New Hanson guide makes brick selection easy

20 Feb 2014

Hanson’s latest brick guide contains all the information architects, specifiers and designers need to select the right brick for any project.


The easy-to-use guide has been updated to incorporate the latest changes to the company’s extensive brick range, which includes high quality extruded bricks as well as a range of sustainable stock bricks.


Among the highlights are:


  • a number of examples of outstanding brick-built projects in both the commercial and residential sectors;
  • Hanson’s new brick and block app – available to download free for iPhone, iPad and Android devices – which allows specifiers to make product selections on the move;
  • the company’s recently launched blended brick service, which enables a bespoke combination of bricks to be created;
  • a section on innovation in walling solutions detailing Hanson’s Dimensions range of large format blocks and modular sized bricks and the company’s Lockclad and Wonderwall cladding systems.


“Our comprehensive guide makes it easy to select the right brick whether you are looking to choose a product for its sustainability credentials, colour, texture or size – or to match an existing one,” said Paul Lacey, head of sustainability and marketing at Hanson UK.


“It also provides information on the different tools available on the Hanson website that make it easy for architects and specifiers to quickly and easily share their product choices with their colleagues and clients at the touch of a button.”
