Imperial Bricks Product of the Year: London Yellow Stock brick slips

The Yellow Stock brick slip from Imperial Bricks, the leading supplier of handmade and reclamation bricks, has been selected as its Product of The Year. Regionally matched to traditional London housing brickwork, the slip can be used externally or internally to replicate authentic period features or create a more contemporary lofthouse look.

The Yellow Stock brick slip has been used in Moonlight Drive, an elegant development of seven Belgravia-style mews properties in Forest Hill, London. Designed with a period charm to blend in with the surrounding area, the properties also have a modern luxury finish.

Working with Vanquish Iconic Developments and Clague Architects, Imperial Bricks supplied a custom blend of Yellow Stock and Reclamation Yellow Stock bricks for the project. The London ‘Yellow Stock’ brick became popular throughout London and its outskirts in the early 1900s. Imperial Bricks’ Reclamation Yellow Stock is darkened with soot and traces of lime mortar residue to replicate a traditional London reclaimed brick – but without the associated expense and wastage. Handmade Georgian Red bricks were used for decorative arch and band accent detailing.

Matching brick slips were installed internally as ‘exposed brickwork’ to give the space an upmarket, contemporary look. Imperial Bricks’ slips are carefully designed to replicate the colourblends and textures of traditional brickwork. Quick and easy to install, brick slips are ideal to create features and focal points such as patterned fireplaces with no major construction necessary. The slips are available in imperial (height 68mm) and metric (height 65mm) sizing, as well as corners.

Imperial Bricks has an extensive and unmatched range of 35 styles of bespoke handmade, wirecut and pressed bricks available in imperial and metric sizes with the ability to match the colours and textures of bricks in specific regional areas of the UK. With specification from architects, local authorities and developers growing strongly, the range is suitable for new build and renovation works including listed properties or those in conservation areas with extensive planning requirements.

Imperial Bricks is able to provide any of its bricks as a slip, including the popular Reclamation Yellow Stock, Shire Blend, Urban Weathered and Victorian Orange.
