NEW: Orbry Hard Eco Backer Board
New to the Orbry range is Hard Eco Backer Board – a water resistant construction board which can be used on walls, floors and ceilings. The strong boards are made of magnesium oxide via a process which produces very little CO2 and do not contain silica or asbestos. Available in two thicknesses, 6mm and 12mm, Orbry Hard Eco Backer Boards measure 1200x800mm and can be used internally and externally.
Unlike many tile backer or ply replacement construction boards which are made of or coated in cement, Hard Eco Backer Boards are mineral based which makes them much more eco-friendly.

The boards are water resistant but will need sealing if used in wet areas. Tile backer boards are often recommended as an insulating layer for use underneath electric underfloor heating cables but if a water-based system is used and the boards need to go on top of it, Hard Eco Backer Board is a much more suitable option.
When installing make sure that the rough side is facing outwards. To cut the boards score with a carbide tipped knife and a straight-edge then simply snap. For circular cuts use a jigsaw or masonry hole saw. See the Orbry Hard Eco Backer Board installation instructions for more information.
