Boral Unveils Architectural Design Brick Series

Words: Dan Kamys Boral Unveils Architectural Design Brick Series


Boral Bricks has launched four brick collections within its new Architectural Design Series. The series is intended for commercial construction and consists of the following: Freedom collection, Liberty collection, 17th Century collection and Main Street collection.

“Our new Architectural Design Series offers classic beauty and strength as a commercial brick option,” said Bob Kepford, president of Boral Bricks. “This new series validates Boral’s rich history and tradition of brick making for any style of construction. We feel we are poised to become a major player again in commercial brick as the economy continues to improve.”

The Main Street collection consists of Boral’s traditional red and red range of colors and textures in a modular size brick. The Main Street collection features 13 unique colors, including Chocolate Wirecut, Meltone Range, Red Wirecut Bostonian and Select Smooth Red to name a few.

The Freedom and Liberty collections are traditional commercial brick in a modular style. The Freedom collection comes in seven colors, including Citadel, Manhattan, Pebble, Regiment, Sunset, Varsity and Wheat. The Liberty collection comes in six colors, including Battleship, Bisque, Cannon, Freedom, Merlot and Slate.

The 17th Century collection is similar to Boral’s residential 17th Century brick. Slight irregularities and softer shape help mimic a historic look. Each brick is unique in that it is created in a sand-dusted wooden box, so no two bricks are exactly alike. The 17th Century collection is available in modular and queen sizes. The collection comes in the following colors for the modular style, Cambridge, Chateau, L200/232 and S200/232. In the queen style, the collection includes Buckskin, Dover, Normandy, Orleans and Regency.
