Sahara Face Brick Tiles
What, with so many different types of wall brick cladding available, constitutes quality thin brick? Quality thin brick is a versatile product made from the best raw materials available. It is made “thin” to eliminate unnecessary waste. And, like the face brick it is imitating, quality thin brick is ceramic and hard fired in kilns.
Brick Tile Shop manufactures a truly quality Face Brick Tile, made from natural clay and shale mined nearby. Because it is real, the finished product looks and feels real. The bricks are extruded in the same way as full brick, only thinner, and fired at high temperatures in tunnel kilns. They are hard fired, making them suitable for use both indoors and outdoors in any climate.
The face brick tile range from Brick Tile Shop can be used on almost any wall that has been properly prepared to accept wall brick cladding. The wall does not need to be load bearing, as full-size brick requires. A thin brick finish requires no demolition and only minor additional construction. Face brick tiles from Brick Tile Shop require less raw material and energy to achieve the same look as a full thickness brick wall.
About Brick Tiles
Manufactured in South-Africa, our clay bricks are fired in a clamp kiln, through a process that is unique to Africa.
Extremely durable, clay face bricks are cut into 9mm slices, these we call brick tiles or brick slips, that is then used for cladding.
When the clamp kiln is unpacked, the various colors are classified and sorted into a pre-determined color range, ranging through purple, dark red, and then to yellow, brown and even red borders with black streaks inside.
Face bricks similar in color range are stacked into a tile cutting machine where several diamond blades will cut the bricks into brick tiles. With this process, we exposes the earthy beauty colors hidden inside the face bricks.
No brick tile is identical to the other, however a certain range of bricks tiles will render a arm age of similar colors, rendering a cone of a kind tiled wall with an aesthetic and unique, earthy appearance
