Thick Set

Is Thick Set System less expensive than Metal Grid Systems?

Yes, but it is by insignificant amount when compared to the proper thickset system components. Savings in material costs are lost on the labor end when used to install thin brick. Please obtain detailed quotes for comparison.

When is this system used?

We recommend using this system for installation of irregular shaped thin stone veneers or Clinker bricks.

What is Thick Set System?

Thick-bed installations are based on the traditional method of creating cementitious bed over a surface before installing the brick tile. For wall applications, metal lath is mechanically anchored to the substrate, and the mortar locks into the metal lath as it cures. Thin Brick or stone is adhered to the bed using polymer modified mortars.
