BENCHMARK’s Thin Brick Façade Systems are a modern interpretation of a classic look utilizing eye catching finishes to create uniquely styled buildings. This façade system combines the classic and timeless brick appearance with the superior performance and durability of insulated metal panels. This light weight system is faster and easier to install than a traditional brick system as well as decreasing a building’s overall demand for energy.

  • Design Flexibility:  various profiles, textures, colors, mortars
  • Horizontal & Vertical application
  • Fast & Simple installation process
  • Bricks are held in place by steel rails to form permanent mechanical bond
  • Bricks require no adhesives to be held in place
  • Bricks are produced in the same manner as traditional building brick
