A New Way To Achieve A Genuine Brick Look: Avante

Avante PGH Bricks & Pavers Foyer Nero

From PGH Bricks & Pavers comes Avante, the lightweight brick walling system that is versatile, resulting in a real brick finish.

The Avante brick walling system is perfect for both new construction and re-cladding across the commercial, residential and multi-residential projects and can be used both internally and externally.

It is particularly suited to retail and hospitality projects, giving architects and designers the means and flexibility to achieve the natural beauty of real brick and create stunning and truly unique interior spaces or facades. Without the weight, space, and other limitations faced in modern day construction and fit outs using real brick, Avante represents a new way forward for the industry by PGH Bricks & Pavers.

Australian made, Avante is a lock-in rail system that is lightweight and has the flexibility and versatility to accommodate for heights, shapes and the conditions that architects, builders and residents come up against on a project. The system can be used to complement traditional brick, or used on elements of a project where full brick just cannot be accommodated.

Genuine PGH Brick facings are fixed mechanically to galvanised steel rails, mounted in horizontal rows onto a vertical support system. The brick facings are then ‘clipped’ into place and mortar added. The system allows for both standard and linear brick heights (76mm or 50mm), giving plenty of scope for design. The mechanical ‘clipping’ feature ensures a high strength wall that enables some adjustment of brick facing position during installation.

Available in the full range of bricks that PGH Bricks & Pavers has on offer, there is a huge selection of textures, styles and colours to choose from. Avante is versatile and can be used with a wide range of substructures, including concrete, timber frame, structural steel, lightweight steel frames, masonry and structurally insulated panels.

The Avante brick walling system from PGH Bricks & Pavers offers a new simple, fast and flexible way forward to achieve a genuine brick look.
