Imperial Bricks has announced the introduction of a brand new range of pressed and engineering bricks that can be used to match existing brickwork or surrounding properties for RMI and new build in the North and Midlands.
The new 3”/75mm bricks – Accrington Smooth Red, Blue Engineering and Manchester Pressed Red – are available from stock, the bricks are a viable alternative to hard-to-find and expensive reclaims.
Imperial Accrington Smooth Red (Class A) is a high-quality red engineering brick, colour matched to original Accrington stock bricks. Boasting extremely low water absorption and high compressive strength, this is a strong and durable brick suitable for all applications, including very exposed conditions.
“Accrington bricks are extremely difficult to source as a reclaimed brick due to the high damage rates during demolition. The Accrington blend is most commonly seen across commercial and residential buildings in Manchester, and was used for the foundations of both the Blackpool Tower and Empire State Building!” says Jason Hughes, Managing Director at Imperial.
The Imperial Blue Engineering (Class B) features an attractive metallic finish and is a strong and durable brick suitable for use below damp course proofing or to cap freestanding walls. It was traditionally blended with the Accrington Smooth Red in historic architecture.
The new Manchester Pressed Red features natural shade variations that replicate traditional pressed stock bricks found throughout Northern England, especially in iconic Manchester architecture.
“Following feedback from merchants, architects and builders in the region, these three new bricks will offer a unique solution for the North and Midlands”, adds Jason.
