Add the classic look of brick to your home or commercial building without the expense and labor of full-size brick. Unlike full-size brick, thin brick does not require the expense of extra footings or supports to carry its weight. Thin brick can be used for interiors or exteriors, on walls and ceilings and is available in a variety of colors, sizes and texturers. Thin brick can be applied to a wide varity of surface types (stucco, drywall, CMU, existing brick, plywood, cast concrete) Because of their smaller size and shipping costs, thin brick leave less of an envirnmental footprint than full-size bricks. If installed with Brickfast Panel, the total weight of the brick, panel and mortar weigh 7 pounds per square foot. Brickfast Panel is the only thin brick system on the market that does not rely on adhesive to hold the brick on the wall. Brickfast's unique sliding track design allows thin brick to fasten mechanically to the panel. Brickfast Panel is quick and easy to install. Brick-sided homes and buildings have a higher appraised value and lower maintenance than vinyl, stucco or wood-clad buildings.
