E-Brick, brick cladding combines excellent insulation with the beauty of hand-made facing bricks.
E-Brick panels are supplied fully finished and consist of a layer of insulating material, which is protected against wind and weather by a layer of extruded foam. These insulating brick cladding panels are then finished with slips of hand-made brick.
The E-Brick insulated brick cladding system is highly suitable for both renovation and new construction, since the most important factors in its success are not just its combination of excellent insulation and the beauty of masonry, but also its speed and simplicity of fitting. This plays an important part in new construction projects.
1. Polyurethane insulating layer, 40mm thick (*)
2. Quartz sand: The quartz sand between the strips and the polyurethane foam prevents the liquid polyurethane running through the joints and staining the outside of the strips. It combines with the liquid polyurethane foam to create a special polyurethane/quartz mixture (micro-concrete) in the joints of the strips of brick.
3. Slips of brick 20mm thick: the Vandersanden facing bricks are sawn into slips and corner pieces approx 20mm thick.
Because the insulating panels are clad with slips of hand-made facing brick, they have a natural look and cannot be told apart from an ordinary wall of “complete” hand-made facing bricks. They have the same properties and qualities. All the brick slips used are subject to regular quality controls in order to guarantee the highest quality in accordance with national and European standards.
