Schluter-Systems has introduced Designbase-SL, a top-set wall baseboard that provides a unique alternative to traditional baseboards in commercial buildings and condominiums.

Because it is made of metal, Designbase-SL provides added durability and won’t crack or shrink over time. Made without the anchoring leg used on traditional Schluter profiles and trim pieces, Designbase-SL is designed to be installed after the floor and is suitable for use over any type of new floor surface. 

The cove-shaped base sits on top of the floor and is attached to the wall using a suitable adhesive such as Schluter-Kerdi-Fix. Because it sits on top of the finished floor it is also ideal in situations where the floor is still in good condition but the baseboard needs to be replaced.

Designbase-SL features a clean, polished look in anodized aluminum with a satin finish, or a new brushed stainless steel appearance, as well as color-coated aluminum in matte white.
