GoBoard Washers

GoBoard Washers can be used in all GoBoard tile backer board applications for maximum holding strength. Take advantage of increased allowable spacing when used in combination with GoBoard Fasteners, or fortify your installation for heavier or larger format tile.

GoBoard® Washers are hardened steel washers that provide maximum holding strength when fastening tile backer board to stud framing. Each washer has tabs for pre-positioning prior to driving the fasteners. These reverse tabs also prevent the washers from stacking while packaged – making them easy to separate. When using GoBoard Washers in your installation, the fastener spacing increases to 12 inches.
