Brick Slips Compatible with the Barracuda Brick Slip System
Almost all brick types compliant with BS EN 771 are compatible with the Barracuda brick slip support system. Some brick types are however inherently very fragile when cut into typical brick slip thicknesses. The Barracuda brick slip support system is more tolerant of very fragile bricks because the Barracuda brick slip thickness is 40mm. It is however important that the brick type intended for use with the Barracuda brick slip support system is confirmed by James & Taylor as being suitable for use with the Barracuda system.
Brick slips must be cut in accordance with James & Taylor Barracuda brick slip cutting drawings; CU-B-101 to CU-B-104RH-R. There are currently 13 No. drawings in this drawing series. Please contact James & Taylor should you wish to be provided with these drawings.
In order to assist with the brick slip cutting process, James & Taylor can provide 'cutting jigs' and saw 'setting blocks' that enable the correct and accurate set-up of suitable [typical] brick cutting saw machinery. Please contact James & Taylor should you wish to discuss the provision of these cutting jigs and saw setting blocks.
