Looks like a brick, installs like a tile
Our products look like bricks, they are made and cut from bricks but that is where the similarities end. Installing brick slips yourself can be highly rewarding and allows you full creative authority.
Take a look at our simple installation process
1. Surface Preparation & Marking Out
Mix the adhesive as per the instructions.
Using a notched adhesive spreader apply an even and consistent layer to an area you can cover quickly.
We recommend covering 1-2m2 with the adhesive at a time to give sufficient time to install the brick slips.
3. Fit BrickSlips
4. Pointing the Joints
Once the brick slip wall has been completed you can begin the pointing.
Mix the gun injectable mortar as per the instructions and load it into the gun injector.
Squeeze the mortar into the joints. Once the mortar has started to set strike the joints off with a jointer to achieve the finished look.
5. Finish & Seal
