Schluter-Systems KERDI-BOARD-SNLT Niche
September 27, 2023
Schluter-Systems has introduced the KERDI-BOARD-SNLT, a prefabricated KERDI-BOARD shower niche with integrated Schluter-LIPROTEC LED lighting. Knowing that shower niches that incorporate LED lighting are increasingly popular, but not every system adequately addresses the challenges of bringing electrical components into a wet environment the company designed them to ensure all connections are compliant with the National Electrical Code (NEC) and Canadian Electrical Code (CEC).
The simple three-step system is comprised of the niche with integrated LED lighting, the power supply and cables specifically designed to ensure a watertight connection. The KERDI-BOARD-SNLT niche is designed for a vertical installation and is available in three sizes — 12 by 12, 12 by 20 and 12 by 28 inches. Each niche incorporates a mounting profile with a LIPROTEC LED light strip that is evenly diffused along the length of the tube for a uniform line of light.
The light strip provides a warm, white light measuring 3000K and a superior Color Rendering Index (CRI) of 95+, ensuring that tiles, décor and even skin tones are rich, vibrant and natural. The niche also features a pre-installed waterproof cable connection box to ensure the electrical connection is code compliant.
Two versions of the power supply are available — LIPROTEC-ECX, an all-in-one LED driver and in-wall dimmer switch, and LIPROTEC-ECD, an in-line dimmable driver that is compatible with a range of popular dimmer switches, including smart dimmers.
Finally, the LIPROTEC-CW cable is designed to connect the KERDI-BOARD-SNLT shower niche to the power supply. It features a pre-installed waterproof snap-in gland for a secure connection to the niche.
The new KERDI-BOARD-SNLT shower niche integrates perfectly with the Schluter-Shower System for a bonded waterproof assembly.
