When installing onto wooden floors we recommend using our insulation fixing pack or alternatively, suitable screws and washers. Screws and washers must be fixed at minimum 300mm centers. This is approx 100 fixings per 7 boards.
When installing any type of tile backer board onto concrete sub floor, we recommend using Flexible Tile Adhesive ensuring the floor is primed with a suitable primer before installation.
