For over 15 years Meinardi cooperates firmly to Schlueter for what concerns both products useful to the laying (profiles, joints ..) both for carrying out the waterproofing and laid without expansion joints visible.
In our page dedicated to the projects, you can scroll through the images of some phases of installation of our waterproofing: a success story that continues for more than 15 years!!
Meinardi is available for surveys and estimates, as well as’ education and on-site assistance to those who, installers or builders, want to waterproof, or laid without joints securely with the method Schleter System.
The exterior shown in these pictures had problems of infiltration in the spaces below. The waterproofing, with Schlüter Systems, of the floor, the staircase, the roof garden and accompanied by all the special elements required , made this external permanently protected and safe.
In these pictures you can appreciate all the rapidity, lightness and project possibilities of a fully shaped zone with Xps panels.
Kerdi board and Kerdi line are the best to create showers flush with the floor and eventual external drains.
The linear discharges Infinity, with the fastening system flanges, internal slopes and different aesthetic finishing allow us to create safe and precise external drains.

We have collected some more example of structures made of polystyrene.
Exibition area built using Eps and Xps system with working showers and shower heads
The phases of realization of a shower wall in polystyrene are simple and rapid, being able to optimize space, time and construction costs.
The polystyrene panels can be assembled to make a simple corner bathtub or a supporting structure for positioning the bathtub in the center room. Without waiting time breaks, it is possible to lay any kind of coating.
Outdoor installation details.
250 square meters, outdoor: the laying of the conduit allows to directly superimpose the new pavement without demolishing the existing deteriorated floor.
350 square meters, solarium: the laying of the sheath allows to lay on top of the existing floor and run the new installation without placing unaesthetic expansion joints: no aesthetic changes in designer’s project!
500 square meters: the laying of the sheath occurs after removing the previous flooring and built new screed. The laying is performed just after 24 hours the execution of the screed without time breaks.
250 square meters, outdoor: the laying of the sheath occurs after removing the existing screed and floor. Installation without time breaks and without unaesthetic expansion joints enables a perfect aesthetic result.
Indoor: the sheath allows you to lay hundreds of square meters of flooring in large size without unaesthetic expansion joints. Schlüter-Systems’ range of mattings and membranes are designed to waterproof and protect tiled installations from lateral movement, cracked substrates and water penetration.
External laying: the existing waterproofing system, once mechanically removed, has permitted the application of Schlüter Systems, to perform a load test and lay the wooden float decking.
In the pictures below, you can see the remaking of a pavement laid just a few months before: our job has required the proper waterproofing in a specific area and the complete restoration of steps that allows access to the basement rooms.
In 11-04-2018, at the Oriani Technical Institute in Faenza, the course was held on the problems and regulations related to the waterproofing of terraces and balconies in the exterior. We wish to thank the participants of the course for the lively interest shown in the topics covered. For those who have not been able to attend, you can schedule a meeting and receive information material: for an appointment, contact us!
It is a well-established principle in nature that flexibility is the true strength of a tree or any other plant. Just think of the pretty poplars, over 20 meters tall, that bend in the wind without breaking.
Even in the construction world, the flexibility of the structure is one of the fundamental principles to guarantee its resistance. A rigid building, unable to adapt to the movements of the ground and to the different expansions of building materials, would be particularly fragile and inevitably subject to the risk of cracks and collapse.
Yet, in the world of ceramic flooring, the use of glues for laying thin bed has spread, offering, on the contrary, an incredible strength of adhesion. This total adhesion, necessary for gluing low-porosity materials such as modern porcelain stoneware, can be a problem for the integrity of the tiled surface. The ceramic is “welded” with incredible strength (over 18,000 KG for a 30×30 tile!) In the background and loses the ability to compensate for the different movements and dilatations, breaking. To overcome this problem, the Schlüter®-DITRA sheath is born.
Schlüter®-DITRA creates an “Adhesion Separation” between the ceramic mantle and the substrate, safeguarding the adhesion of the ceramic mantle but at the same time guaranteeing the necessary flexibility between the different layers of the “floor system.” But how can this apparent “quadrature” be achieved? of the circle “? The” Separation “is guaranteed by the material of the membrane itself, PET, hostile to any type of bonding and therefore also to the ceramic glues.
The “Adhesion”, on the other hand, is guaranteed by a mechanical dovetail anchoring system offered by the small pyramids with the trunk of the sheath, in which the glue is distributed. Substrate, sheath and ceramic mantle are thus solidly connected to each other, but at the same time released in their various expansions. The risk of breaking the tiles is avoided.

