BrickClad® brick facade for Dartford residential project

 BrickClad® brick facade for Dartford residential project

Shackerley’s BrickClad® mechanically-fixed brick cladding system has been used to create the brick facade for Green Court, in Dartford, Kent; a new-build residential block comprising 14 apartments across five storeys.

Specified and installed by Green Facades Ltd, the BrickClad® brick facade combines the appearance of traditional bricks with the patented and Queen’s Award-winning SureClad® facade sub-structure. Delivering a complete brick cladding solution from Shackerley, the project provides a durable and authentic brick facade with the buildability benefits of a ventilated rainscreen system.

The new Green Court residential block is part of a changing urban layout around Dartford’s Market Street area – which is to become known as Brewery Square. It will complement a wider Dartford town centre regeneration programme. Alongside traffic calming measures and a more pedestrian-friendly layout, the regeneration scheme aims to provide greener urban spaces and a contemporary look, while drawing on the location’s traditional architecture and materiality. The specification of high quality facade materials that reflect the quality and sustainability of this urban transformation was central to the Green Court project, and  Shackerley’s BrickClad® brick cladding will ensure that the Lowfield Street development will reflect the updated image of Dartford town centre.

The Shackerley BrickClad® BBA certified, mechanically-fixed brick facade system also provides a non-combustible cladding solution for the project, as part of a fire safe building envelope for the residential building.

Shackerley supplied the BrickClad® brick cladding system for a total facade area of 800m2, providing  215 x 65mm bricks from the BrickClad® Saxony brick facade range, in a traditional orange/brown colourway. We also supplied 6,920 pre-fabricated single-piece corners for the project, further aiding speed, ease and accuracy of the facade installation.

 Shackerley’s BrickClad® brick cladding system for brick facades

Shackerley’s BrickClad® brick cladding system is an ideal alternative to external brickslip cladding for any project that requires a brick facade. Brick is a traditional construction material in the UK and the BrickClad® brick rainscreen system enables the construction of a brick facade using an innovative mechanical brick cladding installation system. This means that a brick facade can be achieved faster, but unlike brickslip systems, BrickClad® uses genuine kiln-fired clay bricks, providing brick cladding that look and feels like traditional brick facade construction. With BrickClad®, Shackerley provides the benefits of mechanical brick facade installation and the consistency of a brick rainscreen, while offering brick cladding with the aesthetics of traditional brick.

Installation for our mechanical fixed brick facade involves insertion of each brick into BrickClad® Magnelis/Stainless steel cassettes. Each mechanical brick is secured inside the cassette by its unique BrickClad® profile and is pointed with BrickClad® lime brick pointing mortar. 


 Shackerley’s BrickClad® brick cladding answers the non-combustible cladding requirements of BS EN13501-1. Our brick facade system is an A1 rated rainscreen.
