Thin Brick And Tilt-Up Construction
METROBRICK® Thin Brick is used by tilt-up contractors to create an authentic kiln-fired finish on their tilt-up projects.
Architects know tilt-up offers many advantages, including cost savings and expedited construction. When designers include METROBRICK® as part of the tilt-up wall system, they add the appeal of brick to their project.
METROBRICK is a TBX Grade Architectural Thin Brick to ensure a snug fit in form liners. METROBRICK is also available with a waxed surface. Adding wax to METROBRICK thin brick aids in protecting the thin brick during the tilt-up installation process. For proper wax removal and best results, be sure to follow METROBRICK’s wax removal guidelines.
All METROBRICK products meet the standards required for tilt-up construction. In addition, the bricks are tested for efflorescence, chipping, size, warpage and freeze-thaw and undergo other essential tests to ensure success.
METROBRICK is available in a variety of single-tone colors and range colors. Custom blending is also available. Use our online Blend Generator to find the perfect combination. Choose from multiple textures and sizes, all designed to meet the needs of tilt-up construction.
METROBRICK® products meet or exceed all thin brick standards used in tilt-up construction and are designed with a dovetail back and strict size tolerances for superior installation and bond performance.
