Brick Slip Systems are a thin layer of brick that is used aesthetically as a form of surface finish rather than structurally. This choice of system has become a popular choice of external wall systems due to their thermal insulating properties and aesthetic versatility, offering both modern and traditional finishes.
Brick Slip systems can be easily adapted and customised to create a bespoke finish to fit any project requirements. Their versatile look provides architects flexibility to design both high-end stylistic finishes and more traditional styles to fit the surrounding area. Brick Slip systems not only can be installed to match the texture and colour they can be bonded to the requirements of the project also which adds to the growing benefits of using this as a facade solution.
The systems bricks vary in depth and installation techniques depending on the project’s requirements. The different types of brick slip systems and fixings include:
- Adhesive Fixed Bricks – depending on the surface you are fixing to ideally use cement or latex-based adhesive.
- Acrylic bricks can be as thin as 3mm, these are a lightweight solution often used on high-rise buildings.
- Clay bricks the thickness can be between 7-20mm we are able to match closer to traditional brick including texture and natural weathering that may have occurred.
