Discover the brick slips from Joseph Bricks
Brick slips used as facade cladding offer a lot of possibilities. Despite the small size, the brick slips possess the same unmatched properties as the original facing bricks from our collection. Brick slips are often applied in façade renovations. Perfect to combine with façade insulation with minimum loss of space. Brick slips are also becoming increasingly popular in new construction and prefab construction projects. Joseph Bricks offers plenty of choice in terms of colour nuances, textures and sizes. From stylish to robust: create a spectacular design with architectural expression.
Brick slips smoked in an unique fashion
All of Joseph Bricks’ bricks can also be supplied in a brick-slip format. Our product range consists of two types of bricks:
- Smoked bricks: high-quality basic brick, purchased from reputed top-class suppliers and then smoked to achieve a unique colour nuance. These standard-shaped bricks are selected with the utmost care.
- Eco-smoked bricks: our own, exclusive bricks with unique dimensions that we press, dry and fire ourselves. The firing and smoking is combined in a single cycle. We call this innovative production process eco-smoking and it uses less gas and produces less CO2 emissions.
As third-generation brickmakers we manage the production process right down to the last detail. This means we can offer endless variation in colour, structure and format. We analyse the technical aspects of the bricks and study the impact of the temperature and length of smoking on the colour. By playing with these different parameters we can accomplish an exclusive and unique end result. We continue innovating in order to make the production ever more sustainable and to seek the boundaries of this ancient product. After all, your project deserves to be a true and top-quality eyecatcher.
Brick slips of unmatched quality
Brick slips are a sustainable alternative to traditional bricks. Fewer bricks are needed for the same surface area while leaving more room for insulation in the façade. In terms of look and fell, brick slips are equal to the original facing bricks. Once grouted, the difference becomes impossible to discern. Our brick strips have a life cycle of more than 100 years. Plus, they are colourfast and easy-maintenance.
