Hanson UK’s latest brick guide has been developed to help builders, architects, developers and merchants choose the right brick for their project and make an informed decision on the most sustainable products available.
It includes detailed information on the Hanson Ecostock range – the most sustainable stock brick range on the market as well as information on how the company has invested to ensure that sustainability is at the heart of its brick manufacturing processes.
Details on Hanson’s Thermalite blocks are also included which can help specifiers and builders achieve all levels of the Code for Sustainable Homes and the guide also contains information on special shaped bricks as well as high quality chimney, ridge and clay products. The use of a high-end printing process throughout the guide ensures a realistic representation of the colour and texture of Hanson’s full range.
Hanson UK’s national marketing manager Paul Lacey said: “Our new brick guide is extremely user-friendly making it easy to choose the right brick for the job. We have also included information on achieving code levels under the Code for Sustainable Homes (CfSH’s) and design advice on meeting U-values for extensions with Hanson products.
“The guide now has a QR code on the back meaning you can visit our website quickly with a smart phone to view our latest product information wherever you are.”
Hanson was the first brick manufacturer to achieve BES 6001 Responsible Sourcing of Materials (RSM) certification for all products from its UK brick production sites and the guide contains all of the company’s extensive range of clay products and brands – Ecostock TM, Cradley, Red Bank and the original London brick.
