How Schlüter-KERDI-BOARD can take your bathroom project to the next level

When it comes to planning and designing a bathroom or wetroom, getting the perfect finish right is an absolute must. This can only be achieved by creating a completely level and tile-ready substrate prior to installation of the covering material.

Creating something stand-out is not always straightforward to achieve though as there are several factors to consider. Firstly, the substrate used must be suitable for a tile or stone installation. Secondly is the decision of whether to go for a system from one or several manufacturers and lastly, the products chosen need to be versatile enough to give you full creative control. Thanks to the BBA-certified tile backerboard Schlüter-KERDI-BOARD, the hard work has been done for you so all you need to do is get those creative juices flowing.

Consisting of an extruded hard foam core panel with a special reinforcement material on both sides and waterproof fleece faces to finish, KERDI-BOARD is also an eco-friendly alternative to fibreglass or cement-faced backerboards. The absence of a cementitious layer means that it costs less to transport and produces no dust when cut, making for healthier working conditions and avoiding the release of toxins into the wider environment.

Using various sealing bands, adhesives, and prefabricated corner pieces available from the Schlüter-KERDI range, the seams between individual boards are quickly and robustly sealed. This will create a complete CE marked bonded waterproofing assembly upon which tiling can commence without delay.

There’s a choice of seven thicknesses of KERDI-BOARD from 5-50mm, which means it can be used to create various design features such as shelves, niches, partition walls and even seats within a bathroom area. Pre-formed shapes such as corners or curves allow you to create custom furniture and features whilst reducing installation time on site.

When looking to introduce some unique touches to your bathroom or wetroom project, KERDI-BOARD will provide a reliable substrate to tile onto, leaving you to focus on adding the creative elements and putting your own stamp on the design.
