-- Adhered --
Using Thin Brick in an adhered application is an outstanding method for renovation/re-hab projects, interior or exterior where brick is the desired aesthetic.
Since it is much lighter weight and thinner in cross section, in most projects it can be installed directly over existing materials.
Adhered materials are far more cost effective than traditional masonry in new construction.
Thin Brick can be installed on/off site, depending on the project.
Adhered applications require many of the same elements as full bed-depth brick: separate structure, vapor barriers and/or weep systems, separate installation and fire proofing, grout/mortar joints.
Most modern installations involve mechanically fastening a backer panel ( typically a punched or expanded metal ) to the wall, then adhering the Thin Brick with a high grade construction adhesive, then tuck pointing the joints. We recommend out TABS II structural system due to its user friendliness, structural integrity, integral weep system, test data, and performance history; plus it's a warrantable (20-year) assembly when installed by a certified contractor.
