Schlüter®-DITRA-DRAIN features many of the same benefits as Schlüter®-DITRA 25, with additional features and design changes to enable Schlüter®-DITRA-DRAIN to act as a passive drainage layer for areas where drainage is required below the surface layer, such as balconies and terraces.

How it works?
The geometry of Schlüter®-DITRA-DRAIN allows for the absorption of lateral movement in each direction. Through its unique design Schlüter®-DITRA-DRAIN truly separates the substrate and tile covering by creating essential free space between the layers in which the matting can move safely reacting to the movement of the substrate and surface independently of each other. Within the free space the water can drain away safely controlling the water flow to a drainage point.

Where can it be used?
What makes Schlüter®-DITRA-DRAIN such a success is its ability to be used in a variety of applications, even on problematic substrates. Regardless of its size or purpose, whether indoor or outdoor, Schlüter®-DITRA-DRAIN can be found functioning all over the world.

Schlüter®-DITRA-DRAIN has chosen by tilers, contractors and specified by architects due to its unparalleled success in installations, along with the support and guarantee that comes from working with the market leader in essential solutions for tile and stone, Schlüter-Systems.

Schlüter®-DITRA-DRAIN – the reference point for the industry
A reference point is something you can always look back to, measure quality by and ensure you’re on the right track. Schlüter®-DITRA-DRAIN is the reference point for industry professionals thanks to its six main functions:

• Uncoupling – neutralises tensions between surfaces
• Crack Bridging – prevents movement and debonding
• Waterproofing – CE marked waterproofing system
• Drainage – manages drainage below the surface covering
• Vapour Management – interconnected air channels to help moisture evaporate
• Load Distribution – provides high resistance
