Clinker brick slips

The flat alternative to facing bricks

Properties and quality of the brick slip

for the EIFS (External Thermal Insulation Composite System)

Insulated facades don’t always have to be white and wear light plaster. Brick slips can protect energy-efficient houses sustainably and upgrade them visually.
Brick slips are ceramic plates that are glued onto a heat-insulated facade. They are usually only about 15mm thick, but we can also provide them in various thicknesses.

With professional processing, it is hardly possible to see a difference between a facade with brick slips and a building with a cavity wall.

Advantages of brick slips

Brick slips protect the facade from dirt, rain, and mechanical stress much better than pure topcoat. This significantly increases the lifespan of EIFS facades.

Another advantage is, you make a one-time investment and receive a beautiful facade for decades. With topcoat, you have to assume it needs to be treated or cleaned after a few years.

Brick slips are low-maintenance, have a long lifespan, high resistance, and very low absorbency, resulting in increased frost resistance.

Another positive feature is the colour resistance of bricks does not decrease over the years.

Split slips

Brick slips in a double pack

Our split slips are produced in pairs. As a result, a front and back are created, which together results in alternating sorting. After firing, the two slips are mechanically separated. This also applies to corner slips.

Cut slips

We also offer cut slips from all ring kiln clinker bricks

A slip is produced by cutting a thin slice from the front and back of a finished brick by hand. We can create slips from every brick we produce.

We offer cut brick slips as standard slips, but also as heads, for example, for a block, cross, Gothic, or random masonry bond.

Corner slips & angle slips

for the perfect brick look

Corner slips provide slip facade with a robust appearance, making it look like a brick facades.

Corner slips are used on external corners and reveals. They protect these areas, and enhance the aesthetics by reducing the number of joints.

A corner slip has a long leg side and a short leg side. The short leg side usually has a width of 11.5 cm.

Runner shells

The ideal finish for the window lintel

For cladding the window lintel area with a matching brick slip, we offer so-called runner shells. The runner shell shows a normal slip on the front and the flat side of the brick with a depth of 11.5 cm on the bottom.

Information on the required quantity

Shaped brick slips

For the exceptional case

Shaped brick slips are corner slips with a deviating angle (not equal to 90 degrees). Requests for custom made slips require consultation. We may be able to produce them ourselves, while some specifications may have to be produced at a partner factory.

Notes on ordering brick slips

Please note that when ordering brick slips, the running meters of the corners must also be specified.

Corner or angle slips can be used in conjunction. This completes the look of the brick facade.

More sustainable

through resource conservation
and upcycling.

The production of split slips requires only around 20% of the raw material used to make bricks.

The webs required for the stability of the blanks are collected during separation and used as  bulk material for, e.g., path design.

Technical Data

Requirements for brick slips

by the EIFS (External Thermal Insulation Composite System)

  • Slips, tiles, or panels according to DIN EN 14411 and unglazed brick and brick slips in accordance with DIN 105-100 may be used.
  • They must be frost-resistant according to DIN EN ISO 10545-12 or DIN 52252-1.
  • The individual ceramic cladding must not exceed the area of 0.12m² and the edge length of 0.4m.
  • The thickness is limited to 15mm plus tolerance 2-3 mm.
  • The frequency distribution of the pore sizes must have a maximum at pore radii of >0.2µm.
  • The water absorption according to DIN EN ISO 10545-3 of the ceramic cladding must not exceed 6% (higher values are allowed for some EIFS systems).
  • Dark/black brick slips may only be used with the approval of the EIFS manufacturer.

Gillrath brick slips are certified

for all known & common external thermal insulation composite systems

A large part of our brick slips are also suitable for insulation systems that utilise mineral wool.

Test certificates prove the water absorption of the slips is mostly below 3%.

We are happy to provide corresponding CE marks/performance declarations of your desired product upon request.

How to make the most of our brick slips

Better fire protection through brick slips

The fire-resistant cladding for the EIFS

Brick slips provide significantly better protection for the external thermal insulation composite system than a normal plaster.

A brick slip possesses the same positive properties as those of fired clinker bricks.

Ceramic is absolutely fire-resistant. Each brick slip has already been exposed to fire at 1,100 degrees Celsius (2,012 degrees Fahrenheit).

Therefore, the burning of brick slips is impossible.

Unlike in the case of special thermal insulation boards with a rear ventilation system, where a chimney effect can occur in the event of a fire, this is not possible for walls with full insulation and applied brick slips.
