    Question:

    I was just wondering what could be used as a spacer material to attach the cement backer board to the 2 x 4 studs in the wall? I've heard of ceramic spacers 1" thick but what about metal tubing or even wood products? Thanks.



    Answer:

    You can use vertical strips of the cement board itself.

    I have also used small pieces of copper pipe.

    Lastly, a company called HeatSafe sells a ceramic spacer kit.
