Brick & Pistol

These bricks are used to maintain the brick coursing where shelf angles are introduced, creating external returns for brick slip cladding systems and creating brick clad lintels and soffit returns when adhered to structural support elements.

Dogleg Bricks
We stock a large range of special shaped bricks that turn brickwork through angles; and cant bricks that create chamfered vertical and horizontal features. The image on left shows a close-up view of the cut and bonded internal dogleg.

Bay Window Design 

 The skewback arch on the right which was designed and supported by a proprietary standard lintel. This example also shows a complete bay window with internal and external cut and bonded dog legs

Plinth Stretchers 

Plinth specials are often used to create a splay detail at the base of a building. They are also increasingly being used for corbel detailing and window surround details in association with angle and cant specials. Our image shows plinth stretchers allowing for a splay effect in brickwork.

Radial Brick 

Radial specials are primarily used to form circular detail brickwork in plan, without having tapered joints. They also give a true, concise curve to brickwork without the unattractive stepping that would otherwise be seen if standard facing bricks were used

Chimney 

 These bricks are increasingly being used for chimney detailing. We stock a large range that can cater to many different elegant designs for chimneys. Image shows a chimney built with single cants, cant stops, plinths and plinth returns.
