METROBRICK Architectural Thin Brick Flashed Colors - Range
METROBRICK® thin brick offers a variety of colors with kiln fired flash - range variation.
It is desirable today to reproduce the wide range of colors found in bricks from the past. The lack of technical advancement in that time produced bricks with natural kiln fired shading - flashing. The old bee hive kilns were not able to closely control the firing of these bricks and depending on the location of the bricks in the kiln they could fire quite differently. This created a wide range of hues and tones from brick to brick. Today, thin brick manufacturers work to recreate these traditional looks. METROBRICK thin brick does this without the use of chemical or sprayed on flash. Instead, METROBRICK thin brick creates real flash in the kiln firing process, truly replicating traditional brick. METROBRICK thin brick shading looks natural because it is. And best of all, METROBRICK flash will not wear off because it is not a surface treatment, but instead part of the brick. Below are the kiln flashed colors METROBRICK thin brick offers.
METROBRICK® Architectural Thin Brick is type TBX thin brick designed to be used where precise sizing is required. METROBRICK® is a true kiln fired thin brick made to stringent guidelines making it suitable for use in precast, tilt-up, field applied and direct applied brick veneer applications.
METROBRICK® thin brick is 5/8 thick in comparison to the 4 thickness of a standard facing brick. The use of METROBRICK® thin brick presents a number of advantages when compared to the use of full bed brick. The natural resources and energy saved in production, shipping and construction and the insulation capabilities of a building system incorporating thin brick are prime examples.
METROBRICK® is available in a wide range of color options, finishes, and sizes. Custom blending of colors is also available. A selection of colors is available as an inventoried product for immediate shipment.
METROBRICK® Architectural Thin Brick meets and exceeds all Precast/Prestressed Concrete Institute Standards for Thin Brick. By meeting the standards set forth by the PCI, METROBRICK® is shown to be manufactured to a standard vital to the success of thin brick cast in concrete. Many thin bricks and face-cut full bricks being manufactured today cannot meet these rigorous criteria.
METROBRICK® is manufactured by Ironrock, centrally located in Canton, Ohio USA. Ironrocks history of manufacturing exceptional ceramic tile and brick products dates back to 1866.
