Edge Strip Kits are a brand new product that aides with the installation and use of self-leveling underlayment.
Edge Strip Kits can be used when pouring self-leveling underlayment (SLU) for any application. When installing electric floor heating systems, either cables or mats, the ESKs help contain the SLU which in turn assists in protecting and encapsulating the heating wire and ensures a flat tile surface.
Dimensions: 4' x 2" x 8mm = 5/16"
Create a perimeter boarder to contain SLU.
Provides flat surface for tile installation.

Peel and stick Edge Strips around the perimeter of the area where you want the SLU contained. The SLU will flow to the strips creating a smooth level substrate. Install across door thresholds to protect adjacent carpet or flooring. Install over floor heat vents, pour SLU and let dry, then the Edge Strip may be cut out to expose vent.
Encapsulates & Protects
Use Edge Strips when installing mat or cable floor heating systems. The strips provide the proper depth allowing the SLU to fully encapsulate the mat/cable protecting the wire for the tile installation stage. Because the mat/cable is fully encapsulated, you don't have to worry about damage to the floor heat system when installing tile/stone.
Flat Surface for Tile
The use of larger format tiles and mosaic in-lays require flat tile surfaces. Using Edge Strips and SLU helps to insure a smooth flat surface to reduce lippage.
