Schluter®-SHELF-N is a wall storage system available in brushed stainless steel or aluminum in a range of textured color-coated finishes including stone grey, cream, greige, bronze, matte black, and matte white. The shelves are 5/32″ (4 mm) -thick and feature designs coordinating with the KERDI-DRAIN and KERDI-LINE drain grates. They can be used in showers and other tiled wall applications (e.g., kitchens and baths). SHELF-N is a rectangular shelf that fits the prefabricated Schluter®-KERDI-BOARD-SN shower niche. It is installed in conjunction with the tile. Schluter®-SHELF-N is a rectangular shelf that fits the prefabricated Schluter®-KERDI-BOARD-SN shower niche.
Schluter®-SHELF-N requires no special maintenance or care and is resistant to mold and fungi. Clean shelves periodically using neutral cleaning agents. Avoid the use of strong acids (e.g., hydrochloric, hydrofluoric) and bases/alkaline cleaners (e.g., bleach, ammonia, chlorides). Do not use abrasive cleaning agents and tools. Even stainless steel requires periodic cleaning, which will maintain a neat appearance and reduce the risk of corrosion. Stainless steel surfaces develop a sheen when treated with a chrome-polishing agent.
1. Install the tile up to the joint where the SHELF-N will be placed.
2. Place the SHELF-N on the tiles with the rounded edges facing the inside of the niche.
3. After the grout has set, seal the joint between the SHELF-N and the wall tile on the top and bottom surfaces with sealant that is suitable for the application (e.g., silicone.)
4. Allow the sealant to cure prior to using the SHELF-N.
