Classic Brick Collection

Clay bricks are one of the oldest and most trusted sustainable building materials. Available in a variety of colours and face textures, this range is 230mm long x 76mm high x 70mm wide.

Able to be used on all buildings; stand alone homes, townhouses and multi storey buildings, clay bricks are renowned for their strength and longevity, needing little to no maintenance to continue looking great for years to come.

Key Features
  • Available in a wide variety of colours and face textures
  • Naturally creative, no brick is the same which creates a unique and natural look to the veneer
  • Low maintenance and capable of weather harsh environmental conditions. They require no painting or other treatments
  • Made from organic materials and naturally abundant sources of clay, they can be reused and recycled
  • The natural insulating properties moderate the extremes in building temperatures, keeping it cool in summer and warm in winter, reducing energy consumption
  • The heavy mass of clay bricks results in them being effective acoustic insulation, blocking outside noise from entering the dwelling
