Imperial Bricks, the leading traditional handmade brick supplier in the UK, has launched a new Waterstruck range, with different, regionally matched options to cover the Midlands, North and East Anglia.
The new Waterstruck range is soft mud moulded, using water as the releasing agent, giving the imperial-sized bricks a relatively smooth, but a characterful aged appearance. The clay used for the manufacturing process is relatively soft and creates a distinct texture that is F2 rated for frost resistance and fully tested to BS EN 771-1 standards.
There are three bricks available so far: Red Waterstruck, Lightly Weathered Waterstruck ideally suited for the Midlands and North, and an Oxford Yellow Multi Waterstruck. The last being a pale brick with pink and orange tones commonly found across Oxfordshire, Cambridgeshire, East Anglia and the East Coast.
Jason Hughes, Managing Director at Imperial Bricks says: “Although traditionally handmade, with a unique texture that can only be achieved with this method, Waterstruck bricks are increasingly popular in modern architecture.
“Whether in the North, South, or somewhere in between, Imperial Bricks’ product range now has even more variations suitable for new builds, restoration, renovation and work on period or Listed properties in your region.
Weathered versions of the Red Waterstruck and Oxford Yellow Multi Waterstruck will be introduced later this year.”
