Brick Slips

Brick slips are widely used for cladding applications and the thickness they are cut at will depend on their application. For example, slips could be cut at 20mm to over clad an existing building, but they would be better at 25 or 30mm for brick quoin detailing which stands out from the face of a rendered wall.

Our slips are usually supplied loose for fixing on site, but for smaller details such as wall and gable features, or the side cheeks and/or gable fronts on dormer windows, we can mount the slips on a backing board or carrier panel. These prefabricated panels are supplied with open joints through which they are fixed prior to pointing.

This and other designs have been supplied as brick slips prefabricated on a backing board, and fixed to the face of a wall through the open joints before pointing.

A brick clad gable panel for a dormer window.

The backing boards were cut to size by the roof carpenter, and collected from site with the bricks. They were clad with brick slips set in Flemish Bond, and fixed to the gable frame through the open joints before pointing.

Result: ‘real brick, no lintel, and no support wall either’!

Semi-Circular Wall Feature

This wall feature, for a property extension to an old cottage, was created by us to match an existing brick detail in a cement rendered wall.

It was supplied prefabricated on a backing board, and fixed to a wall directly above a window prior to rendering.
