Product Details

JECA ST profiles is designed to provide transitions between existing same-height, hard-surface floor coverings (e.g., ceramic tile or natural stone, parquet flooring, concrete pavers, laminate, etc.), primarily in retrofit applications.

The profile is available in stainless steel, solid brass, and anodized aluminum. RENO-T is installed within the existing joint cavity and overlaps adjoining surface materials, thus preventing edges from becoming damaged when subjected to mechanical stress.

JECA ST profiles, in brass and anodized aluminum size 9/14, is flexible in the lateral direction and can be used in curved applications.


  • Installation

1. Select the profile according to joint width, to ensure proper support of the lateral crosspiece.

2. The joint cavity must be at least 3/8" (9 mm) deep and free of debris. Substances that inhibit adhesion must be removed from the sides of the joint.

3. Fill the joint with elastomeric sealant such as ST or similar. Then insert the vertical leg of JECA ST profiles in the joint so that the lateral crosspiece rests completely on the edges of the surface coverings.

4. Remove any excess sealant with a suitable cleaner.


  • Maintenance

The JECA ST profiles requires no special maintenance or care and is resistant to mold and fungi. Clean the profile using common household cleaning agents.

Stainless steel surfaces exposed to the environment or aggressive substances should be cleaned periodically using a mild household cleaner. Regular cleaning maintains the neat appearance of stainless steel and reduces the risk of corrosion. All cleaning agents must be free of hydrochloric and hydrofluoric acid and chlorides. Stainless steel surfaces develop a sheen when treated with a chrome-polishing agent.

Oxidation films on exposed solid brass or aluminum can be removed by using a conventional polishing agent, but will form again.

In the case of Stainless steel, do not use abrasive cleaning agents.
