Schluter SCHIENE BASIC M Brass Tile Trim is designed to provide protective and decorative edging for tile coverings. Typical applications include edge protection where tile is bordered by carpet, at expansion joints, or as a decorative edging for stairs. This trim differs from the standard SCHIENE tile trim in that it does not incorporate a grout joint spacer, so is therefore named a ‘basic’ version of the trim.
Schluter SCHIENE BASIC M Brass Tile Trim is available in the following internal height sizes: 8mm, 10mm, 12.5mm. All sizes come in lengths of 2.5 metres.
Schluter SCHIENE BASIC M Brass Tile Trim features a trapezoid perforated anchoring leg, which is secured in the mortar bond coat beneath the tile, and a vertical wall section that transfers point loads to the substrate and surface covering while protecting tile edges from damage. The trapezoid shape results in a very strong mechanical fixing for the anchoring leg of the profile within the adhesive bed.
Schluter SCHIENE BASIC M Brass Tile Trim prevents tiles from chipping due to mechanical stress or impact, and is ideal for creating transitions on floors, where the tile installation is bordered by carpet or wood flooring.
This trim is made from solid brass. Please note: Minor manufacturing flaws are unavoidable on the untreated surface of the trim, so it may come with minor scratches/marks. These become much less noticeable over time as the surface oxidises and can be removed/improved by using a metal polish such as Schluter CLEAN CP Trim Polish. Brass tile trim is ideal for sustaining high levels of mechanical stress, e.g. as edge protection for movement joints in coverings exposed to industrial traffic. Brass tile trim is resistant to most chemicals used in tiled environments. Solid brass that is exposed to air will oxidise, resulting in a natural patina. If exposed to moisture or aggressive substances, heavy oxidation and spotting may occur.
