Schluter®-KERDI-LINE is a low profile linear shower drain specifically designed for bonded waterproofing assemblies. KERDI-LINE can be installed adjacent to walls or at intermediate locations. The floor can be sloped on a single plane to KERDI-LINE, which enables the use of large-format tiles and creates interesting design opportunities.
KERDI-LINE consists of a formed stainless steel channel body and grate assembly or covering support to which tile is applied. The channel body features a standard 2″ (50 mm) no-hub outlet and is attached to the pipe using an appropriate mechanical (e.g., flexible or no-hub) coupling. The simple connection to standard drain outlets makes KERDI-LINE suitable for new construction and renovation. KERDI-LINE is available with both center and off-set outlets. The off-set outlet is located 8″ (20.3 cm) from the edge of the channel body and provides flexibility when obstacles (e.g., floor joists) are encountered during installation. KERDILINE includes a corresponding polystyrene foam channel support to set the drain elevation to the corresponding KERDI-SHOWER-LT/-LTS shower trays. The perimeter of the channel body consists of a bonding flange laminated with a collar made of KERDI. It ensures a simple and secure connection to the bonded waterproofing assembly, both in the floor area and on adjacent walls. KERDI-LINE is available in channel lengths from 20″ to 72″ (50 cm to 180 cm) in 4″ (10 cm) increments. The bonding flange extends approximately 1″ (2.5 cm) beyond the channel on all sides.
The KERDI-LINE grate assembly consists of a stainless steel frame that can be seamlessly adjusted to the thickness of the ceramic tile or stone covering – 1/8″ to 1″ (3 mm to 25 mm) for standard grate assemblies and 1/4″ to 23/32″ (6 mm to 18 mm) for KERDI-LINE-STYLE grate assemblies – and stainless steel grates that are placed within the frame. The standard grate assembly frame features a 3/8″ (10 mm) wide reveal after installation and can be combined with one of two grate options: SOLID (A) or SQUARE (B). Each standard assembly is available in a brushed, chrome, or textured color-coated finish. The SQUARE (B) option is also available with a locking mechanism (brushed stainless steel, 3/4″ – 19 mm frame only) for applications where tamper resistance is desired or required (e.g., healthcare and education facilities, etc.). The KERDI-LINE-STYLE grate assembly frame features a minimal reveal after installation and can be combined with one of three grate options: FLORAL (E), CURVE (F), or PURE (G). Each STYLE assembly is available in a brushed finish. The TILE grate (D) consists of a frameless, tileable covering support that is placed flush with the top of the channel body and can therefore accommodate any thickness tile covering. If KERDI-LINE is placed at shower entrance, it is recommended that grate assembly A or the TILE grate is chosen and that the drainage openings span the maximum width of the entrance to limit potential overflow; secondary drainage (e.g., KERDI-DRAIN-F) may be required in the drying area.
KERDI-LINE requires no special maintenance and is resistant to mold and fungi. The grate may be removed to clean the drain housing and the drain pipes.
Clean the grates and profiles using common household cleaning agents. Stainless steel exposed to the environment or aggressive substances should be cleaned periodically using a mild household cleaner. Regular cleaning maintains the neat appearance of stainless steel and reduces the risk of corrosion. All cleaning agents must be free of hydrochloric acid, hydrofluoric acid, and chlorides. Stainless steel surfaces develop a sheen when treated with a chrome-polishing agent. Do not use abrasive or alkaline cleaning agents.
