Schluter-Kerdi-Line-Vario features a polypropylene drain with integrated bonding flange and a channel and grate assembly in brushed stainless that can be cut to size onsite to be customized to various shower sizes. With a single slope to the drainage, linear drains allow for large-format tiles to be used throughout the whole room, right into the shower.

When it comes to linear drains, it can be challenging to specify and source the required drain length during the project planning phase. Kerdi-Line-Vario offers complete customization: choose between a 4ft- and 8ft-length channel and grate, and cut the assembly to size on the job site. End caps are supplied to cover the cut edges of the grate. The channel and grate assembly is 1-11/16"-wide and offered in four grate designs: Floral, Herringbone, Slant, and Square to match the latest trends in tile.

The Kerdi-Line-Vario drain body is made of polypropylene and includes both PVC and ABS couplings for a simple connection to the drainpipe. The flange features an integrated collar made of Kerdi waterproofing membrane to integrate securely with the surrounding waterproofing assembly.

Unlike traditional linear drains, the linear channel is part of the grate assembly rather than the drain body. Since the channel and grate assembly can be cut to the desired size on either end, this allows for increased flexibility in the placement of the flange based on the position of the drainage outlet.

Kerdi-Line-Vario is ideal for wall-to-wall installations and is suitable for both wall-adjacent and center-drain placement.

Part of the Schluter-Shower System, Kerdi-Line-Vario is designed for use in bonded waterproofing applications and is simple to install with either the Schluter-Kerdi-Shower-LT/-LTS prefabricated trays or in mortar bed installations.
