brick claddingBrick cladding panels designed to your specification and manufactured to a high standard in a quality controlled environment can enhance the aesthetics of your projects, whilst saving time, labour and money on your build programme.

Brick cladding provides a fast, cost effective way to get the look, texture and durability of traditional brick walling.

Brick wall panels are suitable for timber-frame, steel-frame and conventional masonry buildings, and are easily insulated pre- or post-fix.

Brick clad panels can be designed to blend with or complement any new build or refurbishment project through the use of brick and bonding patterns without compromising performance or build time. You can specify a wide range of clays, colours, textures and sizes to match all periods of architecture.

Brick cladding allows rapid assembly on-site without the need for specialist tradesmen. Brick wall panels also reduce on-site costs as well as allowing erection in most weather conditions.

Basic brick wall panelling is fabricated by securely bonding brick slips onto an approved substrate board using industrial epoxy adhesive in a quality controlled environment using your specified brick type & brick pattern.

Bulmer Brick Cutting has created enhanced brick panelling products to meet the needs of specific building methods.   Both the basic panel and these enhancements have an anticipated design life of 60 or more years, depending upon the installation standard and the exposure conditions.

The structural performance of these brick cladding systems has been verified by a UKAS accredited testing laboratory in accordance with the following standards:

  • BS8200 & ISO 7892 (soft and hard body impact)
  • ETAG 034 & ETAG 004 (accelerated weathering, brick slip bonding)

The UKAS accredited test results validates these brick cladding systems as suitable for incorporation into NHBC approvals.

SafeSecure® - Reinforced brick cladding panels

  • Targeted on specific locations and situations such as in curtain wall brickwork, public areas and above ground floor level. SafeSecure® ensures the secure retention of facing bricks allowing vertical, horizontal, and inverted (soffit detail) panelling at height.

Steel framed brick cladding panels

  • Targeted on modular construction where there is a requirement for large, stable panels that provide a fast, safe solution to traditional brickwork. The bespoke brick wall panel is securely epoxy bonded to a purpose made stainless steel carrier frame. The frame can then be built into the main elevation or curtain wall brickwork and is ready for pointing.

Brick Cladding Projects

White Collar Factory, Old Street Yard EC1

The redevelopment of a corner site at Old Street / Silicon Roundabout included a tower and low-rise buildings.

The end elevations carried large steel ventilation ducts which were to be clad in brickwork to replicate the appearance of the wet laid facades. To ensure safety and retention of the cladding over the building design life, the ducts were clad in the SafeSecure® system using slips cut from the same brick type.

Great Suffolk Street, Southwark

This refurbishment and extension of a Victorian warehouse used high quality, crafted materials to complement the existing Victorian building.Two elevations of a two-storey extension to the warehouse featured Victorian style tiles under each window.

The designers were challenged to find a method for mechanically fixing these tiled panels which the SafeSecure® system achieved.

Hoxton Towers, Hackney

The two landmark Towers nestle between Shoreditch Park and the Regents Canal in Hackney, east London. Bulmer Brick Cutting Services are responsible for twelve of the fifteen brick related products being supplied and installed at these striking new tower blocks, as well as several ancillary items and fittings.
