In reality, the size of the brick slip mortar joints are entirely up to you. However, it is important to make a decision in the size of the brick slip mortar joints before you place your order. As you can see in the picture above, the mortar changes rather drastically in colour when it is wet and dry. This will also change the appearance of the brick slip itself.
If you asked our opinion, we’d always advise you to use 10mm brick slip mortar joints. These look the most aesthetically pleasing and neat. Using our 10mm brick slip spacers will allow you to get a professional finish on your brick tile installation and ensure there is a precise 10mm space between each slip. This will also make applying your Slip-Fix Mortar easier as your mortar joints will all be straight and equidistant from one another. A single bag of brick slip spacers will cover 3.5m² but they are reusable so they are suitable for projects of any size.
Another option for you would to be space your brick slips by eye. Although this means your brick slip mortar joints are unlikely to be even, it can an effective method to use when trying to achieve an old brick wall look. If you are looking to install brick slips in say an old cottage or farmhouse, you may find using free form mortar joints helps you to maintain that traditional look. We are sure the slips will fit seamlessly into whatever project you desire them for!
