OUR SPECIALS RANGE
Angle & Cant Bricks
Providing flexibility and choice, these British Standard bricks are designed to allow the designer to turn brickwork through angles or chamfered designs both vertically and horizontally.
Bonding is the arrangement of bricks to allow them to module in a specific way. This ensures stability throughout the facade whilst also offering a unique design pattern in the brickwork.
Concealment of Construction
Brickwork can be used as a method of cladding to conceal construction elements such as steel angles, lintels, concrete toes or edge beams. The overall result of applying these special bricks is a uniform and matching facade throughout the project.
Overhanging sills are designed to provide the correct level of overhand and drip detail on window surrounds. This protects a facade from water penetration and ensures durable brickwork that withstands the test of time.
Providing detailing and interest, these British Standard plinth bricks allow the designer to move the brickwork forward and backwards whilst moving up the facade. Plinth bricks are often used to create simple feature steps in residential projects but can also be used to create more intricate details such as entrances and exits from recessed or protruding feature panels.
Providing resilience and attractive detailing, our wall capping options offer unique design solutions to retaining, standalone and garden walls.
Soldier bricks are designed to help maintain bond through changes of angle and pitch whilst using soldier bond.
Rounded detailing is created by using radial brick specials to form circular brick features without the use of tapered joints,
