What are Special Shaped Bricks - An Overview
Special Shaped Bricks are exactly what the name suggests; bricks specially designed to various shapes and dimensions to complement and contrast the standard metric or imperial brick.
The virtually limitless shapes provide flexibility, both in terms of aesthetics and functionality, giving architects the freedom to create distinctive buildings. However, with hundreds of Special Bricks on the market to choose from, finding the right shape, with the correct dimensions and angles has previously been a challenge.
At Wienerberger, our focus has always been on creating high quality, innovative products, but beyond that we also believe it’s our duty to make finding these products simple, quick and easy.
Special Shaped Bricks can significantly enhance the aesthetics of a building by providing architects and builders with more freedom to innovate in the field of design.
Beyond the numerous aesthetic benefits, Special Bricks can also provide seamless functionality, adding extra durability and protection to brickwork. They can even reduce build time and waste on-site as well as addressing any skills shortages by removing the need for hand cutting expertise.
In terms of their applications, Special Bricks can be used on virtually any project. From high-rise structures to bungalows they simply provide design flexibility, speed of build and a level of aesthetic detail that’s basically unachievable with standard metric or imperial bricks.
