Brick is beautiful. No matter what style or color it is, it’s simply a timeless material that exudes as much strength as it does elegance. However, traditionally thick brick can be heavy and difficult to use, not to mention costly, which is why brick isn’t really relied upon nearly as often as a lot of people would like – that is, until now of course. Thanks to our EZ Wall® Engineered Thin Brick System at Ambrico, anyone can now enjoy the magnificence of brick anywhere inside or out. Here’s how:
Thin Brick Is Lighter & More Versatile
Compared to a traditional brick, thin bricks are, well, thinner, which means that while traditional brick may weigh as much as 3.8 lbs. a piece, one cut of thin brick weighs only .65 lbs. This of course greatly enhances its versatility and usability as a material. For example, in the past adding a material like brick inside your home would have been thought of as insane given the expense of materials and installing necessary supports, not to mention how much space it would take up. But now, you can finally enjoy brick anywhere, from your porch to your powder room, and everywhere in between!
Thin Brick Is Easier To Install
Between the weight difference and added benefits of our EZ Wall® System, there’s never been a better or easier way to install brick anywhere inside or out of a property. For example, despite its dimensional differences, our EZ Wall® System utilizes a duel weeping mechanism design for superior moisture drainage, full depth mortar joints to ensure durability and longevity, and so much more – which means you never have to worry about compromising quality for convenience no matter where you want to put your brick.
Thin Brick Is More Cost Effective
With less weight to account for, no special clips or other supports to worry about, and its greener manufacturing process, thin brick is definitely more cost effective all around. The fact that its made from 40-100% recycled materials, and requires 80% less embodied energy to create means than the actual products you’re purchasing cost significantly less than traditional brick. Furthermore, with thin brick, you’re getting much more for your money. In fact, while the weight and dimensions of traditional brick may have allowed you to only transport up to 1,600 sq. ft. of materials at a time, with thin brick you can easily move more than 9,500 sq. ft. in one truck load – making it the truly superior material!
