METROBRICK Architectural Thin Brick Accent Ideas
Including accents in a METROBRICK® thin brick wall is a great way to add interest.
It could be a band of color, a different texture, a change in pattern or any combination of these used to create an accent in a thin brick wall. And because of the characteristics of thin brick it is easier to create these eye catching additions than with traditional brick.
Accents in thin brick can be used to break up spacing in a wall, add a design element, or create a focal point. Whatever the reason for adding an accent to thin brick, there is no doubt they can change a simple brick wall into something extraordinary.
Below are a few examples of the type of accents that can be created. Obviously, these are just a few and only scratches the surface of what is possible using METROBRICK® thin brick.
METROBRICK® Architectural Thin Brick is type TBX thin brick designed to be used where precise sizing is required. METROBRICK® is a true kiln fired thin brick made to stringent guidelines making it suitable for use in precast, tilt-up, field applied and direct applied brick veneer applications.
METROBRICK® thin brick is 5/8 thick in comparison to the 4 thickness of a standard facing brick. The use of METROBRICK® thin brick presents a number of advantages when compared to the use of full bed brick. The natural resources and energy saved in production, shipping and construction and the insulation capabilities of a building system incorporating thin brick are prime examples.
METROBRICK® is available in a wide range of color options, finishes, and sizes. Custom blending of colors is also available. A selection of colors is available as an inventoried product for immediate shipment.
METROBRICK® Architectural Thin Brick meets and exceeds all Precast/Prestressed Concrete Institute Standards for Thin Brick. By meeting the standards set forth by the PCI, METROBRICK® is shown to be manufactured to a standard vital to the success of thin brick cast in concrete. Many thin bricks and face-cut full bricks being manufactured today cannot meet these rigorous criteria.
METROBRICK® is manufactured by Ironrock, centrally located in Canton, Ohio USA. Ironrocks history of manufacturing exceptional ceramic tile and brick products dates back to 1866.
