Budget backer boards are suited to underfloor and under tile heating applications. Installation below underfloor heating systems on an existing un-insulated concrete or timber sub-floor will greatly reduce heat up time and running costs.
When installing onto concrete sub floor we recommend using our flexible tile adhesive, when installing onto wooden floors The Underfloor Heating Store recommend using tile adhesive and/or screws and washers.
Budget backer boards are waterproof and dimensionally stable (unlike plywood)
Ideal for wetrooms
Easy to carry, no more shifting huge sheets of plywood around
Excellent sound insulation: impact sound is greatly reduced
Cuts with a knife. no need for a jigsaw
Will accept even the heaviest wall tiles, unlike plasterboard.(correct installation method must be followed)
Excellent heat insulation with thermal conductivity value of 0.027 W/mK making them ideal for use as a thermal barrier with under floor heating.
