On construction projects, tight deadlines are always an issue. Often, long lead times just won’t work and anxiously waiting for a material is never a good thing. Sometimes delays can’t be helped but as the old saying goes, “time is money.” With the METROBRICK Fast Ship Offering It’s nice to know there is one product you can count on when the clock is ticking.

METROBRICK thin brick is extruded, kiln fired, low absorption brick. Visit the Metropolitan Ceramics website to learn more about the Fast Ship offering and their other fine quarry tile and paving tile products. www.metroceramics.com

Metropolitan Ceramics Offers Thin Brick

June 4, 2018|In Thin Brick|Ron WilliamsonBy Ron Williamson|2 Minutes

Thin brick presents a number of advantages when compared to the use of full bed brick. The natural resources/energy saved in production, shipping, and construction are prime examples. And thin brick can be installed around the home or business using tile setting methods. With thin brick, you can quickly and easily add a real brick veneer virtually anywhere. Metropolitan Ceramics now includes two thin brick lines in its product offering.

Royal Thin Brick (left) and METROBRICK Fast Ship (right) are two excellent options for creating a brick installation with thin brick using tile set methods. Both are now available from Metropolitan Ceramics.

Royal Thin Brick is a tumbled product, giving each brick a unique worn and distressed appearance. The bricks are Queen Size (2 3/4″ x 7 5/8″) – taller than modular brick for a more robust look.

A brick accent wall, kitchen back-splash, or fireplace surround are some examples. Royal can be used indoors and out for both floors and walls.
