Choosing the right brick!
Choosing the right bricks is essential to creating a great brick slip. Our team of expert buyers and product developers are constantly looking at new handmade and reclaimed bricks to asses their suitability to our range.
Only the very best bricks get used and cut which is why we are regarded as one of the premium suppliers of this product type.
Manufacturing starts with the brick!
The vast majority of brick manufacturers are situated close to natural deposit of the raw material. Taking advantage of the readily available clay as its primary raw material in addition to sand and other waste products.
The primary ingredient, clay is one of the earth’s most abundant resources and has plentiful supply globally, and any waste from the manufacturing process of our products is always recycled.
The quality and colour of the clay, is massive part in the overall look of the finished brick, and subsequently brick types vary from factory to factory.
The carbon footprint and environmental impact we have as a brick slip manufacturer is kept to a minimum.
No Waste from this brick slip manufacturer!
During brick manufacture clay is removed in the forming process before the bricks go to the kiln. This material is always returned back to the production line.
This system is repeated when the bricks are then cut into slips.
Bricks and slips not meeting standards are rejected from the process line and crushed to be used as landscaping material.
There is virtually no waste of raw materials in manufacturing bricks and brick slips.
When we cut our water filtration is key
As the leading brick slip manufacturer in the UK we take pride in the technology that we invest in.
Although water has to be used in the cutting process of our brick slip production line. We make sure that our closed loop system re-uses water and ensures that it is constantly cleaned and filtered.
By using a system of connected storage tanks we are able to recirculate and reuse water constantly during manufacturing periods.
Our tailored and bespoke water system is one of the most advanced of its kind. Providing us with a constant supply of clean untainted cutting water and ensuring that all waste particles are extracted for further recycling.
Before and after our treatment you can see how this part of the process bears so much importance.
