Too awkward to use sheet insulation, it's only a narrow stud with quite a few cables (2x2 pse timber with 9mm pboard either side) and I couldn't be arsed to cut 30mm ins boards around cables/pipes/noggins etc

 

Hope your not tiling on that 9mm board!

Tack the board on and dump a 6pack of squirty foam in there. Job done.

 does that foam have an effect on contact with cables etc. and would make any later work difficult. I think rockwool is less of an irritant than FG. Anyway, enjoy your shower/bath. ☺️Geoff.

No boss, aqua board in wet area, it's only 9mm as it's so tight to get an 800 tray in

I always (well, apart from this job) use 1/2 " backer in any wet areas, whether it's tiled or sheeted

With a classi seal on edge of tray
