Wienerberger, manufacturer of wall, roof and landscaping innovations, has announced the launch of a complete brick slip and paver slip solution, and a new website to showcase the offer.
The use of brick slips is a growing trend in the UK, for both internal and external use. Whether used to achieve the look of a real brick finish where the use of full bricks is either not practical or possible, improving the external façade of a building or creating internal feature walls within a residential setting or an exposed brickwork look in a commercial environment, brick slips make it possible to achieve a range of styles from traditional to ultra-modern.
More recently, we have seen a growing popularity of paver slips. Natural clay paver slips add character to internal environments as more designers are looking to ‘bring the outside in’.
Wienerberger’s new brick and paver slips solutions’ range include colours, sizes and textures to suit any design style. They are an authentic and easy way to achieve a great looking clay finish to any wall or internal floor.
To support the launch, Wienerberger has developed an online platform to showcase the offering, and provide inspiration to designers. The tool gives users access to interactive functions that allow them to view the slips in both residential and commercial settings, and test aesthetic combinations to give the user a foresight as to how the brick and paver slips may work with their surrounding environments as well as in contrast with each other. This allows architects and designers to experiment during the design stages of a project to be as bold or traditional as they like.
Richard Brown, Category Manager – Wall at Wienerberger commented: “We are very excited to be launching our new brick and paver slips offering. We see the use of slips as a growing market that offers a great deal of creative potential for architects and designers. Our market-leading range means that we are able to provide something to suit every design taste. We are also very pleased with our new online tool that has been designed to demonstrate how beautiful brick and paver slips can look both in domestic and non-domestic settings. I would encourage anyone considering designing a project using slips to visit the site and have some fun selecting different slip options in a range of environments to see how the different combinations work together.”
