Brick-faced Panels

Brick-faced precast – cuts costs and saves time

Brick-faced precast panels offer all the advantages of the natural materials, but provides a great alternative to traditional construction methods because of:

  • Cost efficiencies
  • Speed of construction
  • Simplified logistics
  • Cost-effective production of large components
  • Speedy site times
  • No scaffolding/external hoisting, etc
  • Reduction of wet trades on site
  • Acoustic benefits
  • Fire-resistant
  • Reduction of waste
  • Can incorporate pre-installed windows

Brick-faced precast cladding also eliminates most of the concerns associated with traditional brick construction.

Brick-faced cladding advantages

  • Offers designer more scope, as anti-gravity features can be pre-moulded, avoiding need for cumbersome secondary support on-site
  • Enables complex features such as arches without need for centres and site cutting and fitting
  • Allows multiple brick finishes in each panel
  • Can include windows, doors etc (as with all precast cladding)
  • Panels can be pre-insulated
  • Components accurately manufactured off-site
  • Greater quality control
  • Can be manufactured in large sizes; typically grid width x storey height – this lowers cost and increases the speed of enclosure compared to hand-set brickwork
  • Reduces site programme and thus site prelims
  • Reduces number of site movements and waste; tidier, safer environment
  • Achieves building weather tightness much quicker
  • No scaffolding required
  • Very low maintenance and lifecycle costs
  • Offers reduced overall cladding zone (compared to a conventional brick/block cavity wall), resulting in greater net lettable area
