It’s the first time a new handmade version – created using the traditional manufacturing methods – has been made available to the market. With imperial and metric sized options and fully F2 rated, it’s suitable for new build and RMI.
The York Clamp is fired in a traditional kiln which retains the characteristics of the ‘clamp’ firing method. The partial reduction of oxygen in the kiln creates a band of reds, purples and yellows to exactly match ‘Clamp’ bricks from the area.
Jason Hughes, Managing Director here at Imperial comments: “Its unique appearance is down to the lack of temperature control, in the kiln or ‘clamp’, resulting in lots of different colours, banding and no uniformity. It’s a complex brick to replicate. We carried out a detailed study of more than 200 buildings and analysed numerous samples to create a product that is identical to the original brick, and beautiful too.
“Our in-house brick matching team has seen a steady increase of projects for renovations and extensions in the North that require a York Clamp brick but have experienced problems with the quality and stock numbers of reclaimed originals. We anticipate a further rise in demand following the launch of the latest addition to our range.”
