Schlüter-KERDI-BOARD is a multifunctional tile substrate for wall areas, which can be used for creating bonded waterproofing assemblies with tile coverings. Additionally, the product has many uses as a structural panel.

It consists of an extruded hard foam panel, with a special reinforcement material on both sides and fleece webbing for effective anchoring in the tile adhesive.

With the available panel thicknesses of 5, 9, 12.5, 19, 28, 38 and 50 mm, Schlüter-KERDI-BOARD covers a broad range of application areas for creating level, waterproof substrates for the installation of ceramic and natural stone tiles. With suitable preparation of the abutting seams and joint areas, the structural panel may be used for officially approved bonded waterproofing assemblies.

Schlüter-KERDI-BOARD is suitable for: creating tile substrates on green masonry, existing substrates of all kinds and stud frames made of wood or metal; creating straight or curved separating walls; concealing wall mounted installations and piping (pipe boxes); creating straight or curved bathtub and shower surrounds; as well as creating work surfaces, vanities, storage shelves or any other bathroom structures. The material is equally suitable for creating level substrates in floor renovation projects e.g. residential bathroom installations designed for foot traffic.

Schlüter-KERDI-BOARD is simply cut to size with a utility knife. The gridlines printed on the surface are helpful for neat and quick installation.

Schlüter-KERDI-BOARD can be fully adhered in wall areas or alternatively attached with dabs of thin-bed mortar or another suitable adhesive or mortar. If necessary, the material may be secured with additional wall anchors. In the case of stud frames made of wood or metal, Schlüter-KERDI-BOARD is attached with screws from the matching hardware system.

Tiles can be installed directly over Schlüter-KERDI-BOARD using the thin-bed method, but other suitable trowel applied coverings or plaster layers are equally possible. Angle and U shaped components (for pipe panelling and grooved Schlüter-KERDI-BOARD panels for example) are available for creating curved features. Schlüter-Systems also offers profiles and attachment hardware for wall connections and finishing edges, as well as matching wall anchors and screws.

Schlüter’s Innovation Workshops prove a career enhancing move for top tiler

Schlüter’s Innovation Workshops prove a career enhancing move for top tiler

An experienced tiler has praised the benefits of Schlüter-Systems’ Innovation Workshops after landing a new job role just months after attending the company’s successful one-day workshops.

Based at the market-leading firm’s Leicestershire head office, tiler Tom Widdison from Castle Donington attended three out of the four workshops run by Schlüter and was thrilled when his certified training got him noticed at leading Italian firm Kerakoll.


Completing three workshops, Substrate Preparation, Shower Areas and Wetrooms, and External Applications, Tom had taken the initiative to attend the workshops after seeing them advertised through Schlüter’s successful advertising campaign featuring tiler testimonials.

Tom comments, “In any industry getting ahead of the game and standing out from the crowd is essential and so, when I found out that market leader Schlüter-Systems were running certified workshops, I immediately recognised the benefits of attending.


“Having worked with Schlüter products including the Schlüter®-DITRA uncoupling membrane and high quality Schlüter®-DILEX movement joints in various projects, I was already familiar with the Schlüter range. However, no matter how much you know about a product nothing beats the practical ‘hands on’ experience, and the workshops provided me with the opportunity to gain a better understanding of Schlüter’s extensive systems, learn new skills and enhance my confidence when it came to installation.



“Specialising in wetroom installations, I particularly enjoyed the Shower and Wetroom workshop, getting to grips with the Schlüter products was immensely useful and I couldn’t praise Schlüter’s Andrew Curry highly enough who answered all my questions and demonstrated with clarity the workings behind the products.”



After successfully completing the three workshops, Tom soon found that possessing certified training from Schlüter can also result in new possibilities.



He added, “Having a certification from such a reputable name within the tiling industry really can make all the difference when it comes to getting noticed. It demonstrates your dedication to ongoing training, ability to install high quality products and initiative in taking the step to keep your existing skills relevant and to a high standard. I really couldn’t recommend the Innovation Workshops enough, especially as the workshop certification led me to gaining an exciting new job role.”



Since launching their Innovation Workshops in September 2012, Schlüter-Systems one-day workshops have fast become an essential part of training for tilers nationwide, with courses for the first quarter of 2013 now fully booked with more dates being added due to demand.



Ian Knifton, Divisional Manager at Schlüter-Systems, comments, “We are extremely pleased with the success of our Innovation Workshops, which provide detailed practical ‘hands-on’ training right here at our Leicester head office. Installers such as Tom have been quick to recognise the benefits of attending, including an increase in knowledge and skills and the possibility of an increase in their earning potential, and as such 2013 sessions are quickly booking up.



“We’ve seen a real mixture of attendees across all four courses, including those who are experienced with our products who want to stay on top of their training and those who are just starting out with Schlüter and wish to learn more. This proves we are offering the right kind of practical training for a wide range of installers, which nicely complements our existing detailed theoretical training programmes.”



At the end of each Innovation Workshop attendees are certificated by Schlüter-Systems for a period of two years. Once this period has elapsed they will be encouraged to attend a refresher course before being issued with further certification.



By maintaining a list of those installers who have completed each course, Schlüter-Systems will also be able to point prospective customers in the direction of those its know can handle their particular requirements. This will result in the successful installation of Schlüter-Systems products which in turn will safeguard the long-term integrity of the end-user’s installations.
