Precast Brick Manufacturing Process

TM Precast Brick Manufacturing Process

Precast concrete with bonded brickwork is often used to create complex wall cladding features such as arches, lintels and deep brickwork soffits. These products allow for creative designs and building features to be built in brickwork which otherwise would have been impossible in these parts of the building.

A dovetail cut is made into the rear of a brick, and the units are then laid face down into a mould and concrete is then poured over the rear of the bricks forming a totally mechanical key. Components can be manufactured and supplied up to 10m in length, and can be CAD designed with structural drawings to support your building concept.

Bonded components are generally available with much shorter lead in times. Brick slips are cut and then chemically bonded to concrete and alternative backing units to produce a wide variety of structural and non-structural components. This method of construction also allows design freedom for brickwork and its use in different areas of a building.
