Handy Heat Tilebacker Boards "Now Made in UK" Made in the UK

HandyHeat insulated tile-backer boards are a high performance, reinforced insulating board. They are made of waterproof extruded polystyrene with a fiberglass mesh embedded on each face into a cement polymer coating for exceptional compressive strength & rigidity.

The cement coating offers several advantages when compared to uncoated polystyrene boards including:

Bullet Point Class O fire rated BS Floor Insulation
Bullet Point Greater Rigidity
Bullet Point Higher point loading
   
**Beware of Un-Coated insulation**
Apart from the above, some uncoated foam boards can result in a separation of your tile adhesive from the foam, resulting in the floor lifting.

**HandyHeat boards have a Fully Resin Bonded cement layer to both sides for complete strength and safety.

Therma Coat

Unable to fit Tilebacker boards
Where the installation of insulation boards is not possible but you want to insulate your floor, then use Therma Coat. Up to 16sqm/Ltr.
A paint on coating containing millions of tiny ceramic microscopic beads that reflect heat and insulate from Thermal loss.

The use of insulated tile-backer boards will reduce warm-up times & reduce running costs in all cases, but they are especially recommended if installing under-tile heating on an un-insulated floor.

The boards can be fitted directly over floorboards, chipboard, plywood using galvanized screws & over existing concrete floors with ordinary floor tile adhesive (a rapid setting adhesive is recommended)

The boards are 0.72 sqm each & are available in thicknesses of 6-60mm. The 10mm is by far the most popular size for existing floors, however for new floors (especially conservatories) the 50mm is the most popular thickness!

The 10mm board is the most popular in renovations (although 6mm is OK where floor thresholds are critical) but in a new conservatory many people are leaving the floor screed 60mm lower than normal & are using boards up to 60mm thick for greater efficiency & lower running costs.
