Eurobrick specialise in brick and stone slip cladding systems and was the first to introduce a comprehensively designed system to the UK in 1990. Since then, Eurobrick has continued to develop new systems to meet the changing demands of the market and is the UK’s leading specialist for brick and stone slip cladding, including external wall insulation (EWI) and is one of the largest stockists of brick slips. X-Clad, P-Clad and I-Clad are BBA Certified and also LABC Registered. Eurobrick is an ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015 accredited company.
Eurobrick’s brick slip faced cladding provides the real look, feel and durability of traditional masonry with the benefit of being extremely versatile and quick to install. The cladding has a broad range of applications, including new build, modular and refurbishment of commercial and domestic buildings. It can be installed both internally and externally to most construction types.
A lightweight system for finishing new build structures up to 18m in height. The extruded, closed cell polystyrene backer panel is an excellent insulator and is available in different thicknesses making X-Clad ideal for retrofitting to existing buildings too. It will significantly increase the energy efficiency of a building and reduce heating bills. Project specific U-Value calculations are available upon request.
Developed for interior applications, I-Clad has a plasterboard backer panel. Suitable for both commercial and domestic interiors, the slim line profile of I-Clad minimises the loss of valuable floor space.
Designed with new build projects in mind where there is no requirement for insulation. P-Clad is rigid, making it the ideal sheathing for a building and it has been certified for installation on some buildings over 18m high. Contact Eurobrick for details of tested construction designs.
V-Clad is a brick faced external wall insulation (EWI) system suitable for new build and retrofit projects, and can be used internally as well as externally. V-Clad is an expanded polystyrene panel, with a ribbed profile for easy installation of the brick slips.
HOW THE SYSTEMS WORK
Eurobrick systems are quick and simple to install. Each system has a specially developed backer panel, which is supplied (pre-laminated) with a vacuum formed polystyrene skin bonded to it (with the exception of V-Clad, see above). The skin has moulded horizontal tracks between which the brick or stone slips are glued. To complete the installation, Eurobrick’s Europoint pointing mortar is piped into the joints and tooled to achieve a traditional masonry finish.
For information regarding installation, please refer to the system specific installation guides, view the installation video or call Eurobrick’s Technical Department.
The cladding systems are supplied as a kit of parts, comprising product backer panel, panel fasteners, adhesive, straight brick slips and Europoint mortar. Corner brick slips, base trim, expansion rod filler and other accessories to help with application are as extras.

Eurobrick Systems - IN & OUT AT STARBUCKS
We have recently been supplying various contractors, including Trojan Construction Management, with our X-Clad system, as part of their work on Starbucks expansion programme across the UK.
We supplied our cladding materials for a number of new drive-through stores. Two of these are located at Hadley in Telford and Weston-super-Mare, where Trojan installed our systems as a decorative feature both inside and outside the store.
Across both of these stores we provided around 120m² of our X-Clad system, along with specially sourced bricks and bricks from our Britannia range. We are currently working with Trojan on an additional three Starbucks stores throughout the UK.
Industrial Contracting Services – Village Green Medical Centre
When the Village Green Medical Centre was built in 1994 at Great Denham near Bedford they wanted to use a modular building system to take advantage of the speed of construction benefits. The planning authorities agreed, on the condition that the building would eventually be over clad with a finish that would blend in with the surrounding residential area. The original exterior cladding of the building became aged and so the time came to replace it.
The client chose Eurobrick’s P-Clad system for the ground floor and this was complemented by a low maintenance timber effect system to the first floor. Installation was carried out by our approved installer Industrial Contracting Services (ICS) based in Derby. They installed circa 315m² of P-Clad with Rustic Inferno Multi slips and corners with a Smooth Brown plinth detail to the ground floor. Combined with the timber effect cladding, the overall finish has rejuvenated the exterior and has extended the building’s lifespan.
It was important that the busy doctors’ surgery remained fully open during the project with no disruption to patients. The contract was completed in 6 weeks using an innovative mixture of access solutions as well as out of hours working, programmed to minimise disruption to patients.
Paul Fereday of ICS commented,
“The overall finish has given this modular building a new lease of life with an appearance that blends in well with the surrounding new residential
development. Towards the end of the project many of the people visiting the medical centre commented on how much the appearance had improved.”
The client was pleased with the job and commented how quickly and efficiently ICS delivered the project, especially whilst working in a live environment and minimising disruption to the medical centre and people using it. ICS have been a Eurobrick approved installer for 10 years and specialise in modular buildings. Over that time they have installed our systems to numerous projects.
