Imperial answers demand with new Restoration Waterstruck bricks

Restoration Waterstruck

We’ve introduced new Restoration Red and Restoration Oxford Yellow Multi Waterstruck bricks in response to increasing demand for regionally appropriate variations. These traditional handmade bricks are made using a relatively soft clay, with water used as the releasing agent for the moulding process, giving them a smoother appearance, while still retaining character. The new additions work well in the renovation of period properties, extensions, boundary walls as well as high-end new builds.

Bricks vary in colour and composition across the UK, and our range of 50+ handmade, wirecut and pressed bricks includes options for every region.

The Oxford Yellow Multi Waterstruck brick is designed to suit properties found across Oxfordshire, Cambridgeshire, East Coast and East Anglia. A Restoration version with a weathered (reclamation) finish is also available. The brick was recently used on a Grade 1 listed castle in Kent for a sensitive repair and stabilisation project.

The Restoration Red Waterstruck is suitable for most regions across the UK. “We have a sustainable supply of both new bricks which are fully tested to BS EN 771-1 and F2 rated for frost resistance,” adds Jason Hughes, Managing Director here at Imperial Bricks. “They can be found in our Brick Matcher app, which offers an on-the-go guide to our complete range, available for iPhones and Android phones.”
