Hanson's extended brick range means more choice for architects and builders


Hanson Building Products has extended its 65mm Abbey range with the launch of two new clay bricks. The Abbey Buff Multi and Abbey Red Multi have been designed to complement the existing Abbey Blend.

Architects, specifiers, developers and housebuilders will appreciate the choice and versatility of this extended product range. These bricks are designed for use on a wide variety of projects, from housing and public sector to retail and commercial developments.

Produced at Hanson’s Howley Park factory in West Yorkshire, these bricks conform to the highest quality standard within BS EN 771-1. In addition, they are manufactured to an enhanced tolerance guarantee, adding to the overall quality and long-term performance of the bricks, providing customers with extra reassurance when specifying and using these products.

In keeping with Hanson’s long-term commitment to retain its position as a sustainable business and contribute to sustainable development, all Hanson bricks are now produced at factories certified to ISO 14001. The Howley Park factory, in particular, utilises landfill gas which provides up to 40% of the energy input to the kilns. This additional energy efficiency contributes further to the reduction of the company’s carbon footprint.

The UK’s leading manufacturer and supplier of bricks, Hanson offers an unrivalled selection in terms of range, size and shape to suit every application. With over 300 colours and textures available, customers can choose from an extensive choice of buffs, yellows, browns, reds, greys, blacks and blues. Recognising that texture can prove as important as colour, the company offers a full range – from smooth, light textured and heavy textured to tumbled and stock. As an added customer service, Hanson has also developed an innovative brick visualiser to ease the selection process for architects, specifiers, developers and builders.

The attractive new additions to the Abbey range are accompanied by an extensive assortment of special shapes. For more information and/or to request samples, contact Hanson on 08705 258258.
