London Stock Brick Swatch launched

Brick matching – in London, that is –  just got easier with the launch of Hanson’s brick guide

The swatch contains details of 23 London stock bricks and is intended to make the life of architects and contractors easier when it comes to brick matching

The guide is available to builders’ merchants across the country.

Paul Lacey, Hanson’s national marketing manager, said: “The original London brick is over 130 years old and has been used in the construction of over five million homes across the UK.

“The new guide builds on the success of our previous London brick swatches and its accurate colour reproduction will make it easy for builders and specifiers to match bricks from the brochure with existing housing stock on site.”

Hanson has produced an A1 poster and counter box display unit for the guides. Builders’ merchants can request copies by calling 0330 123 1017, emailing or visiting
