A modern method of construction with a traditional aesthetic. A vast range of slips is available from our network network of suppliers. Below is just a small sample of the colours and textures available. Contact our branches for brick matching and samples services.

Application Process

Please check the brick slips before installing. The substrate should be clean, dust free, workable, solid and even. Any wallpaper or other residues should be removed before installing the brick slips. We recommend priming the substrate. Spread a suitable flexible adhesive with a toothed spreader by “buttering” both on the back of the slip and on the wall (“buttering-floating”). A string line will be helpful.

Step- 1 With the help of a notched trowel (4 mm) spread special Basecoat adhesive on a substrate of approximately 1sq.metre. Do not spread on wider area due to fast drying rate of the adhesive. Thickness of the layer should be around 2 mm. It is recommended to start where the first tile is to be installed and working across horizontally to complete at least one full row of brick slips.

Step- 2 Lay from several boxes of brick slips at the same time to ensure a nice even colour variation, and to avoid any “banding” issues. Start from one end of your wall, push the first brick slip firmly onto the adhesive applying even pressure across the whole face of the brick slip. After the first slip is installed leave 12-14 mm space between the brick slips. You must carefully press over its entire surface to the adhesive immediately after the application. Laying in horizontal runs until you have completed the wall.

Step- 3 Depending on you project and the dimensions of your wall you may need to cut brick slips to ensure a perfect finish. Carefully mark out the brick slips to be cut, it is best practice to mark out all the slips and cut them all together by using a tile cutter, angle grinder etc. Remove all dust and debris from the back face of the brick with a wire brush.

Step- 4 Corners are installed in the same process as the brick slips.

Step- 5 After pressing the brick slips the fresh excess adhesive must be removed by using a brush (12 mm wide) .It is very important to pay attention to the execution of sealing the joints to block the access of the water between the brick slips and the adhesive. It is very important to cover the edges of the brick slips must be fully coated with the adhesive.
