Dryvit Systems Inc. has launched a new brick product billed as a game-changer when it comes to installation productivity and design options for multi-story buildings.

Called NewBrick, the patent-pending product is described as a lightweight (1/12th the weight of a traditional clay brick), insulated brick product coated with a specially formulated finish.

The cladding product matches clay brick’s classic size and appearance, but offers unique engineering and technology designed to meet today’s building challenges, according to the Rhode Island-based manufacturer.

"Dryvit’s lightweight NewBrick reduces the need for structural reinforcement and also allows much faster installation [when compared to traditional brick]," said Winford “Buck” Lindsay, FAIA, a principal of the Atlanta-based architectural firm of Lindsay Pope Brayfield Clifford & Associates.

The NewBrick features a built in horizontal alignment guide that eliminates the need for support pans and mortar joint spacers and also establishes the perfect 3/8-inch spacing for the mortar, reducing installation time and saving money, according to Dryvit. Further, the company says no brick ties are needed, which eliminates penetrations through the water-resistive barrier.

The product can be installed directly over tilt-wall, precast and concrete masonry units, and can also be installed over the company’s Outsulation system, the company adds.
