Imperial Bricks launches new 3″ bricks for North & Midlands

Imperial Bricks has launched new 3" bricks for the North and Midlands

Following extensive product development, we’ve introduced a new range of pressed and engineering bricks.

The new 3”/75mm bricks – Accrington Smooth Red, Blue Engineering and Manchester Pressed Red – can be used to match existing brickwork or surrounding properties for RMI and new build in the North and Midlands. 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.

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 Accrington bricks in historic architecture.
