Wetherby Building Systems has introduced a new brick slip system as part of its external wall insulation (EWI) range for insulating homes and achieving the appearance of traditional brick.

Wetherby’s EpsiBrick-7 is a new 7mm brick slip system that offers the appearance of real brick, without the high costs and lengthy installation times associated with traditional brick builds. Unlike alternative brick slip systems available, which often comprise an acrylic brick finish, the EpsiBrick-7 product is manufactured and fired in the same way as traditional clay bricks, providing a genuine brick finish.

Unlike Wetherby’s 15mm brick slip system, the new BBA Approved Wetherby EpsiBrick-7 Brick Slip system does not require the use of a galvanised steel mesh. Instead, the brick slips are applied directly onto the base coat, significantly reducing installation costs. It is available in 13 different colour finishes.
