The prefabricated brick elements

Prefabricated elements of exposed brickwork are steel-reinforced concrete elements manufactured in our plant, with exposed surfaces clad with specialist forms of shaped ceramic to enable them to be combined on the construction site with the brickwork surfaces of the facade. The so-called swallowtail ensures the optimal connection between the brick molded parts and the concrete core.

These prefabricated elements in the exposed brickwork are available in all of the colors, formats and surface finishes of the GIMA product range. The joints here are inset by between 15 and 20 millimetres so pointing can be performed on-site using the same mortar as the one chosen for the other facade surfaces. The outcome is a homogeneous overall impression.

Unique

swallowtail interlinking

GIMA prefabricated elements are only produced with swallowtail interlinking at the back. This very strong form of interlinking guarantees a totally secure grip between concrete core and ceramic shell. This assures an optimum mechanical bond between ceramic and concrete, preventing structural damage.

The configuration of constructions elements is performed in acc. with DIN 1045, based on structural type or individual structural calculation. Our designs reinforce non-load-bearing elements sufficiently. We recommend incorporating prefabricated elements for exposed brickwork at the planning and tender specification stage, and in the facade planning process.

Detailed drawings

In our product folder for prefabricated elements, you will find a large number of drawings showing examples of how to combine prefabricated components for window and door lintels, window sills, eaves and fascias, attic finishers, masonry covers, staircase steps, wall elements and retaining wall elements. Individual solutions, cut precisely to suit your building structure, are our standard fare as well as a challenge, and you are welcome to put our expertise to the test.

Limitless color variety

PREFABRICATED BRICK ELEMENTS

We can produce all ceramic products in your desired color and format. We always manufacture prefabricated elements together with classic bricks for one building. This ensures that the colors match up properly.

For facades, we only manufacture on a project-specific basis, and we consult with you about your desired color until we have achieved a perfect match with your wishes. Let yourself be inspired by our color overview and discover a selection of colors produced previously.

There are many arguments in favour of using prefabricated elements for exposed brickwork on walls. As well as the great time saving achieved through prefabrication, construction work is accelerated by ease of installation. In addition, there is a related cost saving achieved through the great scope for rationalisation. Finally, through the use of prefabricated elements, details become possible that could not be achieved, or only with difficulty, with conventional masonry. Discover condensed expertise: through the planning process, the manufacturing process and our service concept in our technical section.
