Decoupling mats are used as an extra precaution to prevent tiles and grout cracking because of movement in the sub floor. Kerakoll’s Irdobuild Tex is very thin so you wouldn’t even notice it was there and it will not cause any kind of step when tiling on top.

HardieBacker boards are cement backer boards for tiles and stone and are a direct replacement for plywood and plasterboards. HardieBacker boards are designed to be used anywhere were tiles or stone are fixed, this can be both on walls or floors.
Tanking Systems are a great way to give your bathroom an extra bit of waterproofing in the preparation stage. Kerakoll’s Nanodefense® Eco is blue in colour so you can see where you have applied it for even coverage. There is a waterproofing tape (Aquastop 120) which you use on corners and where two surfaces meet to ensure that every joint is water tight.
Tile Backer Boards are another alternative used in the preparation process and these are cement coated with a waterproof foam core. They can be cut by hand rather than power tools and allow for more creative structures to be made as they are available in a variety of thicknesses.
