The Schluter-KERDI-LINE drain
A Barrier Free Waterproof Tiled Shower for the Hospitality Industry
The Schluter-Systems exhibit in the Innovation Pavilion will demonstrate the assembly of a waterproof barrier free tiled shower area that is suitable for new construction or retrofit projects. The shower area is built using Schluter-KERDI-BOARD and the new Schluter-KERDI-LINE drain.
The Schluter-KERDI-LINE drain is an elegant low-profile alternative to traditional shower drains. This sleek and versatile linear drain is easy to install and offers an interesting array of design opportunities, including wheelchair-accessible showers.
The drain in the display will be installed at the shower threshold to demonstrate the solution that works best for hotels and inns converting bathrooms to meet ADA requirements. The floor can be sloped on a single plane to the drain, thereby enabling the use of large-format tiles and minimizing structural changes in retrofit situations.
Grate lengths range from 20" to 48" nominal and are available in three attractive designs:
1 - Brushed stainless steel with square perforations
2 - Brushed stainless steel closed design
3 - Frameless tileable – makes the drain area virtually disappear.
Installation of the line drain is made easier by using a new Schluter-KERDI-SHOWER sloped tray for the shower floor. The tray is pre-sloped toward the drain and comes with Schluter-KERDI waterproofing membrane already installed on the tray. The trays are available in two different sizes to suit different shower designs. They are also pre-marked to ease the job of centering and installing the drain.
The shower walls in the display will be built using the Schluter-KERDI-BOARD system. The boards serve as a substrate, building panel, and bonded waterproofing solution for tiled areas. The building panels are waterproof and vapor-retardant and can replace the current method of installing tile backerboard and then applying a complete waterproofing system over the entire shower area to prepare for tiling. This board system gives designers and tile installers more control over their tiling projects by providing them with the means to more quickly and easily create ideal substrates for tile. Since KERDI-BOARD is inherently waterproof, only seams and protrusions need to be addressed for a completely watertight assembly.
KERDI-BOARD can also be used as a building element to construct free-standing structures to support tile coverings, and for features in shower areas such as benches and niches.
Schluter-KERDI-BOARD is made of an extruded polystyrene foam core with reinforcement layers and fleece webbing on both sides for easy anchoring in thin-set mortar. KERDI-BOARD is exceptionally lightweight and easy to handle. It comes in seven thicknesses: 3/16", 3/8", 1/2", 3/4", 1", 1-1/2", and 2" so there is a panel for almost any application.

GUARDIAN DIAMONDGUARD® GLASS High-Endurance Glass
DiamondGuard glass provides superior endurance, aesthetics and value in high-traffic hospitality environments. Significantly harder and more slippery than standard glass, it cleans up in seconds. Ten times more scratch-resistant than standard glass, it reduces costly replacements. Because it resists damage, DiamondGuard can increase yields and reduce waste during fabrication.
For thousands of years, craftsmen and scientists have worked to improve the properties of glass. DiamondGuard® is the product of the latest breakthrough: Guardian’s patented, high-energy ion beam process fuses carbon atoms into the surface of glass.
The result is glass with an extremely low coefficient of friction that permanently protects it from scratching, smudging and staining. Extensive testing at the Guardian Science & Technology Center has proven that DiamondGuard glass is scratch resistant, without sacrificing clarity.
DiamondGuard’s carbon toughness withstands the scuffs and scrapes of everyday life to look like new longer. In applications often deemed too risky for ordinary glass, the high endurance of DiamondGuard redefines possibilities. In bustling hotels, restaurants and casinos, DiamondGuard adds pristine clarity and lasting value in a wide range of applications, including tabletops, bars, counters, railings, washroom mirrors, doors and mirrored walls.
Guardian’s Innovation Pavilion Exhibit presents DiamondGuard glass in two colors and invites visitors to test its scratch resistance themselves.
DiamondGuard comes standard in clear glass and UltraMirror. It is available in thicknesses of 2.7 mm to 12 mm, and may be applied in other thicknesses upon request. It is available with standard lead times in North America. All DiamondGuard glass and mirror can be cut, drilled, beveled, edged, notched and laminated.
DiamondGuard is a featured product from Guardian InGlass™, a portfolio of forward-thinking interior glass solutions. To learn more about the breadth of Guardian InGlass products and services, visit GuardianInGlass.com, a comprehensive glass resource for interior architects and designers.

There will be a drawing for a FREE iPad held in conjunction with the Most Innovative Product Award Presentation held at 12 noon in the Innovation Pavilion booth location 6554.
The unique function of our lock system is that it will allow the guest to go straight to their room without checking in at front desk. The guest will have a unique Authorization Code provided at the booking from the hotel. This code is only valid during the specific time peroid booked by the guest. For example it's only valid for the 2 nights the guest paid for.
Second this code is only valid at the specific rooom number advised by the hotel in the booking details.
The guest arrives at his room. Punch in the code, then enrolls his fingerprint into the lock. From that moment it's the guest fingerprint that will give access to the room. But just as long as the guest have booked. In other words, when the stay is completed and guest have to leave the hotel, the fingerprint will not open the door again.
Of course this system will give the hotel AND the guest many advantages
The manpower can be reduced in check in functions, especially at night time The locks are stand alone and can be installed on any hotel with no wiring or network infrastructure necessary.
No costs for lost cards or keys
No waiting in line for checking in
High security, no keys can be lost or stolen Convenient. Nothing to carry around. The guest can jump into the pool without having to check his belongings.

InCode – your code to a perfect installation
Milliken’s innovative coding technology combines the functionality of tile with the beauty and detail of broadloom to offer InCode, a one-of-a-kind install by number coding process.
An invisible code seen only through a hand-held UV light allows installers to correctly place tiles - and offers designers the opportunity to create extremely detailed patterns for expansive spaces. The code is imprinted onto the carpet face during manufacturing using injection dye printing, making a unique identifier for each SKU.
Now every carpet tile installation can be designer smart and installer friendly.
Even large, subtle designs are made easy with this unique coding process.
- Step 1 – Create an installation map SKU coding for each custom tile design.
- Step 2 – While each tile is being manufactured, the unique code is dye injected into the carpet face.
- Step 3 – Once the code is revealed with a UV light, the installation becomes as simple as “install by numbers.”
InCode – When the demands of hospitality spaces require tile, don’t let your design aspirations be small.
