What is Brickweb® Thin Brick?

 

Brickweb is an award winning - patented thin brick product made from the highest quality real, cut, kiln-fired clay brick. A full piece of brick is cut to approximately ½ inch thick. Several thin bricks are pre-mounted on a durable, fire resistant, fiberglass mesh with the brick already laid out and aligned for quick and easy installation. Brickweb is the easiest and fastest method available to install thin brick for interiors or exteriors. ​

 

Brickweb is available in pre-assembled flat sheets and corner sheets, with 12 color blends to choose from. The primary 8 color blends are made from "tumbled brick", having a classic old world, aged, or weathered look and feel. The 4 other color blends are commonly known as "straight brick", and are made from the same brick but are not tumbled and provide a more uniform (flat and straight) appearance with less color and texture variation.

How do I install Brickweb Thin Brick?​ Brickweb is quick and easy to install. It is similar to installing tile. ​ There are 4 simple steps to follow:​ 1. Apply adhesive to substrate (wall, surface, etc.) using a 1/4 inch notch trawl. 2. Begin the layout process by applying Brickweb outer corner sheets first. Press on each brick firmly allowing the adhesive to penetrate through the webbing onto the brick. 3. Next, apply Brickweb flat sheets. Overlap brick onto the exposed webbing and space evenly. Press each brick firmly into the adhesive. Allow to set for approximately 24 hours. 4. Apply grout using a grout bag or tile grout float. Once the grout is stiff to the touch (but not dry), finish grout using a tool and/or wet sponge smoothing grout lines and removing excess grout. ​ For installation diagram and a YouTube tutorial video click here. ​

 

What Type of Adhesive Should I Use To Adhere the Brickweb?​ • For an interior application over a substrate such as drywall, Sheetrock, or plaster (painted or unpainted), you can use a standard pre-mixed tile mastic. It is usually white and comes premixed in a bucket and can be purchased from your local hardware store in the tile department.

 

• For an interior application over a substrate such as cement, backer-board, or other cement-like surfaces, use a tile thin-set adhesive. Thin-set adhesive is typically sold in a powder form and requires water and thorough mixing using a drill and mixing drill bit. Thin-set can be purchased from your local hardware store in the tile department.

 

• For an exterior application over a substrate such as cement, backer-board or other like surfaces, use a tile tin-set adhesive. Thin-set adhesive is sold in a powder form and requires water and thorough mixing using a drill and mixing drill bit. Thin-set can be purchased from your local hardware store in the tile department. Some hardware stores also sell a pre-mixed tile thin-set.

 

• Do not use tile mastic to adhere Brickweb directly to a wooden surface. A special polymer fortified tile thin-set adhesive is now available that can be used over a wood surface to adhere Brickweb to wood such as plywood, OSB, etc. The recommended brand is VersaBond Fortified Thin Set Mortar, and it can be purchased at your local hardware store in a bag in the tile department.

 

• Typical brick mortar such as type "S" or type "N" is not recommended to adhere Brickweb, it is too thick and will not press through the webbing adequately reaching the brick surface. ​

 

How Much Adhesive and Grout Do I Need? When applying adhesive such as tile thin-set or tile mastic, cover the entire substrate using a 1/4" notch trawl. Generally, 50 lbs of adhesive will cover approximately 60 sq. ft. For grout you can use either a typical sanded tile grout or a type "S" mortar mix. Plan on an 80 lb bag covering approximately 50 sq. ft. ​

 

How Many Square Feet Will Brickweb Cover?​ Brickweb flat sheets are a rectangular shape with dimensions of 28"W x 10.5"H. There are 12 bricks mounted per sheet covering 1.7 sq. ft. There are 5 flat sheets per box which will cover a total of 8.7 sq. ft. ​

 

*Tip - To calculate your square footage, measure the length and height, then times them by one another. (example: a wall 10 ft long and 8 ft high = 80 sq. ft.) ​ Brickweb corner sheets are formed at a 90 degree angle with dimensions of 21"H x 15"W. There are 8 corner bricks per sheet which covers 1.76 Lineal ft. There are 3 corner sheets per box which will cover a total of 5.3 Lineal ft. ​ *Tip - To calculate your Lineal ft., measure the height or distance of a corner (example: measure your corner from floor to ceiling = total Lineal ft.) ​

 

What Is the Actual Size of the Individual Brick?​ Brickweb Thin Bricks are a standard or modular size. Each individual flat brick is 2-1/4"H x 7-5/8"W x 1/2"Thick. Brickweb corner bricks are 2-1/4"H x 7-5/8"W x 3-5/8"L x 1/2"Thick. ​
