General product information

How to install this product

Schlüter-KERDI-BOARD for partition walls

  1. The edge of a Schlüter-KERDI-BOARD panel is glued to a fixed wall such that at least the tile covering to be laid on the fixed wall integrates the KERDI-BOARD partition wall. Where possible, the partition wall should be inserted between the KERDI-BOARD panels of the fixed wall. Alternatively, the partition wall can be attached by first screwing a system-compatible angle or U-shaped profile to the fixed wall.
  2. Partition walls with an exposed end can be stabilised using a system-compatible U-shaped profile. If you wish to mount fittings to the U-shaped profile using screws, the flat plastic Schlüter-KERDI-BOARD-ZFP profile should be glued to the underside of the profile to provide better support for the screws. U-shaped profiles can also be used in floor and ceiling connections.
  3. All vertical and horizontal KERDI-BOARD joints must be sealed with thin-bed mortar or KERDI-FIX if applicable. If required for longer partition walls, a system-compatible angle or U-shaped profile can be affixed in one or more horizontal joints to provide stabilisation.
  4. Depending on the specific site requirements, such partition walls can be classified as lightweight wall panels without static verification. As a general rule, the panels should have a thickness of 50 mm. Panels used for shelf structures can have a thickness of 19 mm or more. This should also be determined on the basis of specific site requirements.

Pipe panelling in Schlüter-KERDI-BOARD

  1. The angle profiles and U-shaped elements in KERDI-BOARD allow you to cover pipework and electrical installations quickly and easily.
  2. The components, which are supplied flat, have V-shaped grooves and must first be cut to the required size. A single U-shaped element can also be cut into two angle elements with shorter anchoring legs.
  3. The elements are only folded together during installation, with an adhesive strip positioned in the V-shaped groove holding the element together.
  4. Glue the U-shaped or angled KERDI-BOARD elements to existing walls with the edges of the panel. Suitable adhesives are thin-bed mortar or KERDI-FIX. If necessary, start by attaching the Schlüter-KERDI-BOARD-ZW angle profile to the wall to facilitate mounting.

What this product is made from

Schlüter-KERDI-BOARD is made of an extruded XPS rigid foam with a cement-free reinforcement layer and an anchoring fleece laminated on both sides. The upper face of the board is imprinted with 10 x 10 mm square gridlines.

Material properties and areas of application

Schlüter-KERDI-BOARD is waterproof and resistant to any chemical stresses that typically occur in conjunction with tiled coverings. Where required, a certified bonded waterproofing assembly can be created with KERDI-BOARD.

KERDI-BOARD is completely level and remains free of distortions and decay. It will not rot and is highly stable, even with
one side exposed to temperature fluctuations and moisture.

KERDI-BOARD is ideal for a wide variety of applications. Product suitability must be verified in applications exposed to chemical or mechanical stresses. The information provided below is intended as a general guideline.

Substrates on which KERDI-BOARD is to be installed must be checked for sufficient stability and other project-related requirements. If directly adhering the product, remove all surface components that may weaken the bond. Alternatively, the product can be fastened mechanically with the corresponding anchors or screws.

Select a sufficient material thickness for building free-standing partition walls, shelves etc. out of KERDI-BOARD. Reinforcement profiles may be needed.

In floor areas, the use of KERDI-BOARD is restricted to areas with foot traffic. Depending on the system, stepping on such coverings with hard shoes or tapping them with a hard object may produce a hollow sound.

Select the material thickness and installation method according to the levelness of the substrate. Thin panels of KERDI-BOARD (5 mm) must be fully embedded in the adhesive.

How to look after this product

Store KERDI-BOARD on a flat surface or in another suitable form. When stored outside, the product must be protected against direct sun exposure and weather.

Bathroom features such as vanities, toilets or other heavy objects installed with the product must be anchored in the weight-bearing substrate. In case of substrates comprising stud structures or on-wall installation, attachment to the weight-bearing elements is mandatory. In addition, an abutment must be installed at the bottom of such structures, which may need to be reinforced.
