What are brick slips?

Wall cladding is becoming more and more popular in homes and businesses alike, and the best way of doing so is by using the right slips for the look that you need. Wall cladding is a technique used to help change the look of a wall – internal or external – by using brick faces, or slips, to create a rustic or homely feel. Brick slip cladding can help transform the atmosphere of a coffee shop or restaurant, or can bring a rustic touch to a feature wall or fireplace in any home. Brick slips for fireplace installations, as it happens, are particularly growing in trend.

reclaimed brick slips

Reclaimed

Reclaimed slips are sourced from authentic bricks that may once have been part of houses or public buildings that have been demolished – meaning that they are arguably the most authentic if you are looking to recreate period brickwork or create a genuinely rustic atmosphere. These are particularly popular with shopfitters, coffee shops and even certain retail stores, used to bring a homely touch to any commercial enterprise. We ensure that we use sympathetically salvaged slips so that we can recycle material responsibly – but it’s worth bearing in mind that reclaimed slips can vary in size, shape and colour due to the nature of their sources.
