Schlüter provides perfect formula for Mathematical Institute

The University of Oxford’s Mathematical Institute has factored in the number one supplier of essential tiling protection, Schlüter-Systems, during its £220 million development of new facilities- adding up to a first-class installation of the very best degree.

Aimed at providing a modern, state-of-the-art facility to 500 mathematical researchers and support staff, the new building will also be a centre for the academic life of over 900 undergraduates. Therefore, with such heavy pedestrian traffic, it’s no surprise that movement joints from the Schlüter®-DILEX range, along with stair nosing profiles from the Schlüter®-TREP have been installed to provide the ultimate in flooring protection.

A complex conundrum to some, the security, durability and protection of tile flooring can be a minefield of calculations. However, thanks to the innovative profiles, trims and stair nosing products from Schlüter-Systems, the new flooring at the Mathematical Institute will remain sturdy and firm even under the feet of thousands of students.

Carl Stokes, Head of Marketing and Customer Service, comments:

“We are extremely honoured to become part of a new chapter in the UK’s oldest university. The products from ranges including Schlüter®-DILEX, along with Schlüter®-SCHIENE and Schlüter®-TREP are the perfect fit for this brand new Mathematical Institute and reflect the high quality you would expect from such a prestigious and renowned university.

“Not only do these profiles and edge trimmings provide crucial support under the high demands of this facility’s use, but products such as Schlüter®-TREP are also designed to provide a decorative finish, whilst still providing protection for exposed tile edges for wall corners, skirting, stair nosings and tiled edges.”

With over 8,000 products in its range, Schlüter-Systems has an essential role to play in every professional tiling project.
