Handy Heat Tilebacker Boards "Now Made in 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:
Class O fire rated BS
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.
