Description: This program introduces a new Lightweight Insulated Brick Veneer cladding option which is applicable to all construction types and market segments. This lightweight insulated brick veneer integrates the size, shape and scale of traditional clay or thin brick while most importantly retaining the classic and often desired aesthetic appearance of brick.
With the changing IECC energy code criteria emphasizing energy efficient and high-performance building envelop walls through the integration of continuous insulation, it is becoming increasingly more difficult to design, detail, support and install traditional clay and thin brick claddings. New technology such as lightweight insulated veneers can address these many challenges while substantially reducing cost and maintaining desired aesthetic appeal.
