Further extending its industry leading collection of bricks, Ibstock has launched ‘The Manor Range’, an attractive range of bricks which have been specifically designed to replicate traditional finishes from the past.

The range consists of five new products, four red and one buff, which will enable architects and housebuilders to create exciting and interesting street scape for any development, helping buildings to sit perfectly within their environment.

The innovative process used to create Ibstock’s new Manor range involves rolling back the upper most layer of clay using wire, before a specialist piece of equipment, which has been developed by Ibstock, then presses the clay back on top to produce a distinctive three dimensional surface texture that is very different from anything else available in the market. The bricks are then set in a unique way, ready for firing in the kiln which helps to ensure the surface texture is protected.

All of the products in the range utilise this unique texture and are available in a palette of exciting colours which include the Allerston Blend, the Coughton Buff Blend, the Otley Blend, the Stokesay Blend and the Tattershall Blend.
