NEW SCORE & SNAP TILE BACKER BOARD FROM EUROFORM

NEW SCORE & SNAP TILE BACKER BOARD FROM EUROFORM

A new, lightweight, ‘score & snap’ tile backer board has been launched by construction materials supplier Euroform. Named Easyboard, the fibre cement board is designed for use in areas of high moisture, such as kitchens and bathrooms, and has secured an A1 non-combustible rating.

Easyboard’s ‘score & snap’ nature is an innovative development for a tile backer board – it is scored easily with a traditional utility knife and snapped to size without the use of specialist cutting equipment. In addition, its relative lightweight (approx. 13 Kg per 800mm x 1200mm sheet) means that it can be lifted and fitted by a single installer or DIY user.

Easyboard has been classified A1 “non-combustible” according to (BS) EN 13501-1.

Manufacture is via a unique process, combining Ordinary Portland Cement with a reinforcing matrix, that enhances workability and handling over traditional fibre cement boards.

Available in 12.5mm thickness Easyboard is inorganic, making it very dimensionally stable compared with traditional wood-based boards.

Commenting on the new product, Mark Atkinson, Euroform’s national commercial manager, said: “Easyboard is lightweight and a handy size for a single person to install. Its workability, with its ease of cutting, is a significant improvement over traditional tile backer boards. Competitive pricing is also going to make it an attractive new alternative.”

Easyboard is only available from Euroform.

Euroform recommends Easyboard is installed in brick bond fashion with a flexible adhesive used when placing tiles. It can be used as a wall tile or floor tile substrate.
