BAL Board, the strong lightweight tile backing board has been accepted as an approved building product on NHBC registered sites.
Approved by the BBA (British Board of Agrément), BAL Board is a Magnesium Oxide (MgO) board for internal tiling.
It can be easily fixed to either stud work, solid walls or floors, and can support a combined tile weight of up to 100kg/m2 exceeding the recommended tiling weight for plasterboard (32kg/ m2)
BAL Board is moisture and mould resistant providing a high-level tolerance during hot and cold cycles making it suitable for use with underfloor heating.
It is up to 35% lighter per m2 than cement-based boards and is easy to cut with a craft or utility knife producing minimal dust.
In addition, its cold fusion, low carbon manufacturing process significantly reduces the CO2 output compared to other manufacturers processes.
