The Waterproof Construction Board System for Creative Design

Walls surrounding a bath or shower may be subjected to repeated or persistent wetting; therefore, the substrate for any tiling needs to be carefully selected.

JACKOBOARD® makes an excellent choice due to its waterproof, thermally insulating and truly lightweight attributes.

Thanks to their extruded polystyrene foam core and special coating on both sides, JACKOBOARD® construction boards are the ideal base for plaster, tile and render. The surface of the JACKOBOARD® system provides a strong primer and can be used on virtually any substrate. At the same time, they are waterproof, thermally insulating, truly lightweight and easy to install.

JACKOBOARD® is the leading UK brand of polystyrene-based construction boards, wet room tile backer boards and other associated products for the tiling industry.
