The Keystone Keyslip Brick Details range enables complex brickwork detail to be carried out away from the building site in a controlled factory environment.

Keystone offers a technically advanced, offsite solution for an extensive range of brick slip installations, including arches, panels and architectural features. 

Brick is enjoying a resurgence in British architecture at a time of skills shortages on building sites. The Keyslip Brick Details range, which consists of Brick Slip Feature Lintels and Lightweight Brick Headers and Sills, enables intricate brickwork detail to be carried out in a factory-controlled environment instead.

Keystone offers a bespoke design service, developing unique solutions to complicated brickwork over openings. Every Brick Slip Feature Lintel is manufactured to order with each individual unit customised according to the unique size, shape and aesthetic requirements of the project. Offsite construction allows genuine character details to be added without significant cost increases.

Bespoke Keyslip products are used frequently in refurbishment and new-build ‘heritage’ projects, but the same process can also be used to deliver contemporary brick detailing. Keystone combines structural expertise with its patented brick slip adhesion process to produce incredibly effective brick detail.

Each Brick Slip Feature unit is produced using exactly the same brick from the main project in a factory setting, offering more control over visual quality than brickwork built on site. This eliminates the need for a specialist brickwork contractor to spend hours on-site, cutting bricks to suit complicated structural openings. The finished Brick Slip Feature Lintel joins seamlessly with the surrounding brickwork.  

Brick Slip Feature Lintels can accommodate a large range of bond patterns and, with segmental arches, flat arches, gothic and parabolic arches as well as apex arches and bullseyes, the possibilities are endless.
