Working with architects, contractors, volumetric modular suppliers, developers & installation specialists, our cladding systems have been used on buildings across a wide range of sectors, from residential to retail, in both the public and private sector. Consequently we are able to demonstrate that our cladding systems such as Gebrik are cost-effective and durable throughout the lifetime of a building.
Whether your method of construction is refurbishment or new-build, our prefabricated systems typically provide insulation, weather protection and durability with the benefit of being fully tested and certified, eg to BBA, BRE and CWCT standards.
To ensure we fully understand the drivers for our clients’ decisions we regularly attend conferences, network with industry experts and subscribe to numerous communications. We therefore understand current issues such as Priority Schools Building Programme, Green Deal, ECO, BREEAM, Code for Sustainable Homes, RE:FIT, Modern Methods of Construction, Zero Carbon and many more.

Isosystems achieves ISO14001:2015 certification
Isosystems achieves ISO14001:2015 certification:
We are delighted to announce that our supply partner Isosystems has achieved ISO 14001:2015 certification for the manufacturer of their Gebrik insulating brick cladding system and other cladding including natural stone, gravel and ceramic finishes.
ISO 14001 is an internationally agreed standard that sets out the requirements for an environmental management system. It helps organisations improve their environmental performance through more efficient use of resources and reduction of waste by considering all environmental issues relevant to its operations, such as air pollution, water and sewage issues, waste management, soil contamination, climate change mitigation and adaptation, and resource use and efficiency.
It also includes the need for continual improvement of an organisation’s systems and approach to environmental concerns, which means that our clients and stakeholders can be confident that they are using a sustainable cladding system that is not just fit for today but also the future.
A Collaboration, Where Old Meets New, Leads to Success
A Collaboration, Where Old Meets New, Leads to Success:
We are delighted to learn that after working closely in partnership with UK brick supplier Ketley Brick, they have been shortlisted in the 2018 Brick Development Awards for Best Commercial Building.
The office at Croxley Green Business Park in Watford was designed by ESA Architects and the lead architect Lambros Schizas incorporated an area of textured brickwork, which required a solid brick with Class A characteristics and perforated bricks to create areas of plain brickwork beneath the textured sections. In addition, he wanted to incorporate a lightweight, non load-bearing brick slip solution within the curtain walling, so that the entire brick façade was from the same brick finish. Gebrik was identified as the ideal solution for this element of the façade and Ketley were the only UK brick manufacturer able to produce matching slips within the demanding tolerance, which could be cast in moulds to produce Gebrik panels and corners. To read the case study in full, visit the Ketley site by clicking here.
Reaching the shortlist in this highly competitive category is recognition that old technology can meet new technology. The hybrid solution offered by 200-year old Ketley Brick came about because they had the foresight to adapt their product offering to enable it to work with intelligently simple 21st century technology such as our Gebrik Brick Cladding System. We wish them every success in the awards and we hope the BDA judges will recognise their achievement.
The awards are being held on Thursday 8th November 2018, at the Hilton Park Lane, London and tickets are on sale here.
