Schlüter-DILEX-BWS is a pre-fabricated movement profile for tiled coverings. The perforated anchoring legs, made of recycled rigid PVC, are secured in the tile adhesive beneath the tiles where they transmit occurring movements to the soft CPE movement zone (the upper movement zone is also the visible surface).
The movement zone absorbs compressive, tensile, and shear stresses and is only 5 mm wide, matching common grout joint widths. Consequently, the smaller width absorbs relatively limited movements; this should be taken into account when evaluating the requirements for a specific application. Schlüter-DILEX-BWS is particularly suited as a movement joint for tile coverings installed over Schlüter-DITRA 25.
If larger movements within the covering are anticipated, installation of Schlüter-DILEX-BWB, with a 10 mm movement zone, is recommended.
Schlüter-DILEX-BWS is suitable for both residential use and medium-duty commercial applications such as offices or stores with light mechanical loads (e.g. shopping trollies, etc.). The profile is also suited for exterior use.
