The large-format bricks

The large format bricks imbue the facade with a completely different appearance to the classic small brickwork pattern. This is because the unmistakable and material-specific joining technique supports the surface and enables the joint pattern to assume a subordinate role. Its contemporary and technically functional appearance is one that can be combined well with all facade construction materials.
The terracotta facade is a special form of large ceramic format. This is characterised by the fact that terracotta masonry bricks are available in a revealed masonry surface area of up to 600 x 600 mm. All of these masonry bricks are cut to size using state-of-the-art stone-cutting equipment, so are calibrated accurately to the nearest millimetre.

The optimum structural properties of brick facades are a perfect match with modern economic and ecological requirements. The large-format bricks by GIMA are prooved to be an ideal construction material for facades: It is frost-resistant, resistant to acids and alkalis, non-fading, resistant to light and it also does not show signs of age. Instead, a patina forms on its surface and, as time goes by, it becomes increasingly attractive. Obtain a better insight into the subject of brick facades. What exactly happens in the firing process? What can be done to influence the color shades that bricks adopt? And how can GIMA assist me with project planning?
