Elements insulated board - helping to eliminate mould from showers


Preparing the level access shower former for quick installation

Every installer knows that a new shower room will delight the customer but there is always that nagging thought that, six months down the line, it just won't look that pristine. The first signs of mould and mildew signal the end of the love affair. But it doesn't have to be this way; mould and decay are not inevitable.

An important first step in the battle is to select Elements insulated tile backing board. The waterproof structural foam boasts high insulation properties and impressive compressive strength. It is lightweight and easy to handle and cut. It is also fire- retardant and made without CFC, HCFC, HFC or CO2, helping to reduce the carbon footprint of a building.

Elements Wetrooms shower bases and board offer advanced technological manufacturing for ultimate strength and peace of mind. They come with a 10-year guarantee and the boards can support a greater weight of tiles than plasterboard or timber. To keep up with the trend for ever larger tiles, Elements Wetrooms foam core now offers increased compressive strength.

Abacus has also produced a series of installation videos to help installers get the best out of their products.
