STS Building Better

We're best known for NoMorePly, the fastest growing brand of fibre cement board in the UK.

We manufacture and distribute a range of boarding and wetroom systems, plus tiling supplies including trims and tools. And because installers really value our lifetime guarantee and find the products easy to fit, there's great sales potential for you.

We're different because we invest in our merchant relationships.

By sharing industry knowledge and retailing best practice, we create and implement personalised training programmes to make sure our customers grow profitably. Our Business Development Managers will help your staff engage with the trade, stimulate trial and encourage repeat purchase. They give practical advice and hands-on support with trade events, product promotions, merchandising and tailored points of sale.

STS Insulation Boards

Versatile boards for floors and walls, inside and out.

STS introduced slim insulation boards originally as an alternative tile backing board for use on solid surfaces and they are especially good when partnered with electric underfloor heating. Then installers started to use them as a first choice in thicker widths for tanking out basements and for use externally as substrates for heavy tiles. Our range now includes boards in widths from 6mm to 50mm to suit a wide variety of applications and when used with STS fitting essentials, all products come with a lifetime guarantee.
