The smart and natural look of brick can now be used to stunning effect in the design of mid to high-rise buildings, new construction and re-cladding projects, through this unique cladding system that is CORIUM.
Innovative and versatile, the CORIUM system comprises brick tiles specially manufactured to fix mechanically to an HPS200 galvanised steel backing section. These profiled lengths are mounted in horizontal rows onto a vertical support system and the brick tiles are then clipped in place. The mechanical 'clipping' feature is unique to CORIUM and ensures a high strength façade that enables some adjustment of brick tile position during installation. Mortar is added using a pump system.
CORIUM can be used with a wide range of substructures, including concrete, timber frame, structural steel, lightweight steel frames, masonry and structurally insulated panels. It can be mounted at any angle to achieve some truly dynamic finishes – even overhead for soffits and ceilings. Decorative and textural patterns, as well as mosaic, are easily achieved to add that extra dimension to project design. And with the large and exciting range of colours and textures available, the possibilities provided by this unique building material are limitless.
