What is Corium?

Leading the way in safety standards, durability, and flexibility, Corium is a fully BBA certified brick wall cladding system that combines natural clay building materials with cost effective, fast track installation. 

It offers a facing brick finish for projects where a facade system is required, rather than traditional masonry. This external cladding system comprises of interlocking steel rail sections, specially profiled to allow fired brick cladding tiles to be clipped in, providing a mechanical fix. The vertical and horizontal joints between the tiles are then pointed with mortar to provide the appearance of brickwork.

Wienerberger have over 20 years’ experience with the Corium cladding system, where is has been widely used in the UK and internationally. Thanks to the longevity of the product, many early Corium installations have stood the test of time and continue to add beauty to the built environment.

Design Versatility

Authentic brick aesthetics with an unrivalled choice of shapes, colours, textures, sizes, and even premade corners, that can be installed on a wide range of substructures for complete versatility. It all combines in Corium, redefining what’s possible in cladding. 

Corium brick cladding allows for experimentation with bond patterns, brick orientation, vertical and horizontal installation for the creation of more complicated facade design features such as curved surfaces and soffits.
