Schluter SCHIENE Profiles provide effective and attractive edge protection for tile coverings that are typically bordered by carpet, at expansion joints, or as decorative edging for stairs. The profile offers a discreet, minimum reveal which is ideal for creating elegant transitions between floor coverings.
SCHIENE is available in stainless steel, solid brass, aluminum, and anodized aluminum. The profile features a trapezoid perforated anchoring leg, which is secured in the mortar bond coat beneath the tile, and an 87° sloped vertical wall section that transfers point loads to the substrate and surface covering while protecting tile edges from damage. SCHIENE, in solid brass, aluminum, and anodized aluminum, features a 5° sloped top flange and fillet at the anchoring leg/vertical section interface to enhance edge protection by reducing stresses on the tile, and, in sizes greater than 1/4" (6 mm), features an integrated joint spacer that establishes a defined joint cavity between the tile and the profile.
The anchoring leg of SCHIENE, in all materials, is available with a special radius perforation “R” so that the profile can be used to form curves.

Answer: Order the Scheine trim approximately 1/16th - 1/8 .in taller than the thickness of the tile you are using to account for the thickness of the thin-set. If the bed of thin-set is on the thicker side, we would suggest measuring the exact thickness of your tile, and adding 1/8th inch, as that should be appropriate for a bed of thin-set for an average 18 x 18 tile.
