  7. 7. Design Flexibility Comerica Park University of Michigan Dearborn CampusThe EZ Wall™ Thin Brick System from the American Brick Company is a designer sdream! From something as simple as a flat wall to elaborate archways, flowing andbending radius walls and quoin details. 7
  8. 8. Structural FlexibilityThe EZ Wall ™ Engineered Thin Brick System s light weight minimizes the use offootings, and eliminates the need for lintels and wall ties. Now architects can design withlight weight wall assemblies instead of structural steel, cutting construction costs whilemaintaining structural integrity and building aesthetics. 8
  9. 9. Positive Mechanical Attachments The EZ Wall ™ System offers the advantage of positive mechanical attachments to the structure. A matrix is created between the brick, the brick ledge, and the AMBRICO Mortar, independent of the adhesive bond. This ensures trouble free performance under even the most severe conditions. 9
  10. 10. CompatibilityThin Brick can easily be combined with other products such as EIFS or traditional facebrick, for maximum design flexibility. An excellent example is the University of Michigan,Dearborn Campus, where thin brick was installed in conjunction with traditional brick.Only an expert can discern the difference. 10
  11. 11. SpeedThe EZ Wall™ System is easier and faster to install than traditional masonry, and thatdifference can mean thousands of dollars in reduced construction costs. A delay of a fewweeks or months in completing a job can result in lost sales to the building owner ortenant. When time is of the essence, count on the EZ Wall™ Engineered Thin BrickSystem to speed the completion with top-notch results. 11
  12. 12. Year Round InstallationCold weather months, which can stop traditional masonry in it s tracks, is not a deterrentto thin brick installation. In situations where time to market is an issue, thin brick can cutweeks or even months off construction schedules. The EZ Wall™ Engineered Thin BrickSystem allows work crews to be productive year round. 12
  13. 13. DurabilityWith proper building maintenance, the EZ Wall™ Engineered Thin Brick System will lastfor the life of the building and comes with a 20 year material warranty. 13
