Schluter® RENO-U - Edge-Protection Profile for Abutting Tile to Lower Transitions
Schluter®-RENO-U is designed to provide a smooth transition between tile coverings and floor coverings at lower elevations or finished concrete. The profile is available in stainless steel, solid brass and anodized aluminum. RENO-U features a trapezoid-perforated anchoring leg, which is secured in the mortar bond coat beneath the tile, and a sloped surface (approximately 25°) that eliminates trip hazards and protects tile edges. The leading edge of the profile abuts the lower surface covering, typically VCT. RENO-U, in aluminum, features an integrated joint spacer that establishes a defined joint cavity between the tile and the profile. In installations where the leading edge abuts a lower surface covering, all sizes of RENO-U, except the 3/4" (20 mm) and 11/16" (17.5 mm), are compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). In installations where the leading edge rests on top of the lower floor covering (e.g., finished concrete), the 3/4" (20 mm), 11/16" (17.5 mm), and 9/16" (15 mm) sizes are not ADA-compliant.
Note: When using Schluter® uncoupling membranes with RENO-U profiles, factor in the thickness of the membrane over the anchoring leg when selecting the profile height.
