What are Schluter® Profiles? Profiles are a finishing edge of protection and allow movement for floors, walls, counters, and stair joints. They help protect tile edges from cracking or chipping, as well as, offer smooth transitions as they're available in many shapes, colors, and sizes.
Expansion and contraction can damage a tile. Schluter® Profiles provide transition solutions from adjacent surfaces and integrate movement joints that allow movement to be absorbed from expansion and contraction.
Why are Schluter® membranes important? They allows your subfloor to expand and contract separately from your tile making it less likely to crack. By helping maintain the integrity of the tile, they're also protecting your tile installation investment.
