Brick Slip Systems Training Course Overview Image

On the morning of this Brick Slip Systems course, you’ll learn why brick slip systems are considered as a preferred modern brick facade choice compared to traditional cladding methods, as well as how the latest innovations and technologies allow for their use in buildings over 18m in height. You’ll become familiar with their components and some of the different mechanically fixed and adhesive fixed brick slip systems you’ll come across on site. You’ll also learn about how to read manufacturers’ specifications and drawings, the tools required for their installation, plus a review of the traditional over-cladding method involving cutting brick slips on site.

The afternoon session of the course will be spent installing a modular brick slip system to a steel-framed structure, under instruction from your expert Brickwork Trainer.
