Schluter System's Kerdi-board doubles as a tile substrate and building panel. Its waterproof foam-core board can be cut with a utility knife and glued over masonry walls, wood, or metal studs. Fleece webbing allows tiles to adhere with thin-set mortar directly to the panels without backer board. Installers can construct straight or curved shower walls, partitions, bathtub platforms, vanities, and countertops. The panels are available in a variety of thicknesses, with grid lines printed on one side. 800.472.4588. www.schluter.com.
