Grey Wash — Basics
Description

With Rust as the base a dark slurry wash adds drama and contemporary aesthetic for those seeking a darker colour palette. Suitable for volume builds, commercial and residential projects. Best used with a rolled joint. Part of the Basics range, distributed by The Brickery.

  • 230 x 76 x 70mm

With volume projects and cost effectiveness in mind, the Basics range is a comprehensive range developed to meet the current economic climate, supporting our builders, developers and bricklayers, to continue designing and building with clay bricks. The colour palette consists of a brown colour-through base with a contemporary wash of pigment over the face, mix and match, changing the aesthetic with mortar colour of choice.

Variations in colour, texture and size are natural characteristics of clay products and production variations can occur from batch to batch. Whilst every effort is made to provide samples, brochures and displays consistent with product delivered to site, they should be viewed as a guide only.

Key Features
  • Cost effective and low maintenance — no painting, sealing, or treating required. Colour is fired in and will not fade
  • Insulating — combine bricks with energy efficient design to keep warm in winter, and cool in summer
  • Durable — long lasting, fully reusable (not just recyclable), and naturally resistant to fire or pests
  • Sustainable — made from naturally abundant sources of clay, and free from contaminants
