    Ok, so they’re not BRAND new, but
    @Schlüter-Systems Ltd@Schlüter-Systems Ltd looking to expand both sizes and colours, to include the Trend line colours.
    45degree fine detail profiles to protect mitred edges from 2.5mm all the way up to 12.5mm.
    So I thought I’d try to get them some feedback.
    I’d appreciate it if you’d complete the poll if nothing else
    Cheers guys.

    How do you create a three way mitre?

    I fully support the use of edge profiles in situations where knocks are likely - more commercial than domestic - even though it's nice to show off the filling and polishing skills as much as possible.

    Where the Schluter range falls down though, is they've simply copied the existing finishes in their range (it appears).
    Large format trends and finishes should have been considered more carefully.
    What they have is nice, but I can't think if many tiles I have worked with that would look nice with them.

    I’d probably try and use a Dremel and polish them back.

    Hopefully @Schlüter-Systems Ltd@Schlüter-Systems Ltd have a full and concise answer. :)

    Totally agree Mark, and I did voice that opinion the other day, so hopefully it’ll be considered.
    A colourmatch service would be very useful.

    Hi Mark (Impish) and Marc (3_Fall), :D

    Appreciate the feedback and have passed this back to the product management team for consideration.

    In reference to the 3-way corner, its a question that has been asked of FINEC a few times and a solution is in works. We'll announce it around Cersaie.

    Regards


    Carl

    My first impression with the smaller profiles for mosaic was that the bed thickness with mosaic is literally nothing, so the backing of the profile might be too much, for large format mitres etc, i think the market is probably in high end hotels and commercial situations. Not sure how the white shades vary amongst these thin porcelain ‘tiles’ but perhaps scanning the colours of the main ones and creating the trims in the exact shades may improve them. They are an innovative product that’s for sure.

    I think they look good. I’m very tempted to try these on my next job.
    I’ll see if my local shop has any in stock for me to ‘offer up’ ........I doubt they will.

    Just having a look at the info here.

    I’d like to hold a trim in my hand to see the best way to 3 way it.

    I think you'd be better off getting a charger in your hand!
