Imperial Bricks has introduced new Restoration Red and Restoration Oxford Yellow Multi Waterstruck bricks in response to increasing demand for regionally appropriate variations.
These traditional handmade bricks are made using a relatively soft clay, with water used as the releasing agent for the moulding process, giving them a smoother appearance while still retaining character. The new additions work well in the renovation of period properties, extensions, boundary walls as well as high-end new-builds.
Bricks vary in colour and composition across the UK, and Imperial’s range of 50+ handmade, wirecut and pressed bricks includes options for every region. The Restoration Red Waterstruck is suitable for most regions across the UK, whilst the Restoration Oxford Yellow Multi Waterstruck brick is designed to suit properties found across Oxfordshire, Cambridgeshire, East Coast and East Anglia. A standard version without a weathered finish is also available. The brick was recently used on a Grade 1 listed castle in Kent for a sensitive repair and stabilisation project.
Jason Hughes, Managing Director of Imperial Bricks, commented: “We have a sustainable supply of both new bricks which are fully tested to BS EN 771-1 and F2 rated for frost resistance.
“They can be found in our Brick Matcher app, which offers an on-the-go guide to our complete range, available for iPhones and Android phones.”
