The Cheswick Place development required numerous brick slip solutions to accommodate the various flat gauge arches and soldier course bond patterns featured within the design.

Bloor Homes required lightweight products to achieve the brick detail over the windows which would accommodate various width openings and could easily be replicated with consistent levels of quality and detail.


Keystone’s Lightweight Brick Headers offered the perfect solution. The lightweight headers are installed above a standard cavity lintel, placed on to the outer leaf with no additional fixings required. These single piece units do not exceed regulations for a single man lift and therefore provide a safer option.

Keystone collected bricks from site to ensure that these units matched the remainder of the brickwork and each brick was precision cut to specification. The 25mm brick slips were then bonded to the lightweight units using a BBA approved adhesive.

These prefabricated units were produced within a strict quality controlled environment and offered high levels of consistency. Each of the lightweight units were delivered to site ready for final pointing, saving considerable time and the need for specialist trades onsite.
