Why Bhakti Brick

Why Brick Cladding Tiles are Popular for Residential OR Commercial Builds…

WHAT ARE BRICK SLIPS?

Brick Cladding are formats of real clay brick looks of thin-sized. Handmade, Water struck or Glazed Brick Cladding Tiles are moulded and fired in the same way as  clay facing bricks, ensuring  high quality, stability and strength.  Brick tiles  offer an elegant rustic or traditional look for modern Residential or commercial builds, either in feature walls or for external cladding or if used in Interiors. It’s not uncommon for brick cladding to appear indistinguishable from regular clay brick walls. These products are also commonly referred to as: brick tiles, slip bricks or brick veneers.

BRICK CLADDING

All of Modular Clay Products’  Brick Cladding Tiles are moulded the same as bricks (as previously mentioned) but are also made to withstand all types of weather conditions, including frost and heat. They are thoroughly tested for heat resistance, insulation and their overall performance. 

Nowadays, architects are finding themselves turning to brick cladding solutions for commercial and residential projects.

Brick cladding is an ideal solution for both internal and external applications, giving you some distinct aesthetic qualities without adding depth and weight of standard-sized bricks. If you’re planning on installing Brick Cladding Tiles internally, you will be using far less space. If you’re using them for an external project, they can simply be fitted onto an existing substrate without the need for extensive building work, therefore saving you time and money.

What else is behind their rise in popularity?


WHY ARE BRICK CLADDING TILES SO POPULAR?

Brick Cladding Tiles are exceptionally popular where new facades are required to give a  fresh look, or for cladding, when rendering has been applied. They are frequently being used in numerous commercial and residential projects, from new builds to nice-looking feature walls. If you use the right type of brick cladding, buildings can blend into their surroundings nicely, while offering their own unique presence. They can be used to match existing or nearby brickwork in terms of region, size and age, which comes from the help of reliable brick suppliers like Bhakti Brick Industries. This presents exciting and interesting opportunities for architects and developers to capitalise on.

Brick Cladding systems have really taken off in the last few years, as many architects and designers recognize the practical and aesthetic advantages that are possible with brick thin formats. 

Many architects are becoming more clued into the  benefits of using bricks , as  bricks  themselves are a timeless material, and there are no signs to suggest they are losing popularity. However, Thin bricks also are proving an ever-popular choice because they offer the same tangible and distinct features as brick, while being comparatively lighter and easier to handle.

They offer a traditional finish which can quickly be applied to less expensive materials such as concrete blocks or timber frame construction. Slips are proving popular in urban areas; new developments are often shoehorned into smaller spaces, and there is a very good reason for this. Speed and time are both of the essence, and if premises have to be demolished to make room for new  commercial builds, developers want to avoid this as disruption to the community is something they want to avoid.

Brick cladding is often preferred than using traditional brickwork because thin formats are an ideal solution to save time and labour costs.
