Abacus Elements Backer Board wall Kit

If you want to create the perfect finish for your new bathroom, then the Abacus Elements Backer Board Kit is the professional choice to create the ideal surface for tiling. Simple to install either by mechanical means or with Abacus Elements adhesive, these backer boards are both incredibly strong and more stable in humid environments than timber or plasterboard making them your first choice for creating tiled partition walls anywhere in the bathroom or kitchen.

These waterproof boards are supremely versatile and can be used both inside and outside, on virtually any surface. The board can be cut easily with a hand saw to the right size and shape and provides a surface that has a much higher adhesion for tile than either plasterboard or timber. Using Abacus waterproof backer boards has the additional benefit of providing good insulating properties to control and reduce condensation.

The kits will cover up to 7.20 sq/m and are supplied with waterproof tape, adhesive, and fixings to ensure that your newly tiled bathroom walls have the real wow factor.
