Schluter RENO-RAMP Tile Edge Protection / Floor Transition Profiles

Application and Function

Schluter-RENO-RAMP is designed to provide a smooth transition between tile coverings and floor coverings at lower elevations or finished concrete, particularly in commercial applications where wheel carts are used (e.g., bakeries, hospitals, etc.).

The profile is available in anodized aluminum. RENO-RAMP features a trapezoid-perforated anchoring leg, which is secured in the mortar bond coat beneath the tile, and a sloped transition surface that terminates at the height of the tile edge. The profile protects tile edges and provides a sloped surface to eliminate trip hazards and allow easy access for wheel carts. RENO-RAMP features an integrated joint spacer that establishes a defined joint cavity between the tile and the profile.

All sizes of RENO-RAMP, except sizes 9/16" (15 mm) and 3/4" (20 mm), are compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

Installation

Schluter RENO-RAMP Installation

  1. Select Schluter-RENO-RAMP according to tile thickness.
  2. Fill the cavity beneath the sloped section of the profile with thin-set mortar.
  3. Using a notched trowel, apply thin-set mortar to the area where profile is to be placed.
  4. Press the perforated anchoring leg of Schluter-RENO-RAMP into the mortar and align.
  5. Trowel additional thin-set mortar over the perforated anchoring leg to ensure full coverage and support of the tile edges.
  6. Solidly embed the tiles so that the tiled surface is flush with the top of the profile; the profile should not be higher than the tiled surface, but rather up to approx. 1/32" (1 mm) lower.
  7. Set the tile to the integrated joint spacer, which ensures a uniform joint of 1/16" - 1/8" (1.5 - 3 mm).
  8. Fill the joint completely with grout or setting material.
  9. Work with materials and tools that will not scratch or damage sensitive surfaces. Setting materials and grouts must be removed immediately, especially from anodized aluminum surfaces.

Material

Schluter-RENO-RAMP in anodized aluminum must be tested to verify its suitability if chemical stresses are anticipated. Cementitious materials, in conjunction with moisture, become alkaline. Since aluminum is sensitive to alkaline substances, exposure to the alkali (depending on the concentration and duration of exposure) may result in corrosion (aluminum hydroxide formation). Therefore, it is important to remove mortar or grout residue from visible surfaces. In addition, ensure that the profile is solidly embedded in the setting material and that all cavities are filled to prevent the collection of alkaline water. The anodized surface layer retains a uniform appearance during normal use, but must be protected against abrasion.

Maintenance

Schluter-RENO-RAMP requires no special maintenance or care and is resistant to mold and fungi. Clean profile using common household cleaning agents. Do not use abrasive cleaning agents. Damage to the anodized layer can be repaired by applying varnish.
