Brick tiles are a popular choice for interior and exterior renovation projects due to their durability, versatility, and aesthetic appeal. They are often used as a substitute for traditional bricks and are available in different sizes and thicknesses to suit various applications. Our range of Brick Tiles include cut brick tiles, which have been cut from an actual brick and are 20mm thick and then our pressed lady brick tiles which are just 14mm thick.
One of the most common questions people ask about brick tiles is how thick they are. The answer to this question is that it varies based on the type of brick tile you choose.
Standard brick tiles, which are our most commonly sold brick tile are 20mm thick (give or take) the reason for this thickness is to allow the bricks authentic character to show through, insulation purposes and, to reduce breakages. These brick tiles are cut from real brick and are thin enough to be easily cut to size and can be installed using traditional tiling techniques.
Our purpose made brick tiles, on the other hand, are thinner, these are made using modern techniques and instead o being cut from the brick they are purpose made brick tiles so are constructed in thin moulds that are just 14mm thick. Despite the reduction in depth, these can still be used in and around the home both inside and outside and have the same structural properties of our 20mm brick tiles.
It is important to note that the thickness of brick tiles can also affect their weight and installation cost. Thicker tiles will be heavier and may require additional support, which can increase the cost of installation.
In conclusion, brick tiles come in different thicknesses to accommodate different applications. When choosing your brick tiles, it is important to consider the thickness that will work best for your project to ensure its durability and longevity.
