Eurobrick has been leading the brick slip cladding sector for nearly 30 years and has extensive experience of supplying I-Clad for interior fit-outs in the hospitality and leisure sector. They supplied around 1570m² of their I-Clad brick cladding system, which is specially designed for interiors. Comprising a composite of a 12mm plasterboard panel with a ribbed skin bonded to it, fixings, adhesive, brick slips and mortar, I-Clad is an easy alternative to traditional masonry. I-Clad’s slim profile means that a real brick finish can be created with less intrusion to the interior floor space.
St Ives Cream Rustica slips and corners from Eurobrick’s Classic range were used, complementing the loft style concept for the interior. St Ives Cream Rustica slips are a cut brick offering a blend of cream/grey hues with a tumbled, distressed finish. Eurobrick’s specially formulated Europoint mortar was chosen in white to finish. The end result is tactile, characterful and stylish, in keeping with the desired aesthetic.
Macai-Limited installed I-Clad for the main contractor Kier. Peter Staunton-Lambert, quantity surveyor at Macai, said,
“Our team found the installation process of I-Clad simple and enjoyable and would use Eurobrick again on future projects”.
