Baseboard tile backer board is a cement coated building board, which is used to create a waterproof surface suitable for fixing wall and floor tiles. The system is designed for use instead of chipboard, ply or plasterboard, where it works to prevent water reaching the surface beneath the board.
There are many potential applications, although they are most commonly used within showers, wet-rooms, steam rooms and swimming pools. In addition, their high thermal insulation properties ensure minimal heat transfer to adjacent surfaces, making them ideal for use below electrical underfloor heating.
Their versatility allows them to be used on metal and timber stud work, or on existing floors and walls to cover unstable and uneven surfaces. While their lightweight design means there are no extra load requirements and they are very easy to handle and cut.
