This CPD will focus on the NovaBrik® mortarless brick system which provides the ideal cladding solution for everything from residential housing and apartments to commercial projects and extensions.

The versatility of NovaBrik® means it lends itself equally well to timber frame, steel frame, concrete panel, conventional block wall, innovative ICF systems, as well as insulated panels.

NovaBrik®'s interlocking design prevents water from penetrating the wall from the outside and the mortarless construction promotes air flow in the wall cavity, thus removing any moisture coming from the inside. The water-absorption of the high-strength concrete composition is less than 5%, ensuring exceptional resistance to freeze-thaw cycles.
