What are the main benefits / advantages of building with concrete bricks?

Aggregates – We can guarantee consistency of quality as we use the best aggregates available to ensure we are in complete control of the main raw materials used to produce our facing brick. All of our aggregates are sourced locally within the UK.

Strength – Our facing bricks exceed a minimum crushing strength in excess of 22N/ mm2 and comfortably exceed the performance requirements of the standard. And what’s even better is that Tobermore facing brick will gain strength with age.

Durability – Independent laboratory tests have been carried out and have proven that Lansdowne and Kingston are categorised as frost resistant (F2), offering high durability against the elements.

Voids – We manufacture Lansdowne and Kingston with three perforated voids in each brick. This provides significant benefits for a brick layer as the product bonds to the mortar on both sides and reduces the issue of floating.

Colour – Lansdowne and Kingston are produced in a choice of solid and blended colours which can be used to create complementary and contrasting features alongside our block paving and paving flag products.

Only the best Iron Oxide pigments available in the market are sourced to produce the distinctive colours. These pigments are manufactured to BS EN 12878 and offer excellent colour retention properties as demonstrated through completed projects that have been revisited years after construction and the colours still look as strong and vibrant as ever.
