Designa Schist Z Brick – Austral Bricks

Designa Schist Z Brick Austral Bricks offer the beauty and character of stone, with the advantages of brick.

Designa Schist uses the finest quality hand-selected pieces of real stone, embedded in pre-formed concrete modules, which are laid using a drained and ventilated cavity system, exactly as bricks have been for over one hundred years.

This modular system has revolutionised the installation of natural stone, by significantly reducing the material and labour costs usually associated with traditional stone products. Designa Schist combines the certainty of brick veneer construction with the natural beauty and value adding qualities of real stone. Blending on site (mixing across multiple packs) is essential for uniform colour distribution across the overall wall.

Designa Schist is virtually maintenance and fade free, weather resistant, energy efficient and strong. Bricks and columns are easy to lay, unlike individual pieces of stone that must be painstakingly cut, set and mortared by a stonemason.  Different sizes are available from standard, see the brochure for full details.
