Schluter Kerdi Board – A game changer for building tile-ready elements26th February 2019

Schluter Kerdi Board has revolutionised the process of building tile-ready elements in showers, bathtub surrounds, platforms, countertops, vanities and shelving. Not only has it removed the need to construct traditional, weighty and laborious solid backing panels, such as gypsum board or cement backer board, but it also gives you greater control over the design of your tile installation project.

A multifunctional tile substrate and building panel

Frequently used for creating bonded waterproofing assemblies with tile coverings, Schluter Kerdi Board is simple yet sophisticated in its construction, consisting of an extruded polystyrene foam panel (with a special reinforcement material on both sides) and fleece webbing for effective anchoring in thin-set mortar. This unique system allows the installer to prepare and create a broad range of substrates, so whether you’re looking to create simple partitions with ceramic tiles or complete public changing rooms with natural stone tiles, you can carry out your building or renovation projects quickly and efficiently.

One of the big advantages is of course that it’s lightweight, and as a result, very easy to handle, however, there are plenty of other advantages to using Schluter Kerdi Board:

  • Even and impact resistant.
  • Waterproof and temperature resistant.
  • Vapour retardant.
  • Thermally insulating.
  • Fleece webbing for easy anchoring in thin-bed mortar.
  • Quick and easy to install, but also incredibly rigid.
  • Absolutely no cement or fibreglass.
  • Dust free and easy to cut.
  • Printed gridlines for precision.
  • Suitable for use on any kind of background substrate.
  • Suitable for freestanding partition walls, shelves and coverings.

So whether you’re looking to use Schluter Kerdi Board to create a series of stylish tub decks, custom wet bars, modern partition walls or beauty vanities, you too can enjoy this combination of functionality and design. Northants Tools supplies a variety of Schluter Kerdi Board essentials; offering you everything you could possibly need to complete your architectural projects with ease.
