New ‘Regency’ bricks from Imperial – fantastic ongoing availability!

  • 6 Jan 2022

Imperial Bricks has launched a new ‘Regency’ range, available now on short lead times.

Jason Hughes, Imperial’s Managing Director, comments: “The Regency range is made to our specification by a partner factory in Europe. In view of the current brick shortages and in line with demand, we asked our factory to produce in excess of 6 million bricks in imperial and metric sizes, available on short lead times.

“We also have large quantities in stock here in the UK. The new bricks have proved very popular already with merchants and their developer/self-build customers.”

Imperial’s Regency Orange Multi and Regency Red Multi bricks are soft textured, handmade bricks, with natural creasing on the face. Regency Orange Multi is a blend of predominantly orange shades with 5-20% reds, while Regency Red Multi features mostly red bricks with a small percentage of oranges.

This natural colour variation is the result of subtle temperature changes in the coal fired kilns, which gives the bricks their attractive, unique character.

Regency Chesham is a unique by-product of these blends which is, available within the range, but in smaller quantities. Accentuated with pale faces and characterful overburns, Regency Chesham is also available in metric and imperial sizes. 

‘Ideal for new build and refurb projects’

Jason continues: “Our new Regency range is ideal for new build and refurb projects in all areas of England. We also offer a tumbled option – processed using our new facilities at Bridgnorth – which exactly replicates the look and appeal of reclaimed bricks.

“This is available on a slightly longer lead time due to the processing, but customers tell us it’s well worth the wait as the tumbled bricks are indistinguishable from original reclaims!

“Every time we send developers to see these bricks in use/build, these are the bricks they end up selecting/specifying. I would strongly recommend all merchants supplying bespoke rural properties to consider these bricks.”

All of the bricks in the range are F2 rated for frost resistance and manufactured to BS EN 771-1. All the factories Imperial Bricks uses meet strict ethical and quality assurances: at least six out of seven internationally recognised manufacturing and supply standards.
