This tracking system is suitable for 63mm to 68mm brick slips.
Brick Slip Tracking System based on 10mm Cement Board is suitable for internal and external projects on various substrates including brick, block, timber frame/SIPS and ICF. Used to increase the speed of brick slip installation on larger scale projects. Applications include External Wall Insulation (EWI), refurbishments, modular buildings, leisure and park homes, conservatory wall panels, retail display walls and domestic feature walls.
The product is a 1mm thick sheet of recycled HIPS incorporating horizontal ribs for guiding brick slip placement, bonded to a panel of 10mm thick cement board. It can be easily cut with an angle grinder for shaping panels to project requirements and facilitating reveals. It is ideal for affixing to a timber battened substrate using appropriate mechanical fixings, proving a robust and rigid expanse between battens, avoiding the need to adopt OSB withing the backing substrate build up.
Once fixed, brick slips are adhered using the gun applied foil pack adhesive available from our Brick Slips Store. When the adhesive is cured, brick slips can be pointed with a suitable pointing mortar, also available in our Brick Slips Store.
Used to spread the load at the point of fastening.
E.g. if fixing tracking panels to a wooden substrate, use M8 x 40mm diameter mudguard washer with an M5 stainless steel wood screw. Length of screw should be appropriate for the thickness of the tracking sheet/panel backing substrate.
Used to affix the tracking panel to a wooden substrate.
Use in conjunction with a suitable stainless steel mudguard washer. E.g. if fixing to a timber substrate, use M5 wood screw with an M8 x 40mm stainless steel mudguard washer.
Used to affix the tracking panel to a concrete substrate.
Use in conjunction with a suitable stainless steel mudguard washer. E.g. if fixing to a concrete substrate, use M6 countersunk lightning bolt with an M10 x 40mm stainless steel mudguard washer.
Used to affix tracking panels to a block, brick or concrete substrate.
Ensure length selected is appropriate for the thickness of insulation adopted in the tracking panel. E.g. if 17.5mm XPS tracking panel adopted, use 10 x 90mm insulation fixing.
Washer diameter 60mm max.
36 fixings per 1200mm x 2400mm tracking panel recommended.
