Your kitchen counter is a work surface that is used daily, and should be truly functional and easy to maintain. Tiled countertops provide the ultimate in durability and practicality, and come at a fraction of the cost of marble, granite, or quartz countertops.
The Schluter®-Countertop System provides a simple way to build your tile countertop, without the need for ceramic tile trim pieces. Specialized profiles and corner pieces produce stunning sink rails, elegant and easy-to-clean countertop backsplash transitions, and practical tiled-under sinks. Under the tile, the Schluter®-KERDI-BOARD substrate is lightweight and dimensionally stable, and provides an ideal support for the tile covering that is simple to install.
Since KERDI-BOARD is waterproof, the only extra step necessary is to seal the seams and wall-to-countertop connections. This is easily accomplished by applying KERDI-BAND to these areas using an unmodified thin-set mortar. The result is a waterproof installation that will not suffer damage in the event of an unexpected water leak.
Schluter®-RONDEC-CT enhances the look and utility of tile countertops. Hard-to-find ceramic trim pieces are a thing of the past with the sleek and resilient rail edging RONDEC-CT profile. The double-rail edging of the RONDEC-CT profile allows for an inset of tile to match the counter tile or act as an accent. For a modern, solid style try the RONDEC-STEP.
The matching rounded edge and finish of the RONDEC profile completes the unit, framing the backsplash tile and adding to a cohesive installation.
Excessive grout lines are replaced by hygienic, easy-to-clean, cove-shaped DILEX-AHK profiles at counter-to-wall transitions.
