Vetabric is the thinnest brick slip cladding solution with an adaptable insulated backing panel. Offering a huge range of brick colours and texture options, Vetabric is a lightweight rigid solution, making it easy to install in all weather conditions.
Vetabric offers cut sections of brick or ‘slips’ as they are known, bonded at high temperatures to a fire resistant backing panel. The complete system includes cladding panels in flat or return pieces, fixings, starter profiles and end profiles, with a wide choice of different mortar types to acheive the required aesthetic finish.
A Guaranteed Effect
The extensive range of structures and colours in the VETAbric range, combined with every shade of grout imaginable, makes it possible to achieve a multitude of combinations in order to obtain the desired effect.
A minimal space requirement
The core component is the standard panel measuring approximately 0.43 m² and weighing only 12 kg, its thickness reduced to the strict minimum necessary: just 2.5 cm (like all the other components in the VETAbric range).
The fineness of the components enables numerous configurations in terms of construction and insulation. VETAbric can be installed by itself on a façade, without any loss of depth, or can be combined with any type of insulation that has certification from the ACERMI (French Association for the Certification of Insulating Materials) and EC certification, iSole ranking: minimum I3S1O2L2E1 (thermal, sound, mineral or natural), of varying thicknesses depending on the requirements.
The VETAbric range features nearly forty components which enable (nearly) every known scenario in terms of façade decoration to be carried out and an infinite number of new possibilities to be thought up. Customized components can also be designed and manufactured.
Subject to Technical Opinions and to the “CSTB Certified” certification (managed by the CSTB; the French Building Sciences and Technologies Centre). All the manufactured products are covered by a ten-year insurance policy taken out with AXA.
Replicate existing Features
Cast stone weathers in the same way as natural stone, there is no problem with installing new cast stone units alongside existing natural stone. Cast stone therefore be used during the refurbishment of older properties or for extensions or alterations.
Standard colours are available to match natural stone such as York stone, Bathstone, Red Sandstone or Portland stone, while non-standard colours can also be produced to meet a client’s specific requirements.
Added value & Style to Prestigious Developments
Recent surveys have indicated that cast stone makes residential developments more attractive to prospective purchasers to the extent that they would be prepared to pay significantly more for a property with cast stone exterior features than they would for a comparable property without them. And because the cast stone features add almost nothing to the build cost, such as arches, balustrades, bullseyes, copings, cornices, porticos, steps and window and door surrounds can be selected from a catalogue or manufactured to an architect’s design. Cast stone is a very effective way to add style to prestigious developments.
Cost effective and Efficient
Cast stone is extremely cost-effective in comparison with natural quarried stone, especially where repetitive work is concerned or where standard items are specified from a supplier’s catalogue.
Quality consistency / Reduce Project Risk
Because cast stone is manufactured in a factory environment in accordance with strict quality assurance procedures and under closely controlled conditions, a very consistent quality of colour and finish is assured – all of which helps to reduce project risk and keep schedules on target.
