The best-kept secret for successful shop fit out ideas

750 425 Durabric

The humble clay brick might be touted as Australia’s number one building material but that’s little comfort when it comes to new shop fit out ideas or commercial retrofits.

Bricks have a long and lustrous history. But they are hardly known as a fast and cost-effective solution. They are definitely not considered innovative for shop fit outs looking for new ideas. But, when you’re creating a sensory atmosphere for customers, fake just won’t do the trick.

Until now, that is.

It’s a difficult balancing act. Fast fit outs save time and money, getting that all-important front door open sooner. But, once customers are in, you don’t want to lose them due to a cheap fit out full of compromises. That’s why shopfitters love DuraBric.

These fake brick panels are a win-win. Lightweight and easy to install, DurBric panels can be fixed to an existing wall. A faster solution than traditional brickwork, without the load-bearing restrictions.

And the best part? These imitation brick panels look and feel just like the real thing.

An environmentally conscious solution

As retail trends look toward sustainable solutions there is no doubt a shift in consumer attitudes. This has prompted retailers to take their environmental footprint more seriously. Layered neutral tones and natural elements, like cork and wood, are becoming more common. DuraBric provides the perfect back-drop.

It’s almost become the material of choice, especially with architects. A simple painted brick finish can bring a tactile richness to the retail space, creating a modern but timeless base design. A warm and inviting canvas.

“It’s not about just plastering your walls with a brick substitute,” says DuraBric’s Managing Director, Jason Nolan. “Our brick panels have been used in all sorts of ways. It’s not uncommon for the customer to choose a profile that enhances other architectural features.”

Whether used as a uniting element for mixed materials or highlighting sustainable credentials, these hard-wearing faux brick panels can add both sophistication and longevity.

Today’s retail landscape might be more demanding. The great news is your brick aesthetic doesn’t have to be.
