MechSlip: real brick cut downs going up on 3 new buildings

A2O have been an early adopter of this new and very popular rainscreen system. We are currently installing MechSlip at 30 Station Road, Cambridge; Crawley Civic Offices and Thurrock Civic Centre. Mechslip is an A1 fire-rated brick slip system and contains no combustible parts. It is made from real bricks and is available in over 300 Ibstock brick finishes. A brick skin is cut from the faces of a brick with grooves to mount into an aluminium support system. Installation is possible from mast climbers, thereby removing the need for scaffolding and associated costs. MechSlip was first launched less than 3 years ago.
