New brick cladding system is the first to use real Ibstock Brick

Published:  19 July, 2018

Ibstock Kevington has launched a new brick clip cladding system.

MechSlip is the UK’s first mechanically fixed brick slip system to use real Ibstock Brick and contain no combustible parts.

The system works with slip-cutting technology that allows the majority of stock, wire cut and waterstruck bricks to be mechanically fixed into horizontal rails at flexible heights. This means both linear and low-profile brick can be used. Bricks can be arranged in desired bond patterns; and mortar is applied via a mortar gun.

It can be installed by mast climbers, removing the need for scaffolding.

The brick manufacturer developed MechSlip with Ash & Lacy, a Midlands-based specialist in metal fabrication and cladding.

MechSlip is currently undergoing fire safety tests and is expected to be fully certified within the next few months.
