    I've used Hardie backer for a number of years now & even though I've never had any come backs from it ,it's a mess process when cutting, So I know I've mentioned Delta board previously was curious to get anybodies thought on this or another product
    similar please
    Thank you

    Delta board is great, what do you want to know ? 10mm for floors for me, as long as the floor is sound and no deflection

    Andy Rhodes- did I read somewhere that you use Hardiebacker on walls?

    I’d go for any XPS board over Hardie. Much easier to cut, transport and fix. I tend to use Orbry Board for all my lightweight Tile backer board needs.

    I still use the 6mm HB on floors thought from time to time.

    It's a hall & lounge on floorboards roughly 25m2 was thinking along the lines of nothing less than 10mm, like I mentioned earlier I've used hardiebacker 12mm on both walls & floors with no comebacks

    If you're built like Shrek hardibacker should be easy?!
    Personally I use loads of Delta board or kerdi if the budget allows.

    If it was a straight forward overboard(no ufh) it would still be Hardie 250 for me.
    If it was UFH on top of an overboard, 10mm Marmox or Wedi

    I thought the covering on the Jackoboard was thinner and not as substantial as others?

    For me it's nmp on floors, xps on walls, as general rule, even with the extra labour of adding more timbers to give 300mm centers the ease of xps makes it worth it,
