Profile plus light equals LIPROTEC

Sky blue, daylight white, warm orange red, direct lighting or indirect lighting, starting now, you can set the accents, where and how you like it, based on high-quality aluminium profiles from the market leader in tile profiles.

All profiles can be easily integrated into the wall.

And this is how it is done:

The LED strips are encased with full encapsulation or so-called shrink tubing and are then glued either directly into the profile or the diffuser (depending on the type of profile and the desired lighting effect).

The diffusers are simply clipped onto the profile.

Just as it is done when tiling, the profiles are fixed with tile adhesive or with Schlüter®-KERDI-FIX installation adhesive.

Extensive preparation work is not necessary. And with our installation accessories, even the cabling is a breeze.

Good to know!

Our LED strips are completely encapsulated and therefore highly resilient. The best thing is, that the LED strips can be exchanged even once installed.

Questions and answers

  • Can Schlüter®-LIPROTEC be installed only in combination with tiles?

    Schlüter®-LIPROTEC is as flexible and individual as you are.

    Whether you want to emphasise decorative elements, borders, pictures or mirrors, whether you want to put more emphasis on a simple shadow joint or set accents with indirect lighting ... Schlüter®-LIPROTEC is matched superbly to ceramics. However, it can also be installed with the most diverse of wall coverings.

  • What do I do when one of the little lights fails?

    LED diodes are extremely low-maintenance. In addition, they consume very little energy and are efficient.  Our brand-name LED products last for 30,000 to 40,000 hours. With an average operation of three hours daily, that translates into up to 36 years of operation.

    In addition, LIPROTEC profiles are constructed such that the luminaires can be exchanged even after having been installed.

  • Is it correct, that the use of luminaires is forbidden around the shower and the bathtub?

    Particularly strict safety regulations apply in bathrooms and all other rooms, in which the elements of electricity and water meet each other: For the areas around the bathtub and the shower and also in the vicinity of the washbasin, luminaires must comply with the protection type IP 64 (protected against spray water). If there is any potential of jet water, for example through water jets for massage, then at least compliance with the IP 65 protection type standard (protection against jet water) is required. The protection type provides the suitability of electrical devices (for example, luminaires and installation material for various environmental conditions.
     
    The LIPROTEC system meets all requirements. Our LED strips have been encapsulated to comply with IP 65. This means that LED strips and profiles can be utilised in the bathroom and in other rooms - in which the so-called environmental moisture could meet the LED technology - without any problems.
    Only the power supply units, the receiver and switches must be placed outside of Zones 1 and 2.
