Our Eco Glazed Brick Slip range is produced from recycled Welsh slate dust. These are fired to form 215x65x15mm brickslips which are then glazed and re-fired to produce durable and highly decorative products for external and internal applications.

Not everyone has heard of the term ‘brick slips’, but chances are they have seen them hundreds of times in homes, shops and restaurants without even realising. In order to create striking interior or exterior architectural finishes, very thin facings of brick or glazed tile are frequently used. These are applied to a wall in order to produce a high quality brick or tiled wall finish. 

As these thin surface facings are lighter and cheaper to produce and use than to create using solid blocks, they are an extremely popular building and design option with architects and specifiers alike. 

While standard thin slips of brick are widely available for the purpose of giving the effect of more expensive exterior bricks, the versatility of these products does not end here. Glazed brick slip tiles are particularly useful type of brick slip, and are very interesting from a design perspective as have the added advantage of a wide colour range, as well as a smooth, lustrous surface finish.

Brick Slip Tiles

PROJECT : Joule’s Brewery, Market Drayton

A tiling project undertaken for the Joule’s Brewery. As a maker of traditional ales, Joule’s brand values focus on Old English style pubs. They state that “pubs which have served communities for centuries, which connect us to our fellow countrymen, and also to our past, a reminder of simpler times and the bonds we share.” Heritage and traditional values are an essential element of their brand and they chose to use our eco glazed brick slip tiles in conjunction with bare brick to convey that mood within their interior design.
