BrickStick

The BrickStick system offers the flexibility of a brick slip system with the traditional look, durability and feel of real brick work. Developed to complement our Brick Finish package, BrickStick provides a cost effective slip system with properties that a real brick provides. The system incorporates a standard range of extruded slips and cut slips starting from 12mm in thickness up to 20mm depending on brick producer and type of brick.

Our BrickStick slips come from a tightly controlled number of brick companies so that we are able to offer our clients a good selection of finishes, whilst ensuring that the slips are highly durable and consistent in quality.

The system works by adhesively fixing pre-cut brick slips or fired brick slips to a base coated insulation that is prefixed to the substrate. There is no need for complicated mesh carriers or expensive grooved insulation boards. BrickStick is supplied with cut pistol brick slips thus allowing clean and traditional corners to be formed.

Fast and simple to install, the system incorporates a tried and tested method of using a rope lines to ensure even placement of slips. The roped system allows the installer to follow the natural lines of each brick further emphasising the look of a traditional brick facade.

BrickStick Application - Step 1

The area that is to be covered with BrickStick should be marked out evenly with chalk lines. Door lintels and windows should be used as starting points. A starting track can be used to provide a level line to work from. Installation should start from a pistol slip corner.

BrickStick Application - Step 2

A small amount of adhesive should then be troweled applied to the wall. Only as much adhesive as can be immediately covered with slips should be applied, a notched trowel should be combed through the adhesive before the brick slip is applied. Slips can be easily cut on site using a diamond tipped angle grinder.

BrickStick Application - Step 3

Starting above the first course of brick work a 10mm 3 braid nylon rope is inserted into the horizontal joints, this will create a natural looking 10mm mortar joint. The rope will accommodate for any natural bend in the brick work creating the look of a traditional brick built wall. A small piece of rope can be cut to provide a guide for the vertical joints.

BrickStick Application - Step 4

After initial setting the rope can then be gently removed. The joints can then be filled with a sand/cement mortar and smoothed using a pointing trowel. For speed of application a mortar pointing gun should be used. Any excess mortar can be brushed off once it has dried.
