leading design service and fully comprehensive technical support.

Brick Slip Product Range

Brick Feature Lintels

Brick Slip Feature Lintels offer a unique addition to IG’s brickwork support systems. This one piece unit arrives onsite with the bricks, which have been collected from site, bonded to the load bearing lintel. This eliminates the need for a specialist brickwork contractor spending hours onsite, cutting bricks to suit complex brick details.

Lightweight Brick Headers

Brick Slip Lightweight Brick Headers are installed on the outer leaf of a standard lintel. These lightweight products are manufactured offsite negating the need for brick cutting or mechanical handling onsite. Bricks are collected from site to ensure that the product blends seamlessly with traditionally laid brickwork.

Lightweight Brick Sills

A perfect addition to Brick Slip Lightweight Brick Headers are Lightweight Brick Sills. Manufactured offsite, these sills are positioned underneath the window sill, supported by the wall panel below. Lightweight Brick Sills are delivered to site with bricks bonded ready for final pointing and are tied back to inner leaf blockwork for added stability.
