Schluter metal shelves can be installed either in corners or directly in the field of tiled showers. They also have a metal shelf that can be used inside Schluter prefab shower niches.

We installed the Schluter Metal Shelf W on the center of our tiled wall using Schluter ALL-SET. Metal tabs should be completely embedded in thin-set. We also left a 1/16″ expansion and contraction joint between tiles and the shelf using plastic horseshoe shims.

We installed the Schluter Metal Shelf E in the corner after tiles were grouted. Grout was removed using FEIN’s MultiMaster and Grout accessory. Then we filled the missing grout with 100% silicone, e.g. Mapesil T. Finally, silicone was applied to the bottom and top of each metal shelf.
