Cement Backerboard: HardieBacker®
Moisture and mould sensitive areas like kitchens and bathrooms are particularly prone to the negative influence of water on tile backer boards. Whereas traditional materials such as plywood and plasterboard are liable to break or disintegrate when wet, have confidence that your job will last with a board that stays strong and firm, no matter how damp it gets.
Get the best protection against moisture damage when you use HardieBacker® board. It’s the floor tiling backerboard of choice wherever superior performance is required.
HardieBacker® is available in 6mm and 12mm sheets. HardieBacker® 6mm with EZ Grid® has a recessed fastening pattern to make installation even easier. HardieBacker® is the #1 cement board in the world.
HardieBacker® should be used anywhere in your home where tile is applied; on floors, walls and even countertops. It should be used especially in wet areas such as bathrooms and kitchens, where walls and floors are particularly exposed to moisture. Typically, 6mm is used on the floors and 12mm on the walls.