The special package Schlüter Systems Ditra 25 and Litokol Litoflex K80 is now available. Membrane and glue together to provide a complete and safe package as for 25 years is daily demonstrating Schlüter Systems Ditra 25, the famous polyethylene membrane to create joint continuous expansion and waterproofing, used by companies and artisans applicators.
Schlüter Systems does not produce adhesives, rather collaborates with the major producers present all over the world: this is to leave free choice to its customers and partners.
A choice that does honor but that sometimes meets the need to offer a complete package for customers who request it: hence our proposal Schlüter Systems Ditra 25 and Litokol Litoflex K80 which, certified by the same manufacturer of glue, guarantees perfect compatibility and tightness of the package.
To complete the package, grout and sealants for expansion joints are available: all at a price significantly lower than alternative combinations or different packages.

Schlüter Systems has put a very useful profile in its product range: Finec, a stainless steel or anodized aluminum profile that can be used for all “handmade spatula” machining operations or for the applications of thin products such as mosaic or slabs in large grids.
The section, specially studied in the radius, allows minimal finish and a secure edge guard against accidental bumps.
On Thursday, November 23, at the National Center for Vocational Training Schlüter Systems Italia, will be held the technical seminar on:
Innovative heating solutions
The course for architects will be valid for no. 4 Credits From Professional Professionals.
Contact us to receive the full day program: below you can see the invitation for the technical seminar.
Schlüter®-DITRA-HEAT has been developed offering unique electrical underfloor heating within the uncoupling matting layer system that eradicates sticky situations, measuring mistakes and self levelling and primer layers. Leaving other conventional systems out in the cold, Schlüter®-DITRA-HEAT is the perfect all-in-one integrated solution for use under tiles and natural stone flooring.
In this news we show one of our realizations. We should thank the construction company “Salaroli Paolo” for the installation and the photos and I also thank the arch. Damiano Tabanelli for choosing our technology.
Ideal for refurbishment and renovation projects thanks to its uncoupling and crack-bridging properties, Schlüter®-DITRA-HEAT is unlike anything else available due to its loose heating cables which are fixed down within the uncoupling mat free of tape as a result of its unique studded design. Offering optimum freedom for creating concentrated heating zones, as well as providing uniform spacing without the need for measuring and marking, the new system will dramatically cut installation time by up to 70%.
Time-saving benefits include:
. Easy press to lay cable – no tape or glue
. No self-levelling layer or primer laying – time saved on application
. Loose heating cable – greater flexibility
. Uniform spacing of every three studs – no measurements
. Integrated and balanced packages – all from one trusted manufacturer
. Can be tiled immediately – no waiting time

Important news for the Infinity drainage system, which increasingly is chosen in the exteriors and interiors to create continuous linear drains.
Maintaining the characteristics that have made it unique (internal slope, ABS and hardware galvanized iron, laying felted surface for proper sealing system) is now available not only the total thickness of 12.5 cm but also reduced 8.5 cm ( finished floor !!). A reduced thickness requirement is useful in all those situations of restructuring with limited overall dimensions and heights.
For more information, technical details and quotes, please contact us !
Friday, March 10th, from 15 to 19 hours it will be held, at the Hotel in Ravenna CUBE, Seminar Technical information by Schlüter Systems.

Thursday April 4, Informative Meeting was held on Schlüter Systems, at the headquarters of the Italian branch in Fiorano Modenese.
With the participation of some engineers, was thorough knowledge of the use of extruded polystyrene and tested some application directly.
We take this opportunity to thank Schlüter Systems and technicians present at the meeting.
Schluter®-KERDI-LINE is an elegant, low profile linear floor drain specifically designed for bonded waterproofing assemblies in showers, steam rooms, wet rooms, and other applications that require waterproofing and drainage.
Shower bases must be sloped from all directions to point drains, therefore limiting tile selection to mosaics or other relatively small-format tiles.
However, shower bases can be sloped on a single plane to the KERDI-LINE linear drain, which enables the use of attractive large-format tiles. KERDI-LINE can be installed adjacent to walls or at intermediate locations, further increasing design options.
KERDI-LINE is also suitable for use in barrier-free applications, including areas subject to wheelchair traffic, which offer unique benefits in both utility and aesthetics. For some, limited mobility due to disability or age makes barrier-free showers a necessity for access. Other homeowners want to plan for the future, ensuring they have an accessible bathroom that allows them to age in their home with security and independence.
In barrierfree applications using KERDI-LINE, the large-format tiles on the bathroom floor can be continued onto the shower base, creating a seamless transition and furthering the open-concept design.
