Innovative and Lightweight Brick Cladding Enhanced by the Natural-X Cladding System

NaturAL-X is a unique and innovative, lightweight brick cladding system, developed by market leaders Ash & Lacy to enable architects and specifiers to achieve a non-combustible, through-coloured brick facade with the inspired efficiency and versatility of a mechanically-fixed brick slip cladding system. Providing an extra layer to any property, NaturAL-X makes a fantastic choice for insulated cladding, trapping warm air in the desired property and keeping energy costs down.

Featuring purpose-made, extruded clay brick slips and 6063T6-grade aluminium support rails, NaturAL-X is a robust, lightweight, non-combustible cladding system, available in a limited range of colours and textures, multi-patterns, and surface textures. It has been robustly tested to meet the rigorous weather tightness standards set by the Centre for Window and Cladding Technology (CWCT) and was awarded BBA certificate number 20/5773 in 2020, making this the ideal rainscreen brick cladding system for your facade.
