Schluter-Systems Sleek Shower Grates Enhance Bathroom Design
A series of new shower drain grates from Schluter-Systems features brand new designs that fit into a virtually invisible frame, resulting in a stylish and truly seamless look for shower floors. Three new grate designs are available for both the standard 4-in square point drains, and for Schluter’s linear drains in lengths from 20 to 48 in.
The Schluter-Kerdi-Drain-Style grates (for point drains) and Kerdi-Line-Style grates (for linear drains) were developed through an in-depth project between European and North American designers, who came together to combine unique design trends from both sides of the globe into three fashionable shower grates. The design objective was to tie-in to today’s latest tile trends, while providing distinctly different looks that will fit in with various bathroom decors. The drain grates do not contain any screw holes, creating an uninterrupted design that adds to the seamless appearance.
The new “Style” grates are designed to integrate with the Schluter-Kerdi-Drain point drain and Kerdi-Line linear drain. Both types of drain feature an integrated bonding flange that provides a secure connection to the Kerdi waterproofing membrane at the top of the assembly. This is an integral part of a sealed system that creates waterproof showers by protecting the substrate from water infiltration, hence preventing mold and mildew. Creating waterproof showers ensures their longevity, thus enhancing the sustainability aspects of these products.
The Kerdi-Line is a low profile linear drain that is ideal for barrier-free spaces and can be installed adjacent to walls or at intermediate locations in showers, wet rooms, and other applications that require waterproofing and drainage. All of the new Kerdi-Drain-Style and Kerdi-Line-Style grates and frames are made with brushed stainless steel. The interior of the grate assembly is smooth and free of protrusions for easy cleaning. These new designs will be available in spring of 2018.
