The construction elements result in lightweight, yet durable and strong tile backer board panels that are far easier and faster to work with than all other types of building boards, such as ply, plasterboard, cement board and MDF.


Strong & Durable

Tile Backer Board Panels are manufactured using a high-density extruded polystyrene core with a polymer modified and glass fibre reinforced cement coating on both sides. This adds rigidity and strength. The glass fibre cement eliminates common causes of tile failure associated with panels made from MDF, chipboard, plywood, plaster and plasterboard.



It can be fixed directly onto timber, metal studwork, or on to existing floor and walls to cover unstable and uneven surfaces – making it a popular and versatile product. It can be used to replace ply for strengthening floors or to cover old tiles and plaster instead of removing the ‘old surface’ and replastering.


Rot Proof

Tile Backer Board panels remains dimensionally stable – even in high humid environments. They are ideal for bathrooms, showers, wet rooms and swimming pools but still require the application of waterproofing materials between the panels to ensure there are no leaks.


Cost Effective

The panels also offer levels of thermal insulation. This makes these boards ideal for laying beneath underfloor heating, as it keeps your room warmer for longer and prevents unnecessary heat loss – making it a more cost effective solution.
