KERDI-LINE consists of a formed stainless steel channel body and grate assembly or covering support to which tile is applied. The channel body features a standard 2″ (50 mm) no-hub outlet and is attached to the pipe using an appropriate mechanical no-hub coupling. The simple connection to standard drain outlets makes KERDI-LINE suitable for new construction and renovation. KERDI-LINE is available with both center and off-set outlets. The offset outlet is located 8″ (20.3 cm) from the edge of the channel body and provides flexibility when obstacles (e.g., floor joists) are encountered during installation. The grate assembly can be seamlessly adjusted to the thickness of the ceramic tile or stone covering from 1/8″ to 1″ (3 to 25 mm). The covering support is placed flush with the top of the channel body and can therefore accommodate any thickness tile covering.
KERDI-LINE includes a corresponding polystyrene foam channel support. The perimeter of the channel body consists of a bonding flange laminated with a collar made of KERDI. It ensures a simple and secure connection to the bonded waterproofing assembly, both in the floor area and on adjacent walls.
The grate assembly consists of a brushed stainless steel frame and two design grate options. Option A is a closed-design, brushed stainless steel grate. Option B is a brushed stainless grate with square perforations. Option B is also available with a locking mechanism (3/4″ – 19 mm frame only) for applications where tamper resistance is desired or required (e.g., healthcare and education facilities, etc.).
The covering support D is a stainless steel plate with KERDI laminated on the surface to allow for bonding of ceramic or stone tile, which creates a virtually invisible drainage line. KERDI-LINE is available in channel lengths from 20″ to 48″ in 4″ (10 cm) increments. Please note that the bonding flange extends approximately 1″ (2.5 cm) beyond the channel on all sides.
