Dukkaboard Original-Panel

An extensive range of flat panels for walls and floors in thickness’s from 6mm to 50mm. Dukkaboard Original Panels create the ultimate substrate. They can be fixed directly to timber or metal stud-work instead of plasterboard. They can also be used to cover old tiles and plaster instead of removing the ‘old surface’ and re-plastering.

Dukkaboard is the only backer board you will ever need.

Dukkaboard Technical Details

Dukkaboard Ratings and Results

Description

Dukkaboard Original Panels are made from Hard Extruded Polystyrene (EPS) Foam which satisfies the requirements for BS EN13164:2008 and achieved a TR200 rating for bonding to cement mortar in accordance with BS EN1607:1997, coating with a flexible cement-based mortar and reinforced with an alkali resistant fibreglass mesh. Dukkaboard XL is made from fibre-reinforced sheets which have been tested for Modulus of Rupture in accordance with the requirements for Category C material to BS EN 12467: 2008

Delivery and Handling

The sheets should be stored flat, under cover, and on a dry, level surface.  Stacks of loose boards should not exceed one metre in height.

Properties in relation to fire

The boards will not adversely change the fire resistance of the wall on which they are installed.  When tested to BS 476-6: 1989, samples of Dukkaboard XL gave fire propagation indices (I) of
0.0, 0.1 and 0.0 respectively and sub-indices (i1) of 0.0, 0.1 and 0.0 respectively. When tested  to BS 476-7: 1997, Dukkaboard XL achieved a Class 1 result.  When tested to BS EN ISO 1182: 2010 and BS EN 13823: 2010, samples of Dukkaboard  Original and XL achieved a reaction to fire classification in accordance with BS EN 13501-1: 2007 of A2-s1, d0.  Therefore, Dukkaboard XL is classified as ‘non-combustible’ as defined in the various national  Building Regulations.
