Revolutionising the construction materials industry.
WHAT IS IT?
BrickPlus: EcoSlips is our range of thermally efficient brick slips.
They are produced as individual slips on a 10mm lightweight, fire retardant, high grade EPS panel. As with all our products, they can be made in a wide variety of colours, textures and finishes.
We make our brick slips in-house, as opposed to slicing an existing traditional clay brick. This has many benefits which alternative systems simply don’t possess. For example, BrickPlus: EcoSlips can be made in almost any colour – either matched to your project, or something totally bespoke.
Our products are made using a hard-wearing, advanced composite material that gives more than the usual benefits of traditional alternatives.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
As our commitment to leading edge innovation continues, we are very proud of our product range. BrickPlus: EcoSlips really are brick slips for the 21st century.
BrickPlus: EcoSlips are supplied as individual units to be fitted on site. Adhesive is applied – either to the substrate in manageable sections, or to the EPS back panel of each tile – and the slips are set in place, usually starting with corner units.
Spacer units can be used to achieve the correct visual look and feel, prior to the addition of mortar between the brick slips.
BrickPlus: EcoSlips work in conjunction with our other enhanced brick products to complete your projects to your exacting standards.
