At its location in Schleswig-Holstein, far in the north of Germany, the MELDORFER® factory has been producing high-quality flat facing bricks using traditional artisan methods for around 40 years now. Inspired by nature, the unique appearance of our products lends a special, one-of-a-kind quality to any building.
Inspired by nature
Original Meldorfer® bricks have a low weight and are very thin when applied in comparison to solid bricks and brick slips, meaning less time spent on handling and lower costs.
They are suitable for use on façade insulation systems, ventilated curtain wall façades, monolithic structures, combination façades and interior areas.
quality that comes from true craftsmanship
The production work that takes place at the MELDORFER® factory in Schleswig-Holstein is the perfect blend of technology and tradition.
Cutting-edge machinery is an essential ingredient, but the process also relies heavily on craftsmanship, experience and finesse due to the traditional artisan methods that have always been a hallmark of the surfaces we produce. High standards and strict production specifications ensure that the quality of our products remains consistently outstanding.
Every single flat facing brick is one of a kind, and over the past 40 years or so, one place has given birth to them all: our factory in Nindorf, situated near the seaside resort of St. Peter-Ording
Always individual while staying true to their design, all of our surfaces deliver the kind of quality that comes from true craftsmanship. That’s the Original Meldorfer® brand promise.
Both the design and function of our flat facing bricks set exceptional standards. Measuring just 4 to 6 millimetres thick, they are much lighter and more cost-effective to handle than solid bricks and brick slips.
Despite being so thin, they are just as hard-wearing, thanks to the in-depth research and development that goes into them – plus our years of experience and proven material compositions.
While the raw materials are machine-processed, traditional artisan methods are always used to give the surfaces their own unique final finish.
More than 90 percent of the material in the flat facing bricks is made up of natural sand, ground stone and high-quality mineral fillers.
The perfect blend of technology and tradition
ORIGINAL MELDORFER® products and flat facing bricks can be applied on almost any substrate.
They have a low weight and are very thin when applied in comparison to solid bricks and brick slips, meaning less time spent on handling and lower costs. They are suitable for use on façade insulation systems, ventilated curtain wall façades, monolithic structures, combination façades and interior areas.
Original Meldorfer® products are applied on any insulation system, regardless of the insulation material thickness.
What’s more, they can be applied to insulation panels made from mineral wool, EPS or polyurethane. Unlike conventional systems that use hard surfaces, there is not always the need for additional anchoring, and the insulation only requires 40 percent adhesive coverage. There is no need for field demarcation joints.
The adhesion and joint formation processes are carried out in a single step using just one material. The surfaces retain their value outstandingly well and are exceptionally durable – as well as frost-resistant, UV-stable, quick-drying and able to withstand mechanical strain. Whether they’re used outdoors or indoors, the truly versatile products from the Original Meldorfer® brand offer outstanding technical attributes at the right price, and can help make any design dream come true.
