Introducing JACKOBOARD® 100% Leak-Proof Construction Boards for Bathrooms

JACKON Insulation’s quality materials have transformed the Australian home construction market. The company’s signature water-repelling JACKOBOARD® premium construction boards are the perfect solution for building bathrooms. These exceptional extruded polystyrene XPS foam boards are purpose-designed for creating a bathroom that is beautiful, durable and highly functional.

Bring Your Bathroom Ideas to Life Quickly

These 100% leak-proof boards are ideal for creating shower trays that are aesthetically pleasing, clean and easy to install. When planning a new bathroom or modernising an older one, ideas can be implemented quickly and easily using JACKOBOARD® construction boards. The boards are lightweight, having a weight of 3 to 6kg/m² depending on the preferred thickness selected.

They can also be readily trimmed to size by saw, hot wire or cutter, making them incredibly easy to work with. Once installed, they can be covered immediately with tiles, filler or plaster. Whether for floor-level showers, tub solutions, shelves, washstands or special furniture ideas, JACKOBOARD® offers a premium quality product that can be used for every bathroom idea.

Unmatched Durability and Performance

A high compressive strength of 300kPa ensures they are capable of handling the pressures of any materials laid over it and heavy usage for years to come. JACKOBOARD® construction boards are rot-proof for EB, EB+, and EC environments, making them ideal for wet environments like bathrooms. XPS foam is also an extremely high performance insulator, meaning your bathroom constructions can contribute to the overall energy efficiency and comfort of your home.

JACKOBOARD® Plano – A Total Interior Design Solution

JACKOBOARD® Plano construction boards are perfectly suited for construction and interior furnishings and for both new construction and renovation work. They are available in several different dimensions and thicknesses to adapt to every project, offering no limit to the design flexibility. They can also be used on essentially any substrate. It’s the ultimate solution for creative interior design, allowing you to build the perfect custom bathroom with ease.


JACKOBOARD® Plano Premium for All Coverings

With JACKOBOARD® Plano Premium, you have the ultimate flexibility in designing and constructing bathrooms. All walls and partitions can be covered, ensuring complete leak-proof performance throughout the bathroom. The construction boards are available in two sizes (1300x600mm and 2600x600mm) ranging from 10 to 50mm. They feature a unique tapered edge on each side, facilitating easy installation.

Plano Premium is easy to grout and provides a perfectly flat surface after applying a glass fibre tape or sealing tape in the adhesive mortar. These boards make all finishing options possible, without pre-treatment, thanks to their special non-woven surface. This includes paint, tiles, plaster or wallpaper or a combination of these, all on a single board. For example, you could tile the area exposed to water spray and paint the remaining surface.

JACKOBOARD® Aqua Shower Trays for an Italian-Style Shower

Developed for creating shower areas, the JACKOBOARD® Aqua shower trays ensure a completely leakproof installation in record time. Perfectly adapted for floor-level installations, these innovative construction boards are available in all standard formats and many custom shapes and sizes making them convenient for highly aesthetic creations in the most sophisticated décors, as well as in facilities requiring PRM access.

The pre-formed pitch of the shower tray was carefully designed to ensure reliable, controlled drainage whilst the overall construction ensures a perfectly leak-tight connection between the floor drain system and its covering. This facilitates a fast and easy installation that provides maximum time savings. As a complete package, JACKOBOARD® Aqua is supplied with a high-end stainless-steel grate.

JACKOBOARD® Aqua Reno for All Renovation Work

With a total installation height of just 65mm, JACKOBOARD® Aqua Reno boards are particularly well-suited for use in buildings where the existing floor cannot be disturbed. It features an integrated drainage system featuring a very high drainage rate of 0.5l/s. This means you don’t have to apply a filler mortar beforehand and to wait overnight for it to set. A cleverly designed cut away section makes it easy to meet all waste pipe configurations, providing the ultimate time-saving solution.

Additional Accessories for Sealing Shower Trays and Boards

A variety of useful accessories are also available to streamline the bathroom construction or renovation process. This includes the JACKOBOARD® sealing kit for shower trays, which includes a special glue, sealing tape and 4E corners for the leak-proof angles of the shower. Meanwhile the JACKOBOARD® sealing tape optimises installation by preventing the infiltration of water between the tray, the walls and the floor. Finally, the BOARD-FIX® adhesive and sealing compound ensures joints between boards are guaranteed to be leak-proof

Related Questions

What is the best insulation for bathrooms?

Highly durable, moisture resistant insulation like XPS foam is the best option for a bathroom as it is highly durable and repels water, helping you avoid mould, rot and other issues related to moisture.

What are the best materials to use to build a bathroom?

Ceramic tile is a classic choice for bathrooms as it is unaffected by moisture related issues. Whatever you choose, it must be properly prepared and have the necessary waterproofing a bathroom needs.

Why does a bathroom need to be insulated?

Neglecting to insulate bathroom floors and walls cause significant heat loss, which can make showers, tubs, and the bathroom itself much colder. This also affects the overall energy efficiency of your house. Insulation behind bathroom floors and walls should be equal to the insulation installed in the rest of the property.
