Weight Consideration

Another very important consideration when tiling on walls is the weight of the tiles because Travertine and Marble are obviously heavier than a ceramic tile. Listed below are some popular substrates and what they can hold. Also bare in mind that the weight of the adhesive will add approx 2-3kg per sq metre.

Gypsum Substrates

  • Gypsum Plaster - Max 20kg/m²
  • Gypsum Plasterboard - Max 32kg/m²
  • Gypsum Fibre Boards - Max 40kg/m²

Other Substrates

  • Plywood (WBP) - 30kg/m²
  • Tile Backer Board (No More Ply) - 40kg/m²
  • Glass reinforcement cement sheets (Aquapanel) - max 50kg/m²
