An Idea For The Tile Industry Was Born
While working on an unusual bathroom project in Germany that included four thresholds, Mr. Schlüter came up with a solution to a common problem. Typically, exposed tile edges were left vulnerable to chipping and breaking. Mr. Schlüter concluded that a metal “L” angle, installed prior to placing tiles, would not only serve as edge protection, but also hide the unglazed edge and provide a straight and clean transition to adjoining surfaces. Hence in 1975, the Schluter-SCHIENE was born—the first in a long line of successful products and systems that have made Schluter-Systems the largest and most innovative supplier in the industry.
Schluter-Systems is committed to providing reliable ceramic and stone tile installation systems that not only solve problems but benefit the entire tile industry as well. As part of this commitment, we have invested considerable resources in testing our products to relevant industry standards. Such testing is performed both inhouse and by independent laboratories, including the Tile Council of North America (TCNA), the Terrazzo, Tile, and Marble Association of Canada (TTMAC), and the National Research Council in Ottawa, Canada. Where applicable, references to results and reports are made in our Schluter-Systems product literature.
