Can your brick slips be installed in a shower?
Yes! you can use certainly use brick slips in a shower installation. Providing that the brick slips are installed correctly, our slips make an attractive alternative solution to standard run of the mill bathroom tiles.
When you install brick slips in a shower area it is worth noting that the slips must be sealed adequately. Sealing the tiles and always keeping the room well ventilated ensures longevity of the product. This process basically stops spores and mould from forming on the brick surface.
Do your brick slips fade over time?
No they do not fade! some concrete and composite products are available to buy in the UK and for these type products I would always advise getting confirmation from the manufacturer before purchase.
Our brick slips are cut and manufactured from fired clay so will never fade.

Brick slips technical support. How do I calculate how many brick slips are needed?
Our brick slips technical support is always on hand to help. To calculate how many bricks are needed you first need to establish whether the brick is imperial sized or metric sized. Based on a standard 65mm metric sized brick you would need will 60 bricks to cover an area of one square meter. Based on a standard 73mm imperial brick you would need 51 to cover an area of one square meter. To calculate your area you would need to multiply your wall height by your wall width.
