Schluter KERDI BOARD ZT Fixing Washers are for fixing Schluter KERDI BOARD Tile Backer Board panels to metal or timber stud frame structures. Available in stainless steel or galvanised steel, in packs of 100.
Schluter KERDI BOARD ZT Fixing Washers can be fixed with standard timber screws, or the Schluter KERDI BOARD ZS Fixing Screws.
Each washer measures 36mm in diameter, and is designed so that the screw is flush with the surface of the board when fixed.
1. Schluter KERDI BOARD Panels can be installed and screw-mounted vertically or horizontally on professionally constructed stud frames. When using Schluter KERDI BOARD ZT Fixing Washers and appropriate screws, the panels may be tightly abutted when fixing the screws. The selected screws should be of sufficient length to reach a depth of at least 20 mm in wooden studs and at least 10 mm in metal studs. The distance between the screws should not exceed 250mm. Depending on the project requirements, the panel thickness for installation on stud frame structures (centre line 62.5 cm) should be at least 19 mm.
2. In the case of vertical installation, abut the individual panels over the centre of the studs. In the case of horizontal installation, seal all vertical joints that are not located over a stud with tile adhesive, Schluter KERDI FIX or the double sided adhesive tape Schluter KERDI BOARD ZDK. Such abutting joints should be offset.
