Quality

The best brick quality product that will ensure lasting durability

All our bricks are manufactured in Spain to more exacting European standards.
This results in a better product better able to stand the tests of time and our climate while looking great at all times.

Higher compressive strength means….
  • Better structural characteristics and ability to use in civil engineering applications e.g. higher unsupported walls
  • Better performance in earthquake loading
  • Less cracking and chipping in transport and laying
Lower initial rate of absorption (suction) means….
  • No requirement to wet bricks on hot days
  • less risk of mortar weakening due to high suction
Lower expansion means….
  • Reduced requirement to design for brick growth
Lower maximum water absorption means….
  • Lower permeability
  • Reduced ingress of moisture, damp and salts which can weaken and damage bricks
  • Long term maintenance of compressive strength
