  • 23 Feb 2024

Wetherby Building Systems Ltd, a leading provider of innovative External Wall Insulation (EWI) solutions, is thrilled to announce the introduction of its new KIWA BDA-accredited Wetherby Acrylic Brick Slip System, offering flexible design choices, easy application, and approved for use on multiple building types, including high-rise.

The Acrylic Brick Slip System is a remarkable combination of lightweight, flexibility, and durability, meticulously crafted to replicate the charm of classic brickwork. With a slim design of just 4mm thickness and weighing a mere 4kg/m2, the Acrylic Slips present an appealing alternative to traditional brick.

Its flexibility allows for easy application on curved substrates, adapting effortlessly to any architectural vision. The unique adhesive background also ensures impeccable pointing mortar, creating a flawless finish.

Versatility is the cornerstone of the Wetherby Acrylic Brick Slip System, as it is approved for various substrate types, including Masonry, Steel Frame, and Timber Frame structures.


Each system approval incorporates superior thermal benefits of ROCKWOOL Stone Wool insulation. Achieving an A2-s1,d0 fire rating according to BS EN 13501-1, the slips can be installed on buildings of any height, without restrictions.

Rigorous testing

Boasting a minimum life expectancy of 30 years and Category 1 impact resistance, Acrylic Brick Slips have undergone rigorous testing and certification by Wetherby.

This accreditation ensures that the decorative finishes meet or exceed the highest quality standards, rendering them resilient against even the harshest environmental conditions. Architects and specifiers can now achieve stunning visual appeal while ensuring the longevity and strength of the construction.

The Wetherby Acrylic Brick Slip System offers an extensive colour range, encompassing standard brick and adhesive colours, with the option to request additional brick colours to suit individual preferences.

‘A cost-effective option’

Joe Ragdale, Technical Director at Wetherby Building Systems Ltd, says: “At Wetherby, we are committed to continuous development and innovation in order to provide cutting-edge solutions for our diverse markets. We are particularly thrilled to showcase our latest offering, the Wetherby Acrylic Brick Slip System, certified onto Stone Wool insulation. This system offers a cost-effective option for a wide range of sectors, including high-rise buildings and the modular market.”

“One of the standout features of our Acrylic Brick Slip systems is their versatility. They can be installed on buildings of any height, with a superior fire rating of A2-s1,d0 to BS EN 13501-1.

“This makes them suitable for even the tallest high-rise projects we work on. Additionally, the system saves valuable time by allowing for quick and easy installation and pointing using the adhesive, eliminating the need for a separate application.

“This not only reduces installation costs but also ensures a robust Cat I impact performance and a durable, long-lasting finish that replicates the appearance of traditional brickwork.

“Notably, we have certified the Acrylic Brick Slips onto Stone Wool insulation for various substrates, including masonry, timber frame, and steel frame.
