JACKOBOARD® provides the ideal preparation for tiling

Manufactured with an extruded polystyrene foam core and a special coating on both sides, JACKOBOARD® construction boards form an ideal base for tiling. The surfaces of the JACKOBOARD® system provide an extremely strong bond and can be used on virtually any substrate. The boards are moisture resistant, waterproof, thermally insulating, lightweight and very strong.

JACKOBOARD® high performance construction boards provide the flexibility to meet modern requirements in bathroom design. What was once considered a mere washroom has now been elevated to a private wellness oasis. In recent years, the demands placed on bathroom finishes have changed dramatically to allow refurbished bathrooms to shine like new with flexible and high-quality renovations.

Recent changes in British Standards for tiling require the wider use of more appropriate materials for construction, and for receiving tiles in water sensitive and wet areas.This has increased the demand for the JACKOBOARD® range in new build applications as well as in renovation works.

JACKOBOARD® products including CANTO angled elements, WABO bath panels and FLEXO boards allow the bathroom designer to create customised dream bathrooms with exceptional speed and ease. The JACKOBOARD® range can form the basis for a tiled finish, as well as wallpaper, paint or plaster. So the possibilities for personal expression are virtually unlimited, allowing every bathroom to benefit from its own individual style.

Due to their robust core made of extruded polystyrene foam (XPS), the JACKOBOARD® PLANO construction boards and the wider product range are all lightweight and waterproof – a key benefit for bathroom new build and renovation.

JACKOBOARD® also makes installation simple and easy; the construction boards, FLEXO boards, bath panels and angle elements can be trimmed to the desired dimensions easily with standard tools. Another key benefit of the construction boards is that their excellent insulation values make them ideal for thermal insulation.

The full range is available in a myriad of sizes and board thicknesses to suit all build requirements. The newly launched PLANO premium range has the added benefit of a smooth surface which is perfect for directly receiving wallpaper or paint. This makes it suitable for circumstances where full tiling is not required but a seamless finish is and therefore plastering can be avoided.

High performance and quality manufactured drain kits, in both linear and point drain styles, go hand in hand with extensive variations of shower tray sizes and shapes to help create that perfect wetroom and bathroom environment.

A full range of ancillary items to complement the JACKOBOARD®  products are also available, from fixing and sealing kits through to washers, fixing dowels and BoardFIX.
