Schluter DILEX-AS Perimeter Movement Joint Profiles

  • Designed to provide movement joints in tile installations that are set against fixed building elements.

  • Available in PVC in Bright white only.

Application and Function

Perimeter joints are provided at restraining elements to accommodate movements attributable to changes in moisture, temperature, and loading. Schluter-DILEX perimeter movement joints are specifically designed to provide the flexible connection of tiled surfaces to fixed building elements (e.g., bathtubs, shower trays, countertops, and door and window frames.) and prevent sound bridges, thereby reducing sound transmission.

Schluter-DILEX-AS features a trapezoid-perforated anchoring leg, made of rigid PVC, which is secured in the mortar bond coat beneath the tiles, and a flexible joining leg with self-adhesive tape to bond the profile to fixed building elements.

The profile isolates the tile covering from the fixed building element and accommodates movement via the flexible joining leg, which also forms the visible surface.

The profile does not replace waterproofing. Required waterproofing must be installed prior to the installation of the profile.

DILEX-AS also prevents sound bridges, making it ideal for transitions in sound-rated floors. Accessories include matching end caps and inside corners.

Note: Suitable for tiles 1/4" to 1/2" (6 mm to 12 mm) thick.

  1. Thoroughly clean the contact area on adjoining fixtures where DILEX-AS will be positioned.
  2. Using a notched trowel, apply the thin-set mortar over the area where the trapezoid-perforated anchoring leg will be placed.
  3. Remove the paper from the self-adhesive tape. Apply Schluter®-KERDI-FIX or silicone sealant parallel and adjacent to self-adhesive tape. Press the profile with self-adhesive tape against the fixture in such a way that the perforated anchoring leg can also be pressed into the applied thin-set mortar.
  4. Install inside corners and end caps with KERDI-FIX or silicone prior to setting tiles.
  5. Trowel additional thin-set mortar over the perforated anchoring leg to ensure full coverage.
  6. A joint of approx. 1/16" - 1/8" (1.5 - 3 mm) should be left between the tile and the profile.
  7. Fill the joint completely with grout or setting material.


DILEX-AS is resistant to most chemicals encountered in tiled environments. In special cases, the suitability of a proposed type of profile must be verified based on the anticipated chemical, mechanical, and/or other stresses. Exceptions and special considerations are listed below: PVC profiles are made of pre-colored, rigid PVC that resists bending or scratching. The material is UV-resistant, though not permanently color-stable, in exterior applications.
