Traditionally, when tiling a floor or wall you would overboard the surface with either plywood or plasterboard sheets, respectively. And while these materials provide a flat surface to tile onto, they come with numerous disadvantages - they’re prone to water damage, movement changes in temperature.
Tile backer boards offer a wealth of advantages over traditional overbearing materials. Designed specifically for tiling projects, they can be fixed to walls and floors, offering a flat, stable and suitably rigid substrate for tiling onto.
Cement Backer Board
The most common type of backer board, these are made from fibre cement and are ideal for over-boarding floors. Our 4mm thick cement backer board has the same strength as a traditional 18mm plywood sheet and measures 60 x 120 cm.
