An absolute must for architects when specifying a wetroom project is ensuring that they have the right products in their arsenal to tackle any situation that may arise. Schlüter-KERDI-BOARD is a prime example of this kind of product – the BBA-certified tile backerboard is a popular choice due to the ease of use and flexibility offered.
Here are just a few reasons as to why it is such a widely specified product for use with tile and stone installations.
It can be a big timesaver
When a product can shave time off without compromising on the quality of a project, it is usually worth keeping around. In the case of Schlüter-KERDI-BOARD, the combination of a foam core with a fleece bonded surface means that it is already fully waterproof without the need for additional finishing processes. Foregoing this step entirely can save valuable time.
There is more than meets the eye
Whilst the backerboard is light enough to transport with ease, it also has considerable strength. Though you may not guess from looking at the lightweight components, Schlüter-KERDI-BOARD can support up to an impressive 60kg/m2, making it a great substrate for many different installation projects.
You can get your creative juices flowing
With seven thickness options to choose from, the versatility of the backerboard makes the possibilities endless. As well as using Schlüter-KERDI-BOARD as an overlay onto an existing substrate, you can create features such as shelves and seating with the boards at the thicker end of the range used as construction panels, allowing you to think outside the box.
It can have a positive impact on the work environment
Schlüter®-KERDI-BOARD accepts screw fixings with washers without breaking, resulting in less wastage than with brittle cement-faced boards. In fact, the whole ensemble is cement-free, eliminating dust and allowing tilers to maintain a healthier working environment as well as increase productivity.
There are plenty of options
Alongside the standard board, there are further variations to meet your design needs. To create a curved feature, use Schlüter-KERDI-BOARD-V which has ready-made grooves specifically for this purpose. Schlüter-KERDI-BOARD-N is a range of fully sealed prefabricated niches to add simple and stylish integrated shelving to a bathroom project.
Whatever your specification requirements, Schlüter-KERDI-BOARD is on hand to aid in the creation of a reliable, CE marked waterproof system. For further information about the products and services Schlüter can offer, visit www.schluterspecifier.co.uk
