-WRKL, was used to provide guaranteed waterproofing and drainage for the bathroom.
This kit consists of a waterproofing and sealing kit, shower boards, drainage channel and support plus a tile support grate.
The waterproofing and sealing kit contains Schlüter-KERDI waterproofing membrane, plus Schlüter-KERDI-KEBA sealing band, Schlüter-KERDI-KERECK pre-formed corner pieces and Schlüter-KERDI-COLL sealing adhesive. The KERDI membrane from the kit was used to waterproof the back wall and around the shower wall. The rest of the room was done out with Schlüter-KERDI-BOARD waterproof backerboard in 10mm thickness. All joints and junctions were sealed with the aforementioned set of sealing products.
The 800mm linear drainage channel was installed in an intermediate location, sloped to from both sides using the Schlüter-KERDI-SHOWER-L and Schlüter-KERDI-SHOWER-LS pre-sloped shower boards. The drain is designed to be tiled to in-line with the rest of the floor - in this case with wood-effect tiles - resulting in a discreet solution.
‘Since we started using Schlüter’s wetroom kits three years’ ago, we’ve had none of the problems we would get previously”, says Vincent, “We wouldn’t deviate from them now as they offer a comprehensive and trustworthy solution to prepping a wetroom”.
ACTION: Providing heated surfaces across the room
The timber floors of the project had already been insulated, so Vincent installed the original Schlüter-DITRA-HEAT-E electric underfloor heating system. “It’s great that you can use this system throughout the whole of a room, including the shower area”, says Vincent, “Often this isn’t an option with other systems”.
Grate News from Schlüter-Systems

Further enriching its drain portfolio, Schlüter-Systems showcased three new grate designs at Cersaie 2017, available soon across both its point and linear drains.
With so many options available in the way of tiles, Schlüter recognises that drains are an increasingly important element in creating a cohesive whole for a wetroom. The new designs for Schlüter®-KERDI-DRAIN and Schlüter®-KERDI-LINE —Floral, Curve and Pure—have been developed with current bathroom trends in mind, yet are versatile and neutral enough to stand the test of time.
-Floral: A geometric design with just the right amount of softness, Floral’s uniform pattern makes it equally suitable for wetrooms with a structured industrial or softly textured theme
-Curve: The simple, playful accents of the Curve design translate into grates that are the perfect complement to all manner of trends—from the organic feel of a natural retreat to the clean-cut lines of a reduced geometric wetroom
-Pure: Crisp and minimalist, Pure is a no-fuss, no-frills design that is great to have at hand for its timeless looks
The new grate designs will be available in Schlüter’s ever-popular brushed stainless steel finish. In addition, all of the new grate designs come equipped with a contour frame, making for easy cleaning and a sharp, sleek aesthetic. The linear variants will be available from late October and point variants from late November.
