what are brick specials used for?

Brick specials can be used in various ways, such as in the construction of arches, window surrounds, and decorative panels. They can also be used to create patterns and textures on the façade of a building. Additionally, specially shaped bricks can be used to create curved walls or other unique architectural features.

Decorative or specially shaped bricks are also utilised on new build projects as they create an attractive effect, giving designers the flexibility to add a touch of creativity and individuality to a building. It allows architects and designers to experiment with different styles and create visually interesting structures, creating distinctive qualities to complement and contrast a standard metric or imperial brick. Whether it is a modern, contemporary design or a traditional, historical look, these bricks can be used to enhance the overall appearance of a building and are particularly suited to traditional architecture, meaning they continue to be very popular in the UK.
