Installers, designers and homeowners know the issue too well. If accessories such as shelves and niches need to be added at any stage after the initial framework build, drilling through the tile and stone will damage both the covering and the waterproofing behind.

Schlüter Systems offers a portfolio of shelves and niches which eliminate the need for drilling; while providing valuable, stylish storage.  Whether they are installed along a wall, in a corner or niche, the practical shelves are available in hundreds of design and colour combinations and include options that can be retrofitted.

The Schlüter-SHELF collection includes several shapes to fit in a corner as well as an option that can be installed anywhere within the wall area if it is in line with the grout joint. Installation is easy as no drilling is required, and the shelf simply integrates into the grout joint with the use of a sealant. A benefit of choosing the corner options is the versatility that comes with it – the shelves can be retrofitted, creating an effortless update without having to make big changes to the bathroom.

An example is the rectangular niche shelf – Schlüter-SHELF-N-S1 – which is ideally suited to the prefabricated niche Schlüter-KERDI-BOARD-N/-NLT for a precise fitduring tile installation. Schlüter-SHELF-N shelves have dimensions 30cm × 8.7cm. Matching designs are available in KERDI-LINE-STYLE and KERDI-DRAIN-STYLE drain grates for a coordinated finish. There are many modern options to choose from; Classic, Tile, Trapezoid, Floral, Curve, Square, Pure and Wave; brushed stainless steel or textured coated aluminium; and textured coated aluminium in eight TRENDLINE colours and 190 My Design RAL colours.

Schlüter-KERDI-BOARD-N niche sets are not only convenient and stylish; the prefabricated element makes installation simple, while they can be integrated into the Schlüter-KERDI waterproofing system as a bonded waterproofing assembly. They also offer enormous freedom of design thanks to four different dimensions and the option to integrate a shelf for double the storage space. The rectangular niches can be installed either vertically or horizontally and all niches are supplied with a prefabricated KERDI collar.

Lastly, Schlüter-ARCLINE comprises a range of profiles that feature high-quality accessories such as towel hooks, toilet roll holders and toilet brushes. The accessories can be positioned in the profiles without drilling so can be adjusted at any time.
