Thin Brick is brick which is thinner than standard size brick. The brick is sometimes sliced from traditionally made brick or moulded in thin brick moulds. Tru-Brix sliced the brick from real handmade or extruded brick. The brick are sliced by saw to fit tight into steel rail which hold the brick securely to the wall until mortar can be placed in between the brick. Once the brick and mortar have been completed, the look is no different than traditionally layed brick.
Thin Brick made by Tru-brix has been used to replace vinyl, aluminum, block, and wood siding on both residential and commercial buildings.
