Extruded natural clay brick slip cladding

All colors are available in a smooth, sanded, textured or dragwire finish and with the choice of either a ribbed or dovetail key on reverse. Ketley Brick’s range of extruded brick slips eliminate the need and cost to cut down bricks for use with pre-fabricated panels and other cladding solutions. They have only 30% of the embodied carbon of a traditional cut brick slip and are a highly durable, sustainable and cost effective choice for construction.
