Brick Cladding Panels

We are now able to offer this exciting new Brick Cladding product that is causing lots of interest in the construction industry. What's so exciting about it? To be honest, it's not so much a new product as a re-engineered version of an old product. The changes however, reflect a much needed alternative to traditional brick backed cladding.

You see, in traditional products, the brick faces are physically attached to a backing plate or board. This is usually done by using an incredibly strong adhesive or by bolting the bricks to a rail or board. However, there are a number of downsides to the traditional product such as bricks becoming unstuck, cracking under movement and pressure. Not to mention the sheer weight of these boards and the support needed to install them.

Bricks can be made from recycled materials in a range of finishes that offer great thermal properties too! An altogether greener product.

The new mechanical brick cladding system is different in that installers fit a lightweight rail system into which the brick faces slide. It's a little like tongue and groove style boards that we're used to with flooring and wood panelling.

The benefit of this new system is:

  • It is a much lighter system to handle
  • One person can pretty much install it single-handed
  • Once the rails are in place, inserting bricks is simple
  • Less supporting tools are needed to install
  • Much safer for the fitter
  • Lighter and safer for building construction

So imagine not needing pallet loads of bricks. Think about how much less mortar and mess there would be. All that manpower you could save by having us fitting masonry support and brick cladding in one go!

Yet another innovation of this product is the fact that the brick faces can be made from a whole range of materials such as brick, concrete and the lightweight Glass Reinforced Concrete.

"Brick walls just got a whole lot lighter, a whole lot safer and a lot more cost effective."

Requires multiple people to install and secure Can be installed by a single installer
Is slow and heavy, laborious work The lightweight nature makes installation quicker and more streamlined
Can be hazardous to person safety Safer to handle generally due to the lightweight construction
Bricks are know to fall away from the bonding over time The brick faces are held in place mechanically so there is no fall away
Requires specialist bricklayers to create and install No need for specialist bricklayers, just a trained installer
Slow to install, meaning greater costs Trained worker focused on installation only can complete the job much quicker saving time and money
