VBriQ Exicco Lite

VBriQ Exicco Lite is an NHBC-compliant drained cavity system that comprises the VBriQ synthetic brick slip finish on the Alumasc Facades by K Rend Lite grey EPS insulation board. The VBriQ Exicco Lite system from Alumasc Facades by K Rend is typically used where a brick effect is sought for new build steel frame constructions with heights of less than 18 m.

This BBA-approved system comprises the following components:

  • VBriQ synthetic brick slips
  • VBriQ Adhesive
  • Alumasc Facades by K Rend Silicone Primer
  • Alumasc Facades by K Rend Base Coat
  • Alumasc Facades by K Rend Scrim Reinforcement
  • Alumasc Facades by K Rend insulation fixing
  • Alumasc Facades by K Rend Lite grey EPS insulation
  • Alumasc Facades by K Rend Exicco Rail
  • Steel Frame

Key Features

VBriQ Exicco Lite from Alumasc Facades Facades by K Rend is a lightweight and cost-effective drained cavity EWI system that is suitable for low-rise buildings. The drained cavity behind the insulation ensures that any interstitial moisture escapes without detriment to the performance of the system. The VBriQ synthetic brick slips can be manufactured to replicate almost any brick type and used in conjunction with a range of mortar colours to achieve the design intent of the architect.

Key Performance Criteria:

  • Fire performance: B-s1,d0
  • Thermal performance: Typical U Values are:
    • 90 mm Lite insulation ~ 0.30 W/m2K
    • 120 mm Lite insulation ~ 0.25 W/m2K
    • 160 mm Lite insulation ~ 0.19 W/m2K


  • BBA Certificate 17/5471 PS1 – Grey EPS (Lite) onto steel frame
  • BBA Certificate 17/5471 PS2 – Grey EPS (Lite) onto timber frame


  • VBriQ finishes can replicate any UK brick’s colour and texture
  • VBriQ slips can be supplied in a number of size formats
  • VBriQ slips are lightweight – at c. 4.5 kg/m2
  • VBriQ is cost-effective to transport (up to 6,000 m2 of bricks can be transported per truck)
  • Energy efficient manufacturing – requires c. 12% of the energy to produce traditional bricks
  • Quick and simple to install (often upwards of 10 m2/day)
  • High UV resistance to ensure that the original brick colour is maintained


  • Framed substrates – timber or steel
  • New build projects
  • Low-rise properties (less than 18 m)
