Eurobrick systems proving popular for apartment developments

Increasingly, we are having discussions with architects and developers about new apartment buildings. Traditional masonry construction is not always appropriate for some developments and alternative building methods are being sought.

We are the UK’s leading brick slip cladding specialist and have supplied both X-Clad and P-Clad systems for installation on residential developments. Both systems have been rigorously tested and have third party certification from the BBA (British Board of Agrément) and are also LABC (Local Authority Building Control) registered.

X-Clad is lightweight, having an installed system weight starting from 36kg/m². It is easy to handle and cut on-site, allowing for quick installation. The extruded polystyrene backer panel is available in 3 standard thicknesses; 17, 25 and 50mm and by overlaying the backer panel with plain sheets, up to 100mm thickness of panel can be installed. With a thermal conductivity of 0.033W/mK, X-Clad can enhance the overall thermal performance of the development if required.

image-059The P-Clad system has a 10mm thick cement particle board backer panel - designed to be fixed directly to battens or bracket systems. It was developed for use as an external sheathing where there is no requirement for insulation. P-Clad is certified for installation on buildings over 18m high (constructed with steel frame substrate).

Residential developments currently installing our X-Clad and P-Clad systems include The Central at Iverson Road, West Hampstead and The Point, Gants Hill, Ilford, respectively. Both are large, new build developments of 1, 2 and 3 bed apartments.
