How to install cover strips
Smooth joins and no mould!
Do you have difficulties sealing joins between a wall and a bathtub or shower tray?
Messy joins between a shower tray and a bathroom wall are unnecessary and create an ideal environment for mould to grow.
Simply slip a cover strip into the gap and do the job in a professional way. No mould will grow on the cover strip.
Quick and easy installation of cover strips for bathtubs and shower trays in six steps
|1/ On the sides of the shower tray or bathtub adjacent to the tiled wall, glue a self-adhesive foam strip 10 mm from the upper edge of the product to save sealant and ensure sound insulation. *||2/ Adjust the length of the cover strips away from the shower tray or bathtub after the final installation of the product, so that the cover strip ends at the inner limit of the shower enclosure, or at the edge of the bathtub.|
|3/ Apply silicone sealant on the foam strip in the gap between the shower tray or bathtub and the wall.||4/ Apply approximately 3 mm of silicone sealant to the full length of the cover strip. It is applied to the outer edge of the contact surface between the cover strip and the shower tray or bathtub, and the contact surface between the cover strip and the wall. Fill the ends cut at an angle (45°) with sealant.|
|5/ Push the cover strip into the gap between the shower tray or bathtub and the wall so that it tightly adheres to the upper edge of the product and the tiles. Weigh down the cover strip. If necessary, remove the sealant once it has dried.
||6/ Your shower tray or bathtub is now fully sealed with silicone sealant and a cover strip. The ends of the cover strips used for bathtubs can be sealed with cover strip end pieces.|
|* For shower trays, a self-adhesive foam strip is included in the universal mounting kit.
For bathtubs, a self-adhesive foam strip is included in the original bathtub support.
Seal a gap between a wall and a bathtub or shower tray edge properly, leaving a smooth finish.
Use of cover strips:
- For bathtubs and shower trays
- To cover and seal gaps, making the product easier to clean
- For poor brickwork, which is no longer vertical
- For separating a wall and an edge of the product, provided that the bathtub has been installed in keeping with the RAVAK installation instructions (not tiled).
