Keystone Lintels is now offering customers complex brick detailing with offsite quality as part of its Keyslip range.
The range allows house builders to explore intricate brick features with the simplicity of a one-piece solution that can be consistently reproduced across developments. Any unique requirements can be met as every product in the Keyslip range is manufactured to order.
Keystone offers an offsite solution for an extensive range of brick slip installations including arches, panels, soffits and architectural features, enabling unique and intricate detailing work to be carried out in a factory controlled environment.
Each Keyslip unit is produced using bricks from the same batch as those laid onsite and is tailored to suit the client’s design and fixed to Keystone’s structural steel elements.
Derrick McFarland, Managing Director for Keystone Lintels, explains: “These products utilise a highly labour efficient production technique, the result of which is a superior quality finish. This corresponds with a strong use of brick by architects and developers, both of whom require high-quality finishes. Ranging from simple lightweight brick headers to highly intricate arches and ornate brickwork over openings, the Keyslip range provides a solution to a variety of brickwork requirements.”
Keystone’s patented design uses a BBA certified adhesive which interacts with a perforated steel backing plate forming a strong mechanical bond with the brick slips. The bonding process occurs in optimum controlled conditions free from wet weather, extreme temperature and excessive dust.
