Tiling can offer up some interesting surprises at times: you can never truly appreciate the challenges of a project until you step into that space, trowel in hand. Fortunately, with Schlüter-KERDI-BOARD in your arsenal, you’re covered for all eventualities.

KERDI-BOARD is the multi-functional installation board for tile and stone. Here are five things you need to know about the solution that has been saving time and hassle for tilers since 2008:

It’s waterproof and ready to tile

Easily cut with a utility knife, this unique combination of a foam core with a fleece bonded surface requires no additional finishing to make it a CE marked waterproof solution—taking you from pieces to project-ready in a fraction of the time needed for working with other substrates, such as plasterboard.

It’s strong as well as light

The light weight of KERDI-BOARD is coupled with considerable strength: it’s capable of supporting up to an impressive 60kg/m2.

You can create with freedom

A choice of seven thickness options, ranging from 5-50mm, means that you’ve got a backerboard that can be used on the trickiest of backgrounds with the utmost ease, whilst also allowing for maximum creativity and craftsmanship. You’re not just limited to using KERDI-BOARD as an overlay onto an existing substrate either – boards at the thicker end of the range can be used to create features such as shelves, partition walls and seating.

It can have a positive impact on the work environment

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 healthy working environment as well as increase productivity.

Products extend beyond the standard boards

As well as the standard boards, a number of other products are available as part of the KERDI-BOARD family, including:

– Schluter-KERDI-BOARD-N, a collection of fully sealed, pre-fabricated niches for the quick creation of stylish recessed shelves.
– Schlüter-KERDI-BOARD-V, a grooved version of the board, specifically designed for the purpose of creating curved and rounded features.
