Facing bricks are the materials used in the facade of a building, usually known as the front of the building. These bricks are manufactured with the purpose of being aesthetically appealing, with the intention of being visible to the passerby.
Available in several different designs, options vary from the traditional to the modern style with different colors and textures. We are able to supply facing bricks according to your specifications.
Extruded bricks are also known as wirecut bricks. These are quite a modern type of facing brick that has grown in popularity in recent years. These bricks are typified by their uniform shape and size, and are also available in a wider range of textures such as sanded, rustified, dragwired and even glazes.
Commonly known as softmud bricks, stock bricks are manufcatured using traditional methods of brick making. Stock bricks have different textures depending on whether they are made with sand-struck process or water-struck process. More often than not, stock bricks are used as a decorative addition to construction projects.
Arch bricks are favored for aesthetic designs like decorative arch units. These bricks are often used in openings like doorways and windows to form several different arch details. Arch bricks are manufactured in different shapes and sizes from flat gauged to segmental, semi circular and soldier profiles.
Waterstruck bricks are made using traditional processes, providing them with a unique texture. This is due to the usage of water in the modling and demolding process when these bricks are produced.
When the construction project calls for low water porosity, strength and/or resistance to acid and pollution, engineering bricks are used. These type of bricks are used for damp-proof courses, they are specifically created and employed to improve the technical and structural performance of the wall or building and are useful when function is required over form. Engineering bricks are not selected for their aesthetic value, but rather for their compressive strength and low water absorption.
There are two different classes of engineering bricks, Class A and Class B. These bricks are used where strength, water resistance, frost resistance and weathering resistance are a priority. Some common applications for engineering bricks includes damp-proof courses, manholes, sewers, general groundworks and retaining walls.
Class A engineering bricks have a compressive strength greater than 125N/mm² and water absorption of less than 4.5%.
Class B engineering bricks have a compressive strength greater than 75N/mm² and water absorption of less than 7%.
Suitable for most applications in construction projects, we work with some of the leading suppliers in the United Kingdom for firebricks to ensure the highest quality. We offer a competitively priced and cost effective solution for any requirement you may have for firebricks. This type of brick is dense which makes it more resistant to abrasion, they are also ablet o withstand extremly high temperatures, with low thermal conductivity which provides significantly higher energy efficiency. Firebricks are often used in the lining of furnaces and within fireplaces and chimneys. There are three commonly used sizes of firebricks which are 75cm, 64cm and 52cm.
Coursing & Commons Bricks
Partnering with some of the United Kingdom's top suppliers of concrete common bricks and coursing bricks, we are able to leverage our network of suppliers to provide you with an extremely cost effective solution.
Designed for most types of construction, concrete common bricks are designed to be employed above and below DPC level, they are usually grey in color and high in density, strength & thermal conductivity values. Common bricks are compatible with most dense concrete blocks, they will gain strength with age and areextremly durable, frost resistant and come in 65mm, 73mm and 100mm sizes. These bricks can be essential to the structural integrity of a project.
Ventilation bricks include two distinct types, air bricks and cavity weeps. An airbrick is designed to allow for the circulation of fresh air beneath suspended floors and within cavity walls. Designed to prevent the build up of moisture which can often lead to damp and mould in voids. Weep bricks are desigend to have small openings which allow drainage of a small amount of condensation that sometimes builds up through condensation.
We work with a number of leading manufacturers and are able to supply a range of airbricks and cavity weeps for any size of project in the United Kingdom.
