Moisture 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 or wet it gets. Get the best protection against moisture damage when you use HardieBacker® tiling backer board. It’s the floor tiling backerboard of choice wherever superior performance is required.
With its unique cement formulation, HardieBacker cement board has no loose aggregates or fillers, making a strong and uniform tile backerboard.

Have confidence that your job will last – resisting rot, swelling and warping when exposed to moisture – when you choose 6 mm HardieBacker board. It’s the water-resistant cement backerboard that works perfectly with all types of tile or natural stone flooring.
Our light, easy-to-cut, no-mesh board features our exclusive EZ Grid® recessed pattern, making installation even easier.

Use HardieBacker 12 mm on the floor when additional height is needed. Its fire resistant properties also make it the ideal choice of wall panelling behind a boiler, or even behind a multi-fuel or wood-burning stove.
