Most reliable and convenient method of installation of the salt brick walls 8″x4″x2″ (20x10x5 cm) is a system of glue-free mounting (hidden installation). This system was developed by the HPCSALT.DESIGN Studio. This development allows us to mount and fasten a salt structure (wall, ceiling, rack) without use of adhesives. Also, this mounting system distributes the load over the entire area evenly, without creating a point load on the slab or load-bearing wall. This property is especially important due to the large weight of the brick.
