To realise the full benefits of JamesHardie products it is recommended wherever possible to use the correct accessories. James Hardie produce a range of HardieBacker screws for floors, for walls, for metal frames. These screws are self-countersinking, they cut a shaped hole in the fibre cement backerboard. When the screw is then tightened the head finishes flush with the surface of the board.
For wood frames (floors) use: 5.0 x 25mm, diameter head 10 mm PZ2
For wood frames (walls) use: 5.0 x 32 mm, diameter head 10 mm PZ2
We do not currently stock the screws for metal frames.

HardieBacker is supplied in 6mm and 12mm thickness and can be used on floors, walls or worksurfaces. The HardieBacker EZ Grid 6mm is primarily used on floors, the HardieBacker 12mm is mainly for walling applications. HardieBacker is made of Portland cement, ground sand, cellulose and selective additives – it does not contain any undesirable elements such as asbestos, formaldehyde, gypsum or glass fibre. This means HardieBacker cement board is water resistant, immune to water damage and won’t rot, swell or warp. HardieBacker, an ideal flat surface for tiling on.
HardieFloor is a structural floor solution when chipboard just isn’t good enough. The patented cement formulation makes HardieFloor a durable solution for joisted floors. Because it is weather resistant the floor shouldn’t be damaged by the elements during the build, or moisture damage in wet areas after the build. After installation the HardieFloor can be tiled onto directly without any overlay, it acts as a structural floor and a cement backer board in one. Because it is dimensionally stable it won’t expand or contract like wood when exposed to moisture or temperature changes. Available in 19mm, 22mm and 27mm thicknesses for differing applications
