It stands up to the toughest weather conditions without cracking, peeling or chipping.

HardieBacker 6mm and 12mm

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 while HardieBacker 12mm is mainly for walling applications. HardieBacker is made of Portland cement, ground sand, cellulose and selective additives. Undesirable components such as asbestos, formaldehyde, gypsum and glass fibre are not contained in HardieBacker.  Therefore HardieBacker cement board is water resistant, immune to water damage and won’t rot, swell or warp. Finally, HardieBacker is an ideal flat surface for tiling on.

Gecko Gauge clamps help users install fibre cement cladding. The user clamps a pair of Gecko Gauges to the siding course, allowing them to gauge and support the next course for nailing; a Friction-Cam mechanism on the gauge provides the holding power to support 12-foot siding lengths.

Working as a pair, the Gecko Gauge clamps to each siding course, acting as a second set of hands to gauge and support the next course for nailing. Therefore you should get fast, accurate installation with less fatigue. The Gecko Gauge has been recognised as the fastest and simplest fibre cement siding tool.

While the product is made in America it has been modified for European metric boards. Therefore the gauge adjusts at 10mm for 100mm-240mm reveals and is designed for 8mm thick fibre cement cladding products.
