Here is a simple comparison between full bed brick and thin brick. This infographic was created to show potential energy and resource savings when using a wall system that includes thin brick.
This information does not contain all of the factors that come into play when comparing the complete full and thin brick wall systems. Instead, this is designed as a visual representation to show some inherent advantages in using thin brick.
80% of full brick is never seen. Thin brick allows for more building
options like added insulation and more interior space.
