One of the most common uses of slips is as a finish for exterior wall insulation. As with conventional slips, either the units are connected to the substrate (in this case, rigid insulation panels that have been mechanically secured to the wall) delivered on site or as a pre-insulated cladding panel. Both options are fantastic for retrofitting existing solid wall to reach homes modern standards of energy efficiency, while maintaining a traditional brick facade.

This system is also suitable for new buildings, especially where a masonry finish for desired construction looks, such as wood frames, insulating concrete form, solid wall, and structural insulated panels. This can also give you the opportunity to reduce wall thickness compared to traditional brick and block, so it is possible to gain valuable internal space.
