The Brick Jacket will have a massive positive impact on your saftey performance and accident prevention.
- When bricks are delievered on site, they are usually in packs and shrink wrapped. Once this wrap is removed and the bricks are stacked ready to be laid the bricks are at risk and can collapse, causing injury and damage to the bricks themselves. You can prevent this from happening by using a Brick Jacket.
- The bright colour of the Brick Jackets make stacks of bricks more visible to make it easier for staff to be aware of stacks, even in their peripheral vision.
- Uncovered bricks pose a safety risk as they are easier to be knocked over or topples which can be particularly hazardous on scaffolding.
With its innovative and simple design, the Brick Jacket has proven to be an extremely effective and affordable product.
The dimensions of the jackets co-ordinate with standard and imperial bricks and block sizes. Brick Jackets are manufactured from woven polypropylene, providing a strong durable cover designed to safeguard your bricks from wind, rainfall and frost.
By using a Brick Jacket you are decreasing the chance of efflorescence. Once efflorescence kicks in the Bricklayer will then have the costy and time consuming job of cleaning the bricks. If bricks become wet or frozen by the harsh weather, this can compromise your face brickwork standards. For example, smusdging and staining to the face of the brick which would need to be jet washed or acid cleaned. Acid being a harsh chemical can deteriorate the integrity of the cement.
