MechSlip Brick Cladding System

MechSlip is a unique brick cladding innovation developed by market leaders Ash & Lacey and Ibstock Kevington, which enables architects and specifiers to achieve natural, through-coloured brick facades with the inspired efficiency and versatility of a mechanically-fixed brick slip cladding system.

Primarily available in a wide range of Ibstock brick finishes cut and grooved to produce slips with a robust, anchored profile, MechSlip is a non-combustible, durable and lightweight system consisting of 6063T6 grade aluminium support rails. It has been robustly tested and meets the rigorous weathertightness standards set by the Centre for Window and Cladding Technology (CWCT) and is registered for BBA certification in 2020.
