Why use our brick slips versus ‘traditional’ brick?
Modern technologies are complemented by our enhanced brick slip product range.
Why our brick slips are better.
The original ‘traditional’ clay brick has been around for thousands of years, and in that time, has hardly ever been improved upon.
We think it’s time to change that…
We manufacture in Wales, not relying on brick stocks
We produce our bricks in-house using high quality, composite mortar. We do not source brick from elsewhere, are not reliant on availability, and are very competitive with product turnaround.
Truly bespoke options available
If you can imagine it, we can try and make it! The handmade nature of our product means we can adapt to suit most styles of brick including those less common, impossible to find, or yet to be created! We offer a brick matching service or can create a bespoke contemporary design.
No waste left over from slicing brick
Our brick slips are massively less water absorbent than clay slips, meaning the building will shed water and remain dry.
