Showers and bathtub surrounds made with Schluter-KERDI-BOARD
Ideal tile substrate
Tiled showers and bathtub surrounds require proper moisture management to ensure successful long-term performance. While cement backerboards are moisture-resistant, they are not waterproof. Thus, additional measures must be taken to protect wall cavities from water and vapor penetration.
In addition to being lightweight and easy to cut with a utility knife, Schluter-KERDI-BOARD is inherently waterproof and vapor-retardant. When used in conjunction with the Schluter-Shower System, KERDI-BOARD provides an integrated tile backing and moisture management system for tiled showers and bathtub surrounds.
