Schluter TREP-S Aluminum Anti-Slip Stair Nosing Profiles with Thermoplastic Rubber Insert

Schluter TREP S Aluminum Anti Slip Stair Nosing Profiles
  • Protects tiled stair edges and provides and easily visible, visually appealing, slip-resistant, 26 mm (1-1/32") wide stair nosing wear surface.
  • 2.5 m (8' 2-1/2") or 1.5 m (4' 11") Length
  • Aluminum support section, thermoplastic rubber insert; For tile 8, 10 or 12.5 mm (5/16", 3/8" or 1/2") thick

Application and Function

Schluter-TREP-S is designed to protect tiled stair edges and provide an easily visible, slip-resistant wear surface for durable, safe, and visually appealing stair-nosing design. It is suitable for use in areas subjected to heavy foot-traffic, such as offices or public buildings.

The profiles feature a trapezoid-perforated anchoring leg made of aluminum, which is secured in the mortar bond coat beneath the tile an supports a slip-resistant thermoplastic rubber wear surface.

The tread surface of Schluter-TREP-S is available in a variety of colors and can be replaced in case of damage or wear.

The tread surface meets or exceeds the static coefficient of friction recommendation in the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), for use in applications where the risk of slipping exists (United States Testing Company, test method ASTM C1028, 0.6 wet, 0.8 dry).

The leading edges of TREP-S have a 5/16" (8 mm) radius. Matching end caps are available.

Installation

  1. Select Schluter-TREP-S according to tile thickness.
  2. Install riser tile flush with the stair tread surface.
  3. Apply thin-set mortar along edge area above riser.
  4. Fill cavities on the underside of the profile with thin-set mortar.
  5. Press the trapezoid-perforated anchoring leg of the profile into the thin-set mortar, making sure the front edge of the profile is aligned flush with the riser tile. Full coverage must be obtained at the edge area to ensure support of the profile.
  6. Trowel additional thin-set mortar over the anchoring leg and the stair tread surface to ensure full coverage and support of the tile edges.
  7. Solidly embed the tread tiles so that the tiled surface is flush with the top of the profile.
  8. A joint of approx. 1/16" - 1/8" (1.5 mm - 3 mm) should be left between the tile and the profile.
  9. Fill joint completely with grout or setting material.

Material

Schluter-TREP-S has an aluminum support section.

In special cases, the suitability of a proposed type of material must be verified based on the anticipated chemical, mechanical, and/or other stresses.

Aluminum must be tested to verify suitability if chemical stresses are anticipated. 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.

Anodized Aluminum profiles feature an anodized layer that retains a uniform appearance during normal use. The surface, however, is susceptible to scratching and wear anmd may be damaged by grout or setting material. Therefore, these materials must be removed immediately. Otherwise, the description regarding aluminum applies.

Thermoplastic rubber inserts are highly resistant to chemicals and can withstand chemical stresses typically encountered in tile coverings. Thermoplastic elastomers can be connected by welding if profiles are joined to produce longer lengths.

Maintenance

Schluter-TREP-S requires no special maintenance and are resistant to mold and fungi. Clean profiles using common household cleaning agents.

Oxidation films on exposed aluminum can be removed by using a conventional polishing agent, but will form again.
