A new, lightweight, ‘score & snap’ tile backer board has been launched by construction materials supplier Euroform.  Named ‘Easyboard®’, the fibre cement board is designed for use in areas of high moisture, such as kitchens and bathrooms, and has secured an A1 non-combustible rating.


Easyboard®‘s ‘score & snap’ nature is an innovative development for a tile backer board – it is scored easily with a traditional utility knife and snapped to size without the use of specialist cutting equipment.  In addition, its relative lightweight (approx. 13 Kg per 800mm x 1200mm sheet) means that it can be lifted and fitted by a single installer or DIY user.



Easyboard® has been classified A1 “non-combustible” according to (BS) EN 13501-1.


Manufacture is via a unique process, combining Ordinary Portland Cement with a reinforcing matrix, that enhances workability and handling over traditional fibre cement boards.


Available in 12.5mm thickness Easyboard® is inorganic, making it very dimensionally stable compared with traditional wood-based boards.


Commenting on the new product, Mark Atkinson, Euroform’s national commercial manager, said, “Easyboard® is lightweight and a handy size for a single person to install.  Its workability, with its ease of cutting, is a significant improvement over traditional tile backer boards.  Competitive pricing is also going to make it an attractive new alternative.”


Easyboard® is only available from Euroform.
