Brick Slips are used to look like full bricks, but without the need of actually using full size bricks, hence saving both space and money

 

How Are Brick Slips Made?

 

There are a different ways to manufacturer brick slips

Reclaimed Brick Slips

These are made from cutting the front of reclaimed bricks. However as some older brick styles have become harder to obtain, due to the labour intensive nature of producing the slips and as the bricks are often very old and break whilst cutting, the cost of Reclaimed brick slips has made them less and less cost effective 

 

Clay Brick Slips

 

Traditionally bricks are made using clay and this is a popular method of making moulded brick slips too.

Clay Slip Bricks tend to be better priced than reclaimed brick slips, but can be limited in colour range and style

Cast Brick Slips

 

Cast brick slips are made from concrete, which enables a large range of colours and blends to be offered and because they're made using concrete, they're durable, can be used both indoors and outdoors and are also heat resistant

Once fitted on the wall and pointed up, the brick slips look like real brick and are usually slightly cheaper than Clay Brick slips.

Kuci Design offer a mixture of both Clay and Concrete brick slips, so if you have a preference please feel free to contact us to discuss further. However the vast majority of our customers choose based on the finished look rather than the material they are made from.
