Likewise, do you have to use aqua board in a bathroom? i will recommend highly to use aquaboards around bath area ,as it is a cement board ,it will not get soak or damage with the moisture of the hot water.
Subsequently, one may also ask, can you tile over GIB board?
Checking the wall surface: Wall tiles can be applied over plasterboard, fibre cement board, plywood, solid plaster, brick or blockwork. MDF board or chipboard are also fine, but not in wet or humid areas.
Can Aqualine be used as Braceline?
GIB Aqualine® can be used in place of GIB Braceline® in GIB® bracing elements 900mm or longer, provided the perimeter of the element is fixed with GIB Braceline® Nails or GIB Braceline® screws at 100mm centres, using the GIB Braceline® corner fixing pattern. E3.
