A Brickslip Façade System Designed for Ease of Installation
Shackerley’s renowned SureClad® ventilated façade systems not only look stunning and provide high performance, they also offer buildability and performance benefits. The BrickClad® Saxony brickslip system builds on this heritage, with a brick façade system that offers distinct advantages both during and after installation.
The fully-tested BrickClad® Saxony cladding system is delivered as a complete, ready-to-install brickslip façade. Designed by our expert team to provide an authentic brick aesthetic with no visible fixings, it leverages Shackerley’s Queen’s Award-winning cladding fixing system expertise.
Innovative Brickslip Fixing and High-quality Materials
The calibre of the materials we have used for our unique BrickClad® brickslip mechanical fixing system matches the high standards of clays used to create our BrickClad® Saxony bricks and the quality assurance embedded in every aspect of our brick façade system.
The BrickClad® mechanical brickslip fixing system combines the familiar SureClad® brackets from our Queen’s Award-winning ventilated façade systems with a custom-engineered brickslip cassette installation profile. The cassette profiles are manufactured at our ISO 9001 accredited factory in Lancashire using 0.7mm thick Magnelis coated, or stainless, steel. With steel materials 40% thicker than most brickslip fixing systems, BrickClad® offers enhanced durability and service life.
Because the Shackerley BrickClad® mechanical fixing system is fully compatible with our tried and tested SureClad® ventilated façade primary support system, our brick facades can easily be used in combination with any of the ceramic granite, engineered stone, natural stone or terracotta panels in our SureClad® ranges.
Easier Brickslip Installation
Shackerley’s BrickClad® Saxony mechanical brickslip fixing system ensures faster installation while delivering improved consistency, reliability and service life.
First Shackerley’s SureClad® primary support brackets are installed to the façade to create a supporting grid for SureClad® ‘T’ profile extrusions. The ‘T’ profiles are inserted into these brackets and aligned to ensure planarity, before being secured with stainless steel fixings. Isolator tape is then applied to the face of the vertical ‘T’ profiles and the BrickClad® brickslip cassette channels are fixed to the SureClad® support framework ready to receive the BrickClad® Saxony bricks.
With the mechanical fixing system in place, the BrickClad® bricks can be fitted into the precision-manufactured channels in the BrickClad® brickslip cassettes. The top lip of the Saxony brick is fitted into the upper recess of the cassette and a rubber mallet is used to engage the brick securely in the brickslip fixing system, prior to pointing with Shackerley’s specially-formulated BrickClad® lime pointing mortar.
BrickClad® Lime Pointing Mortar Completes the Brick Façade
As part of our commitment to high-quality aesthetics and performance, Shackerley has developed a cement/lime/sand pointing mortar, specifically for use with our BrickClad® brickslip façade system. A range of standard mortar colours complements the colours and textures of the BrickClad Saxony brickslip range, and gun injection pointing ensures a neat and robust finish for your brick façade every time.
