Schluter-KERDI-DRAIN drain casings are formed using ABS, PVC, or stainless steel 304 (1.4301 = V2A). Plastic drain casings feature a polypropylene fleece webbing. The KERDI-DRAIN adaptor kits feature adaptor rings made of stainless steel 304 (1.4301 = V2A) with thermoplastic rubber gaskets and adaptor flanges made of stainless steel 304 (1.4301 = V2A) or ABS. Drain grates are available in stainless steel 304 (1.4301 = V2A) and anodized aluminum. The covering support is stainless steel 304 (1.4301 = V2A) with Schluter®-KERDI laminated on the surface.
Schluter-KERDI-DRAIN is suitable for use in residential and commercial applications, including areas subject to foot and wheelchair traffic, such as showers and wet rooms in homes, hotels, schools, healthcare facilities, etc.
Stainless steel can sustain high mechanical stresses and is particularly suitable for applications requiring resistance against chemicals and acids. However, even stainless steel is not resistant to all chemical stresses, and may be affected by hydrochloric and hydrofluoric acid or certain chloride and brine concentrations, which may be present in detergents or swimming pools. In special cases, the suitability of the selected floor drainage system must be verified based on the anticipated chemical, mechanical, and/or other stresses.
Anodized aluminum retains a uniform appearance during normal use. The surface, however, is susceptible to scratching and wear and may be damaged by grout or setting material. Therefore, these materials must be removed immediately.
Various configurations of KERDI-DRAIN are listed by UPC®, CSA, and NSF.
