Stick plaster to tiles

You can also easily cover tiled walls with plasterboard without first having to knock off the tiles. Here you can save yourself a lot of effort, because after knocking off the tiles only the remaining tile adhesive would have to be removed, the wall then sanded and re-plastered. By cladding the previously tiled surface with Rigips panels, you can produce a so-called dry plaster, which is much more time-saving and much less labor intensive than to lift tiles from the wall.

Glue on plasterboard

Just as when gluing plasterboard to conventional walls, ie during dry plastering, the GK board can simply be glued to the prepared substrate. Used here but not Ansetzbinder, but just tile adhesive. This usually works well enough, especially when using lower strength plates. Otherwise you can fix them with dowels and screws additionally, but usually this is not necessary. When filling the joints, please note that only impregnated joint filler may be used in damp rooms and that a liquid-tight sealing foil must be applied to areas prone to splash water.
