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-N is a prefabricated shower niche made of Schlüter-KERDI-BOARD that can be installed in both Schlüter-KERDI and Schlüter-KERDI-BOARD wall assemblies.

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 KERDI-BOARD receives BBA certification

March 2021

Already a popular choice for many architects, installers, and tilers since its launch, we are happy to announce that the cement-free building board/tile backer board Schlüter®-KERDI-BOARD has gained another string to its bow in the form of BBA certification.

The British Board of Agrément is one of the UK's leading Construction certification bodies, and vigorous testing is carried out before certificates are issued to products and systems. This ensures that all products and systems which receive the seal of approval meet the British Standards for construction.

It is not surprising that Schlüter®-KERDI-BOARD is BBA Certified – the easy-to-cut and lightweight board is a proven multifunctional product for use in bathrooms, wetrooms and kitchens. Whether you need to create a fully waterproofed wall or add finishing touches such as a bench or niche to your project, Schlüter®-KERDI-BOARD is the perfect choice no matter what design stage you are at.

Schlüter®-KERDI-BOARD can be used as a waterproof substrate in the creation of bonded waterproofing assemblies with tile coverings. Available in seven thickness, ranging from 5-50mm, it provides a sustainable alternative to cement-faced boards. The absence of a cementitious layer means that Schlüter®-KERDI-BOARD produces no dust when cut, offering a much safer working environment for installers.

Whilst Schlüter®-KERDI-BOARD is already a firm favourite with Schlüter customers, we hope that the British Board of Agrément certification further instils confidence in Schlüter®-KERDI-BOARD and solidifies the belief that it is the go-to product for creating even, waterproof substrates for the installation of tiles and natural stone.

Schlüter has launched a new accessory for the KERDI range of waterproofing membranes

March 2020

New Waterproof Collars Provide Secure Sealing Around Pipe Openings
Schlüter-Systems Ltd has launched a new accessory for the Schlüter-KERDI range of waterproofing membranes, which will allow for peace-of-mind as regards detailing around pipe protrusions.

Pipe protrusions are one of the most common problem areas of an installation when it comes to water ingress. Enter Schlüter-KERDI-MV - a range of circular collars, designed to fit pipe diameters from 12-140mm. As well as collars to fit single pipes, there are also options to neatly deal with the dual pipe arrangements of shower fittings.

Each KERDI-MV collar consists of two zones of material – a fleeced outer area and an elasticated fleece-free centre. To install, the elasticated fleece-free centre is stretched over the protruding pipe, and the fleeced area is attached to the waterproofing assembly using Schlüter-KERDI-COLL-L adhesive. The result is complete, tight-fit protection against water ingress.

KERDI-MV joins ever-growing and respected range of products for waterproofing walls. Since the KERDI brand launched in 1987, with its first product – a sheet-based waterproofing membrane – the range has expanded considerably. It now incorporates everything from sealing bands, through to preformed pieces for handling of tricky areas such as corners and changes in level. Also part of the range is the waterproof backerboard Schlüter-KERDI-BOARD and a collection of preformed niches under the banner of Schlüter-KERDI-BOARD-N.

The addition of KERDI-MV to Schlüter’s range of waterproofing accessories adds yet more convenience and reassurance for your installations. For more information, call 01530 813396, email pr@schluter.co.uk or visit www.perfectwetroom.co.uk.
