“If a homeowner desires an interior brick wall to bring added warmth to an area such as a kitchen or family room, ThinBRIK offer a number of benefits,” said Acme’s Vice-President of Marketing, Bill Seidel. “In this situation with an existing structure, Acme ThinBRIK go up quickly with little disruption to the homeowner’s activities and, because of ThinBRIK’s light weight, no additional wall support is required.”
ThinBRIK uses a wall system that consists of lightweight metal panels where bricks are adhered with adhesive and then are secured with traditional mortar. Typically an interior residential application, such as a contrasting wall, can be installed in one or two days.
In commercial applications, Acme’s new ThinBRIK offers similar benefits and even greater savings. For commercial jobs heavy-duty panels are used. These panels are tested to 400’ high at wind loads of 150 mph. This product can be used to greatly enhance a building’s exterior façade at a competitive price.
ThinBRIK is available in a wide color palette and available nationwide. The brick are modular in size at: 2-1/4" x 7-5/8" face size, thickness is 1/2".
