Schluter BARA RW Angular Perimeter Finishing Profiles For Balconies And Terraces

Schluter BARA RW Angular Perimeter Finishing Profiles
  • Angular profile for finishing the exposed perimeters of balconies and terraces
  • 2.5 m (8' 2-1/2") Length; 15mm - 150mm (9/16" - 6") profile height
  • Available in stainless steel and color-coated aluminum (6 colors)

Application and Function

Schluter-BARA-RW is an L-shaped edging profile for balconies and terraces. The profile provides a neat edge appearance while concealing and protecting the exposed edges of the setting bed against weathering and corrosion.

Schluter-BARA-RW is solidly embedded into the thin-set mortar and integrated into the bonded waterproof layer.

Schluter-BARA-RW is suitable for the renovation of balconies and terraces where a tile covering is to be installed onto an existing substrate using the thin-bed method.

Installation

  1. Select Schluter-BARA-RW according to the thickness of the setting bed (i.e., the height of the floor assembly to be covered). Prefabricated corners and connectors are available for inside corners, outside corners, and butt joints. Abut the ends of the profile, leaving an approx. 3/16" (5 mm) joint. Cover the joint with the clip-on connector.
  2. The trapezoid-perforated anchoring leg of Schluter-BARA-RW is embedded in the thin-set mortar during tile installation. To achieve this, place the anchoring leg on a thin layer of mortar, align, and fix into position. Trowel over the anchoring leg to ensure full coverage and support of the tile.
  3. The Schluter-DITRA waterproofing membrane should abut the edge of the profile. The remaining joint between the Schluter-DITRA and the profile is covered with Schluter-KERDI-BAND. The KERDI-BAND sealing strip must be applied over a minimum 2" (5 cm) of the Schluter-DITRA and carried over the anchoring leg of Schluter-BARA-RW.
  4. Please note: Tiles shall be laid in such a way that they extend approximately 3/4" (20 mm) beyond the edge of the profile. When using a trim profile at the edge area, the trim profile must extend beyond the Schluter-BARA-RW by approximately 5/16" (8 mm).

Material

Schluter-BARA-RW is made of pre-treated (chromated), powder-coated aluminum. The profile is also available in stainless steel: Schluter-BARA-RWE.

The coating on the aluminum profile is color-stable, as well as UV- and weather-resistant. Visible surfaces should be protected against abrasion. Cementitious materials, in conjunction with moisture, become alkaline. Since aluminum is sensitive to alkaline substances, exposure to the alkali (depending on the concentration and duration of exposure) may result in corrosion (aluminum hydroxide formation). Therefore, it is important to remove mortar or grout residue from visible surfaces. In addition, ensure that the profile is solidly embedded in the setting material and that all cavities are filled to prevent the collection of alkaline water.

In special cases, the suitability of Schluter-BARA-RW must be verified based on the anticipated chemical, mechanical, and/or other stresses.
