Brick slips

A start-to-finish solution designed around you

What are brick slips?

Brick slips (often referred to as brick tiles or brick veneers) are thin cuts of real brick, or in some cases purpose-made brick tiles, commonly used to replicate the appearance of a conventional brick wall in both internal and external applications.

Primarily used for aesthetic purposes, as a quick, easy and cost-effective way to create an authentic brick finish on internal and external walls, brick slips also offer low maintenance and long term durability.

The performance benefits of brick slips are similar to those of brick – a breathable, non-combustible, durable, recyclable and energy-efficient material. No other cladding solution offers this combination of beauty and practicality.

How are they made?

Brick slips are usually produced in one of two ways. Firstly, they can be cut from the face of a standard brick, this method is a more traditional approach to brick slip production and allows flexibility with the thickness of the slips.

Secondly, in a similar way to the process used for standard wirecut brick production, a column of extruded clay is divided into the required slip thickness before being kiln fired. This is a more cost-effective production method; however, this method does not offer the same levels of flexibility in size as the cut from a standard brick does.

What are the uses of brick slips?

Brick slips have a wide range of internal and external applications. From fireplaces and feature walls to full housing exteriors and high-rise flat facades, the uses of brick slips today are as varied and diverse as the benefits.

They are used across a wide range of market sectors – for residential and commercial applications, for smaller features, full rooms or complete building exteriors, and for both new build and retrofitting or renovation projects.

Recently, the trend for exposed brick has moved beyond walls and demand is growing for innovating flooring and paving products that replicate the appearance of natural clay flooring. At Wienerberger, we offer a range of paver slips to cater for this emerging trend, with a variety of colours, formats and finishes to choose from.

How do you use brick slips on corners?

Brick slip external return corners are available in thicknesses to match all the available standard slip sizes. These units allow the seamless continuation of your required bond pattern to offer the complete look of conventional brick work.


What sizes do brick slips come in?

Brick slips are mostly manufactured to match the standard conventional metric dimensions of 215mm wide and 65mm tall, however we are able to offer more bespoke imperial or non-standard options in some instances.

Standard brick slip thicknesses usually include sizes such as 15mm, 20mm and 25mm, however if the slips are produced using a cut from a standard brick, there is more flexibility from a minimum 15mm upwards.
