The Snowie Heritage Brick was first introduced into the market place in 1996 as a quality match for the old type brickwork in many cities. It has been used extensively in the United Kingdom and has been specified because of its high compressive strength and F2 category, designed to withstand severe exposure. Due to the excellent match the brick is with old brickwork, planning departments within local councils have requested that the bricks be used in areas of conservation.
The bricks can also be used in a dual application with the main face having a dark stain on the surface to replicate a weathered inner city look and the reverse side of the brick a more clean purpose made common appearance. This can be a great advantage when taking on renovation projects that need more than one brick type to complete the task, thus saving money and time in not having to choose two bricks.
Over 40 million Snowie Heritage Bricks have been sold in the Liverpool and Manchester areas alone, which would confirm the acceptability of the brick. The brick is available in 65mm & 73mm smooth or dragface.
Our brick range is manufactured using clays won locally in Scotland. Strict quality control procedures are incorporated in the manufacturing process and each brick type is independently tested to ensure compliance with the relevant European Standards.
