Wienerberger, the UK’s leading manufacturer of wall, roof and landscaping innovations, has announced the launch of a complete brick slip and paver slip solution, as well as a new website to showcase the offer.

The use of brick slips has been a growing trend in the UK for some time, for both internal and external use. Whether they are being used to achieve the desirable look of a real brick finish where the use of full bricks is either not practical or possible, improving the external façade of a building or creating internal feature walls within a residential setting or an exposed brickwork look in a commercial environment, brick slips make it possible to achieve a wide range of styles from traditional to ultra-modern.

But it’s not just the use of brick slips that is a growing trend. More recently we have seen a growing popularity of paver slips. Natural clay paver slips are an increasingly popular flooring solution to add character to internal environments as more designers are looking to ‘bring the outside in’.

Wienerberger’s new brick and paver slips solutions include a wide range of different options in terms of colours, sizes and textures to suit any design style. They are an authentic and easy way to achieve a great looking clay finish to any wall or internal floor.

To support the launch, Wienerberger has also developed an online platform to showcase the offering as well as provide some inspiration to designers. The tool gives users access to interactive functions that allow them to view the slips in use in both residential and commercial settings. Whilst also being able to test out a number of aesthetic combinations to give the user a foresight as to how the brick and paver slips may work with their surrounding environments as well as in contrast with each other. This allows architects and designers to experiment during the design stages of a project to be as bold or traditional as they like.

Richard Brown, Category Manager - Wall at Wienerberger commented:
"We are very excited to be launching our new brick and paver slips offering. We see the use of slips as a growing market that offers a great deal of creative potential for architects and designers. Our market-leading range means that we are able to provide something to suit every design taste. We are also very pleased with our new online tool that has been designed to demonstrate how beautiful brick and paver slips can look both in domestic and non-domestic settings. I would encourage anyone considering designing a project using slips to visit the site and have some fun selecting different slip options in a range of environments to see how the different combinations work together."

The site is now live and can be reached at: http://brickslips.wienerberger.co.uk/
