Insulated brick cladding

X Clad and P Clad External Insulated Cladding Systems are an insulated clay brick slip system for use as protective/decorative cladding with or without a cavity over solid masonry, timber-and steel-frame and masonry external walls in new and existing domestic and non-domestic buildings.

I Clad Internal Cladding System is a gypsum plasterboard used with clay brick slip facings for use as non-structural, decorative cladding for internal walls of timber and steel-frame construction above the damp-proof course in domestic and non-domestic buildings.

The Eurobrick Insulated Brick Cladding System, which is LABC Registered, can be used above and below the damp-proof course if suitable brick slips and mortars are specified in accordance with the certificate holder’s advice to resist the higher moisture levels. LABC has assessed that the system will improve the weather resistance and reduce thermal transmission of a wall and provide a decorative finish.

However, it may only be installed where other routes for moisture penetration have been dealt with separately and where dampness, other than that caused solely by condensation, is not evident on the inner surface of the wall. The system can also contribute to minimising condensation on internal wall surfaces.

Cladding on Property next door to myself.

Submitted 1 year 4 months ago

Property next to mine was cladded some years ago.
We share an ‘Entry’.
I have noticed damp areas in my parlour and shed, both areas adjacent to our shared entry.
I wonder if this is as a result of the cladding/ v non cladding imbalance within the entry area,(moisture imbalance).
This has only occurred since the cladding was installed and wonder if you have received any similar enquiries?

Hi, thanks for your comment.

For this specific issue regarding damp in the area it would be best to discuss with your local building control team. You can find their details by entering the postcode of your property in the 'find your council' bar at the top of our website.

Regards,

LABC
