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.

Eurocbrick - Latest Installer Project: Hessel Street, London – LB&F
The corner site on Hessel Street, London was a challenge for all involved, with this project to build a new 5 storey mixed use building. Located in a dense urban area, there was very limited space on site and restrictions in place to minimise disruption to neighbouring residents and businesses.
The development comprises 1 commercial unit and 8 residential units. The external wall façade was recently completed by Eurobrick approved installer, LB&F who installed circa 460m² of the P-Clad system. P-Clad was developed by Eurobrick to provide a brick slip faced external sheathing on buildings. With a panel thickness of 10mm, the entire system depth starts from just 25mm and on tight sites, space savings are very important. The speed of installation was also a benefit to this development, as it was important to keep the construction schedule as short as possible.
LB&F has been installing Eurobrick’s systems since 2008 and has completed many projects. Specialist installers of external facades, Dan Lear, director says “Over the years, we’ve installed several different brick slip systems, but in my opinion, Eurobrick is the best, for quality, ease of installation and service”.
Eurobrick continue serving McDonald’s
Thirty years after we first supplied McDonald’s Restaurants and its contractors with our market leading X-Clad system, and more than 900 stores later, we continue to provide our brick slip systems for the latest rollout of new restaurant designs across the UK.
The new store designs are for both single and two-storey factory built modular buildings with a contemporary palette of mixed finishes. Our brick slip system is usually installed off-site before the modules are then transported to site and craned into position. X-Clad has a long track record, having been installed on modular buildings since we first introduced it to the UK over thirty years ago. Quick and easy to install, lightweight, robust and maintenance free, it is proven as a reliable and trusted product.
Stores recently completed by DSM Roofing, include examples of the new single and two storey designs at Falkirk and Welshpool respectively. In these instances, we supplied 50mm thick X-Clad and Smooth Anthracite slips and corners from our Britannia range creating a striking contrast with the timber cladding.
DSM Roofing has completed over thirty new restaurants in the past 18 months, including the one at Oakham in Rutland, which made the news as being the last county in the UK to open a McDonald’s. Eurobrick supplied Bradstone Rough Dressed Cotswold stone slips and corners in mixed sizes and 17mm thick X-Clad system, along with whole Rough Dressed Cotswold blocks for the boundary wall.
Dean Foulkes, director of DSM Roofing said “We have worked with Eurobrick for over 10 years and in that time have completed a great number of projects including several key McDonald’s stores which required unusual materials, such as natural stone and bespoke brick slips. The programme to rollout new McDonald’s stores all over the UK has progressed well and Eurobrick have helped achieve this with excellent service and always doing everything possible to keep projects on track.”
