The Schluter REMA Tile Access Panel Kit is the ideal system for creating concealed access panels in tiled wall coverings. The kit consists of four aluminium brackets with moulded casings containing magnets clamped to lateral, moveable guide shoes, and four ferromagnetic metal counter-plates.
The installation of the Schluter REMA Tile Access Panel Kit is independent of tile size and thickness and enables exact matching of the access panel to the overall joint design. Thus, panels that access electrical or plumbing components, for example, do not spoil the visual appearance of the tiles.
The Schluter REMA Tile Access Panel Kit is best suited for creating concealed access panels in wall coverings. If the access opening is substantially larger than 300mm x 300mm, it may be necessary to install two additional magnets. In special cases, the suitability of the Schluter REMA Tile Access Panel Kit must be verified, based on anticipated chemical, mechanical, and/or other stresses.
1. Adhere the Schluter REMA tile magnets with their perforated mounting plates to the back of the wall tile with tile adhesive. The magnets must fully extend over the edge of the tile into the opening.
2. Set the wall tiles with the adhered magnets at the edges of the opening so that four magnets protrude into the opening.
3. Use silicone to adhere the counter-plates to the back of the cover tile, matching the position of the magnets protruding into the opening.
3a. For larger openings that cover a space of several tiles, you can create a cover from the respective number of tiles by joining them together with another tile adhered to the back across all the tiles.
4. Once the silicone fixing the counter-plates has properly cured, set the cover panel in place and close the perimeter joint with silicone sealant compound in a matching colour to the grout used with the tiles or matching the tile colour itself.
