Wallclad Metal Sheet
A metal sheet can be used as a supporting frame for a brick slip cladding system. The metal sheet is typically installed over the building’s exterior insulation system or directly onto the building’s substrate. The brick slips are then installed onto the metal sheet using a suitable adhesive.
When using a metal sheet on the substrate, it is important to ensure that the substrate is plumb and suitable, this includes cleaning the surface of any debris or contaminants and ensuring that the surface is level and flat. And the substrate should be structurally sound to receive the brick slips load along with the wind loads. The type of metal sheet used for brick slip cladding will depend on the specific requirements of the project. Commonly used materials include galvanized steel, aluminium, and stainless steel.
When installing a metal sheet for a brick slip cladding system, it is important to follow the manufacturer’s installation instructions and any relevant building codes or regulations. It is also important to ensure that the installation is carried out by a qualified and experienced contractor to ensure the safety and durability of the cladding system.
