I have bought and installed your Showerlay Wiper 800 x 1500 Line Pure shower tray and am about to tile it. we want to use mosaic tiles which are just 6mm thick. After tanking and adhesive the tiles are likely to be about 4 mm below the level of the ...

Dear Lawrence,

I understand your concern. Please notice that while having the future floor level under the frame's height is not acceptable, having tiles sitting slightly above the frame is fine. Ideal situation is where tiles are sitting flushed with the frame.

There are 2 solutions:

- using multiple layer of tile adhesive. After first layer is dry you can apply another to build up height which will allow your mosaic tiles to be flushed with the drain's frame.

- using tile backer boards. You'd need to get 6 mm thick tile backer boards, cut them according to the slopes on the tray and fit them prior to finishing it with mosaic.

In both case the most important thing to do is not jeopardizing the slopes on top of the tray. There are diagonal slopes from every corner of the tray to every corner of the drain.

I am happy to assist if you have any further questions.

Kind regards


This looks great, I'm looking to have a 1200 x 2300mm walk in shower with a 1200 returning screen. This would be perfect (I think) I don't know what height I need though the intent was to use a 18 or 22 mm structural backing board and wanted this to ...

Dear Tom,

Thank you for being interested in our products. 1200 x 1200 would be fine shower tray for 1200 x 2300 mm wet room enclosed by a shower screen.

According to our fitting instructions, we recommend to remove floor boards, fix battens to the joints and mount at least 18 mm thick marine plywood in between the joints so the ply and joints are on the same level. Then you can fit the tray on top of that prepared supports.

In such case your tray just replace the floor board. If you want to use 18 mm thick backer boards on the remaining floor area I would recommend to go for 35 mm thick tray.

Kind regards

Hi, is 20mm tile backer board suitable to lay directly onto floor joists to replace the old chipboard & then tile on top of? Is it strong enough for that? Cheers, LJ.

Dear LJ,

No. Tile backer board cannot replace floor boards.

You should:

- remove existing floor boards

- fix battens to the sides of the joints

- mount at least 18 mm thick marine ply in between the joists on top of the battens

- cover newly created floor with tile backer boards and proceed to tiling

I am happy to assist if you have any questions.

Kind regards


How do I secure this to a screed floor, can I use tile adhesive? Can I secure this direct to a brick wall?

Dear Jo,

Thank you for being interested in our products.

Tile backer boards can be stuck down to the floor with tile adhesive, however you need to use washers and screws to fix them to the walls.

I will be happy to assist if you have any questions.

Hi, is this product suitable to use as insulation boards for underfloor heating when the floor is then going to be tiled? Does it need to be laid on top of plywood (what thickness is recommended?) or can it go straight on the joists ?

Hello,

Yes, those boards are based on material which provides good insulation, can be used as boards for UFH.

They need to be laid on marine ply, are not strong enough to be installed without underboarding. You can install marine ply in between the joists (on the battens) though to avoid total floor height increase.

I will be happy to assist if you have any questions.

Kind regards
