What is Brick Inlay?
Brick inlay is an innovative facade solution that speeds construction time and significantly reduces construction costs, while still enabling you to deliver award winning, architecturally creative cladding solutions.
Brick inlay is a reliable and proven facade system. It involves placing thin brick, porcelain or stone tiles into precast concrete panels, to create the look and feel of a traditional brick facade or wall with all the efficiencies and benefits of precast concrete. Best of all, brick inlay enables you to customise any pattern and texture you need for your facade efficiently and cost-effectively.

How will you benefit by using Brick Inlay?
A structurally sound facade – the bond of thin brick (or stone) and concrete is permanent and structurally superior to traditional brick
Enjoy custom designed brick facades - we will work with you to customise a brick facade to suit your needs - including curved brick facades, custom corners and specialty designs
Unlimited design choices for your brick facade - you can use a variety of speciality thin brick, porcelain or stone colours and textures. Plus our brick inlay system enables you to create any pattern to suit your design - from arches and headers, to radius and multiple coursing patterns.
Reduced brick facade construction time - brick inlay panels are made offsite ready to install. They're light weight and easy to install, so construction time on site is much faster.
Extremely cost-effective brick facade solution - there is no need for additional labour on site to install the panels, they're installed much faster, and our brick inlay panels are low maintenance.
Construction site efficiency - brick inlay panels enable easier site management because there's no need for sand, mortar or mixers on site
Consistent quality brick facades - brick inlay is ideal for repeat panels whose formliner can remain attached to the form table
Variety of brick inlay applications - brick inlay is used for variety of project types, including pre-cast, tilt-up or cast in place
Excellent durability of your brick facade - brick inlay comes with colour fast, stain resistant, durable finishes, and there is no efflorescence.
Simplified engineering in building your brick facade - there are no flashing, lintels or weep cavities
