Schlüter®-KERDI-BOARD is the lightest, simplest and most versatile tile backerboard available, serving as a substrate and a bonded waterproofing solution. The innovative product gives an absolutely level substrate with straight and precise and accurate angling at corners, providing an instant, rigid, even, guaranteed and waterproof base for a perfect tile and stone finish. Schlüter®-KERDI-BOARD is incredibly quick and easy to install and because of its eco-friendly lightweight construction – it contains no cement or fibreglass, making it healthier for installers and on the environment too, in addition it’s easy to transport, handle and cut.

Schlüter-KERDI-BOARD-V is a vertically grooved substrate and building panel for creating curved elements. If a larger expanse of panels is required, several panels can be connected along the edges with thin-set mortar, Schluter-KERDI-FIX adhesive, or double-sided adhesive tape.

Schlüter-KERDI-BOARD-E is an L-shaped panel used to create corners and pipe or column coverings. The panels feature a V-shaped groove and are shipped in a space-saving flat design, which makes them easy to store. The flat panels are also quick to cut to the necessary dimensions. Thin-set mortar, Schluter-KERDI-FIX adhesive, or double-sided adhesive tape is applied to the V-groove. The panels are then folded prior to installation.

Schlüter-KERDI-BOARD-U is a U-shaped panel used to create pipe or column coverings. The panels feature V-shaped grooves and are shipped in a space-saving flat design, which makes them easy to store. The flat panels are also quick to cut to the necessary dimensions. Thin-set mortar, Schluter-KERDI-FIX adhesive, or double-sided adhesive tape is applied to the V-grooves. The panels are then folded prior to installation.

Profiles and attachment hardware. A large selection of profiles and attachment hardware complement the Schlüter-KERDI-BOARD system.

KERDI-BOARD Applications:

Many substrates encountered in new buildings and renovation projects are unsuitable for tile installation, especially in areas with high moisture. This can require comprehensive preparation and waterproofing measures. Schluter-KERDI-BOARD makes it easy to create flat, level, plumb, and square substrates for tile installation over existing structures as diverse as masonry, stud frame constructions of wood or metal framing, and mixed/existing substrates in renovation projects.

Masonry or existing/mixed substrates: Schluter-KERDI-BOARD is ideal for installation on various wall surfaces, including concrete, masonry, existing substrates such as plaster, tiles, painted surfaces, etc.

Stud framing: Schluter-KERDI-BOARD is quick and easy to install as a substrate for tile coverings over wood or metal framing, using the screws and washers included in our hardware assortment.

Partition walls: Sanitary installations frequently require partition walls to create separate shower or toilet stalls or to divide rooms.

Showers and bathtub surrounds: Tiled showers and bathtub surrounds require proper moisture management to ensure successful long-term performance.

Bathtub platforms: Bathtub platforms are excellent opportunities for tile coverings. However, tile setters are often faced with substandard framing, particularly on new construction projects.

Vanities and shelving: Schluter-KERDI-BOARD is the ideal substrate for constructing vanities and shelving with tile coverings.

Countertops: Schluter-KERDI-BOARD is particularly suitable for building countertops and other work surfaces with tile coverings.

Pipe and column coverings: The innovative, prefabricated L-shaped and U-shaped panels of the Schluter-KERDI-BOARD system make it especially easy to conceal pipes and columns.

Curved wall areas: The grooved version of the Schluter-KERDI-BOARD panel is designed for creating rounded and curved elements.

Schlüter Specification Insight: Waterproofing a West Country Vision

April 2018

In looking for a full tanking solution for the ensuite bathrooms of renowned chef Michael Caines’ dream project, stone specialists Devon Stone elected to use various forms of the multi-functional tile backerboard Schlüter®-KERDI-BOARD.

Project Overview
The project took a Grade II listed Georgian Manor house and converted it into a striking contemporary country house hotel with 21 guestrooms. As well as gourmet cuisine and luxurious yet subtle interiors, Lympstone Manor has pride of place overlooking the Exe estuary, a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) due to the wildlife it supports.

AREA: Bathrooms (Floors and Walls)
ACTION: Providing a smooth and waterproof substrate for marble
The beautifully furnished ensuites accompanying each guestroom not only required complete waterproofing, but also a not-inconsiderable degree of levelling and smoothing due to the age of the building.

“Given the nature of the project, if water had managed to cause an issue, it would have cost a considerable amount to put right”, says Simon Wilmott, Sales Director at Devon Stone, “We needed a reliable solution and in our eyes there was no other option better for the job than Schlüter; their product knowledge and expertise is unrivalled in the UK”.

“In converting a Grade II listed house built in 1760 into a luxury hotel, the main challenges were in straightening and strengthening the walls and floor without changing levels”, continues Simon, “Schlüter®-KERDI-BOARD was a great help in allowing us to achieve this”.

Product and process
The walls and floors within the project were constructed of 18mm plywood, with the former being lined with 12.5mm KERDI-BOARD and the latter with a mix of 5mm and 12.5mm KERDI-BOARD, depending upon floor heights. The boards were then sealed with KERDI-KEBA and KERDI-COLL-L to form a fully waterproof base for the high calibre materials that were being installed, which included Crema Marfil, Estromoz and Nero Marquina marble, as well as Peruvian travertine, all in 600 x 600 x 20mm sizings.

An easy solution to waterproofing curved surfaces
Devon Stone also made use of specialist KERDI-BOARD variant, Schlüter®-KERDI-BOARD-V, to waterproof the curved shower walls that were a feature in some of the bathrooms. This product features pre-cut grooves that allow for the quick creation of a smooth curved surface that is ready for tile or stone to be installed upon.

Different thicknesses for all manner of projects
5mm and 12.5mm are just two of the seven thicknesses that KERDI-BOARD is available in; the range carries boards of 9, 19, 28, 38 and 50mm thickness besides. Whilst the boards at the thinner end of the spectrum are designed for use over existing substrates, latter thicknesses can be used as construction panels to create features such as shelves, partition walls and seats, allowing for unbridled freedom of design.

In the case of Lympstone Manor, KERDI-BOARD aided the creation of bathrooms that will support and protect an exquisite and highly personal accomplishment.

Grate News from Schlüter-Systems

October 2017

Grate News from Schlüter-Systems
Further enriching its drain portfolio, Schlüter-Systems showcased three new grate designs at Cersaie 2017, available soon across both its point and linear drains.
With so many options available in the way of tiles, Schlüter recognises that drains are an increasingly important element in creating a cohesive whole for a wetroom. The new designs for Schlüter®-KERDI-DRAIN and Schlüter®-KERDI-LINE —Floral, Curve and Pure—have been developed with current bathroom trends in mind, yet are versatile and neutral enough to stand the test of time.
- Floral: A geometric design with just the right amount of softness, Floral’s uniform pattern makes it equally suitable for wetrooms with a structured industrial or softly textured theme
- Curve: The simple, playful accents of the Curve design translate into grates that are the perfect complement to all manner of trends—from the organic feel of a natural retreat to the clean-cut lines of a reduced geometric wetroom
- Pure: Crisp and minimalist, Pure is a no-fuss, no-frills design that is great to have at hand for its timeless looks
The new grate designs will be available in Schlüter’s ever-popular brushed stainless steel finish. In addition, all of the new grate designs come equipped with a contour frame, making for easy cleaning and a sharp, sleek aesthetic. The linear variants will be available from late October and point variants from late November.
