Crystal clear glazed brick slips use a translucent coating to give the building’s façade a natural look inspired by the world around us. Bring a sense of nature to the urban environment with a versatile brick slip.
These brick slips are twice-fired for toughness. They are returned to the kiln for a second high-temperature firing of the clay. This process helps combine the finely crushed glass to the brick slip exterior so it becomes hard and impervious. This enables the clay to vitrify and the glazing to fix to the brick.
These brick slips are available in 36 different shades to suit modern architects requiring a range of transparent colours.
Specific shades based on the RAL colour chart can be crafted, in addition to the catalogue of colours.
Naturally fire resistant due to the materials and coating used.
Bricks slips are a lightweight solution with increase speed of construction.

This contemporary design element will give any building’s façade a natural look that exudes a sense of nature within the urban environment.
