Developed in response to a demand for a brick cladding solution, for use with mineral-fibre based insulation systems, StoBrick gives architects a far greater opportunity to incorporate genuine clay brick finishes into their façade designs, achieving the required A2-s1, d0 fire rating with the wide range of textures, colours and sizes available.
The market has shifted back to the traditional brick design for facades while wanting to maintain the benefits of an EWI system. Clients, Architects and local authority planners alike can continue to benefit from Sto's full system solutions, with no limitations using our brick cladding solution StoBrick, allowing the possibility of a traditional brick character and individuality to buildings.
In the case of new buildings, the combination of a facade insulation system with clay brick slips allows for significantly slimmer wall cross-sections than the traditional cavity wall construction method, which consumes expensive floor space, especially in inner-city locations.
There are three types of StoBrick available - Hand-moulded, Water-struck and Extruded. Between them they provide a huge range of options, covering all requirements, from surface structures which provide maximum visual impact, through to those where a more uniform and consistent brick appearance is required.
A comprehensive range of more than 50 formats, 10 surface textures and 200 colour variants are available, allowing the architect creative freedom to reproduce all the traditional brick architecture styles found throughout the UK, and more diverse laying patterns and different joint designs. StoBrick is also fully accredited to the A2-s1, d0 fire safety standard.
