Hanson’s latest brick guide contains all the information needed to select the perfect brick for any newbuild, extension or renovation project and is available to builders’ merchants across the country.

The easy-to-use guide has been updated to incorporate the latest changes to the company’s extensive range of clay products, which includes Ecostock sustainable red and buff stock bricks, the original London brick and Cradley special shaped bricks. It also includes examples of a range of brick built residential projects for inspiration.

In addition it highlights Hanson’s new brick and block app – available to download free for iPhone, iPad and Android devices – which allows builders to quickly and easily make product selections and estimate the number of bricks and blocks required as well as locate their nearest stockist.

“Our comprehensive guide makes it easy for builders to select the right brick whether they are looking to choose a product for its sustainability credentials, colour, texture or size – or to match an existing one,” said Paul Lacey, head of sustainability and marketing at Hanson UK.

“It also provides information on the different tools available on the Hanson website that make it easy for builders to quickly and easily share their product choices with their colleagues and clients at the touch of a button.”
