Building contractors and housing developers seeking a brick finish on flying gables in timber frame buildings, have found the ideal solution thanks to leading brick slip cladding specialist Eurobrick Systems.
The lightweight and easy-to-install alternative to traditional brickwork provides a seamless finish to intersecting rooflines, eliminating the potential cost of complex engineering detail.
Eurobrick’s X-Clad system has been specified by house builders in such circumstances for over 25 years. Managing director of Eurobrick, John Mayes, explained:
“The slim line profile of our X-Clad system makes it the perfect choice for gable ends. The backer panel is easy to handle and cut to shape and is lightweight so avoids adding too much additional weight to the timber structure.
“We stock brick slips in a wide range of colours and textures, but crucially, we also provide a brick cutting service where we collect whole bricks from site and have them cut to fit our panel system and returned to site for installation. This ensures continuity with the adjoining traditional brickwork, something which is very important to our customers.”
Eurobrick’s X-Clad system, used extensively on new build projects, is a tried and tested product with third party certification from the British Board of Agrément (BBA). It has a system weight starting at 36kg/m² and a profile thickness from 33mm.
