The Schluter DILEX BWB Movement Joint is a pre-fabricated movement profile for tiled coverings. The perforated anchoring legs, made of recycled rigid PVC, are secured in the tile adhesive beneath the tiles where they transmit occurring movements to the soft CPE movement zone (the upper movement zone is also the visible surface).
The Schluter DILEX BWB Movement Joint comes in 2.5 metre lengths and is available in a range of colours and height sizes.
The Schluter DILEX BWB Movement Joint features a movement zone that absorbs compressive, tensile, and shear stresses. It is 10 mm wide, matching common expansion joint widths, and is capable of accommodating relatively large movements.
In addition to residential applications, the Schluter DILEX BWB Movement Joint can also be installed in areas with medium traffic loads, such as offices or salesrooms. The profiles are also suited for exterior use, e.g. on facades or balconies.
The Schluter DILEX BWB Movement Joint consists of lateral perforated anchoring legs and side sections made of recycled rigid PVC, connected by a bottom and top movement zone made of soft CPE.
The material is resistant to most chemicals commonly encountered in tiled environments and is formulated to inhibit fungus and bacteria growth. In special cases, the suitability of a proposed type of material must be verified based on anticipated chemical, mechanical, and/or other stresses. The profile’s CPE movement zones are UV-stable and free of softening agents.
The Schluter DILEX BWB Movement Joint is a surface movement profile for tile coverings set in the thin bed method. The profile must align directly over the existing movement joint in the substrate. It is not suited for use above structural expansion joints.
