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-Systems makes a splash at award-winning water sports centre

Schlüter-Systems makes a splash at award-winning water sports centre

Llandegfedd Visitor Centre and Watersports Centre in South Wales has recently been crowned RSAW (Royal Society of Architects in Wales) Building of the Year in the ‘RIBA Regional Awards 2016 – Wales’. Glynn Davies from Schlüter-Systems was consulted on the specification with Contractor Anthony A Davies Group whom praised the popular tile and stone substrate Schlüter®-KERDI-BOARD, used throughout the building, for its ease of installation.

Llandegfedd is a water supply reservoir owned by Dwr Cymru Welsh Water which opened in 2015. It includes a state-of-the-art Water Sports and Visitor Centre hosting activities such as sailing, fishing, windsurfing, power-boating, canoeing and kayaking; there are also four walking trails around the reservoir.

Schlüter®-KERDI-BOARD was chosen for the project because of its waterproofing qualities and was installed throughout the ground and first floor on all of the walls and floors which were to be tiled.

The unique substrate offers a revolutionary approach to tiling and acts as a multifunctional tile substrate for floors and walls, meaning it can be used, not just to create bonded waterproofing assemblies with tile coverings, but it also acts as a structural panel.

There are a whole host of benefits to using Schlüter®-KERDI-BOARD, for example, it is waterproof, temperature resistant, vapour retardant, thermally insulating, quick and easy to install, lightweight and contains no cement or fibreglass, making it eco-friendly.

Dave Davies of Anthony A Davies Group said,

“We hadn’t used Schlüter®-KERDI-BOARD before but would definitely recommend it and use it again.

We found it to be a very good and easy system to install and provided a good tiling background which was completely water tight as well as a nice aesthetic finish once the tiles had been installed. The technical team at Schlüter were also on hand throughout to provide support when we needed them.”

Glynn Davies, Area Sales Consultant at Schlüter-Systems, commented,

“We’ve been delighted with the enthusiasm that Schlüter®-KERDI-BOARD has received with installers such as the Anthony A Davies Group.

It provides a quick, flat and even substrate to tile. It’s easy and clean to cut thanks to its helpful 10mm grid markings and whilst the board is lightweight it’s also extremely strong, holding far more weight than plasterboard. It’s these characteristics that set the product apart allowing for the very best in tile installations.”
