Due to a sharp rise in demand within the construction sector, AG (Acheson + Glover), one of the UK’s leading manufacturers of innovative construction products, is running a newly focused campaign highlighting the benefits of the NovaBrik®, a unique mortarless brick slip system.
The system is unique when compared to other brick cladding systems on the market due to its revolutionary design which removes reliance on wet trades. Another benefit of the product is that installation is not limited to bricklayers; it can be put in place by a wide range of tradesmen such as carpenters and joiners.
The game-changing system is mortarless, making it inherently faster, more flexible and safer when compared to traditional bricklaying methods. An innovative interlocking design prevents water from penetrating the wall from the outside and the mortarless construction promotes air flow in the wall cavity, thus removing any moisture coming from the inside.
The water-absorption of the high-strength concrete composition is less than 5%, ensuring exceptional resistance to freeze-thaw cycles and making it technically as waterproof as a roof tile.
As aesthetically pleasing as it is robust, it is available in a range of rich natural colour blended colours that are produced within the strict controls of a state of the art factory environment. NovaBrik® is designed to meet the highest standards and is fully tested with Fire Rating, Freeze Thaw Resistance and Impact & Abrasion affect. When built in line with AG’s step by step installation guide, Novabrik® has the additional reassuring benefit of coming with a 60 Year Warranty.
Rodney Davidson, Head of Specifications at AG said: “NovaBrik® has proven to be a popular and successful solution across the UK and Ireland due to its unique composition and the ease of installation. It isn’t impacted by even the most extreme weather; doesn’t require a bricklayer; has zero downtime; is fully recyclable and is virtually maintenance free. In the current climate where housing is in short supply, NovaBrik® offers a solution that is incredibly quick to install without compromising on quality.”
The NovaBrik® system is backed up with the support of a highly qualified team of manufacturing and design specialists at AG. From design assistance to installation information, and training – NovaBrik® stands ready to help make your project a success.
AG believes NovaBrik® has the potential to play a crucial role in meeting the UK and Ireland’s acute social housing shortage with specifiers and developers seeking build solutions with the potential to facilitate fast-track, high-quality delivery. However, its potential is not limited to social housing as the product will be equally suitable to traditional housing or commercial build projects.
AG is committed to working in partnership with architects, designers and contractors to develop products that perform better and deliver project vision at a competitive price. www.ag.uk.com
