The patented Bricks for the Future are the ideal house brick choice and are available in two sophisticated styles – the “Premium Range” and the “Designer Range”. They include subtle brick colours in either stunningly smooth or exposed aggregate surface textures. All bricks are made with six holes to assist bricklaying.

  • Colours and Style: Bricks for the Future offer a vast range of unique brick colours and textures. All Bricks for the Future are colourfast, the colour is blended throughout the brick i.e. not a surface coating that can chip off.
  • Low Maintenance: Bricks for the Future require minimal maintenance to keep them looking pristine. An advantage over cladding products is bricks allow the householder to enjoy their home without concerns on future maintenance.
  • Robust: Bricks for the Future are very strong and extremely noise resistant. Their fire resistance is perfect for Australia’s harsh environment. Bricks for the Future also have a security advantage over cladding options as due to their durability they resist termites and any other unwelcome visitors.
  • Affordable: Bricks for the Future have a high thermal mass producing a much cooler house in summer and a warm house in winter, therefore reducing household energy costs.
  • Sustainability: Bricks for the Future are manufactured to stand the test of time, no replacement costs. recycled aggregates are used where possible meaning landfill is reduced. Modern natural curing methods which reduce energy consumption are implemented, 100% captured water is used and CO2 emissions are reduced.

The Premium Range bricks are available in three distinct finishes.

SMOOTH FINISH Bricks have a consistent ultra-smooth texture and have the same surface finish all around the brick which includes very straight distinctive edges.

EXPOSED FINISH Bricks are treated after manufacture by shot blasting to create a distinctively unique appearance that exposes the aggregate on the brick face and on one end of the brick.

REFINED FINISH Bricks are treated after manufacture using our state of the art “Cassani” polishing and refining machine resulting in mirror like surface finishes.
