The new lightweight façade is an attractive option for re-facing existing buildings or for newbuild construction on site or offsite. Moulds can be created to replicate the most complex profiles.
Virtually all of EBM’s brick range is available as equivalent brick slips, without any variation in colour, texture or size. Typical wall thicknesses are 15-20mm according to the GRC backing profile thickness.
The GRC (glass reinforced concrete) backing is approximately 80% lighter than precast steel reinforced cladding, leading to significant reductions in the cost of the structural frame and foundations. It offers greater versatility due to superior compressive strength and flexural properties and, unlike steel, glassfibres will never rust.
The new cladding system is available for lightweight mounting using different fixing methods.
