The Ibstock range of traditional stock bricks are manufactured at our smaller brickworks that have been producing bricks for centuries. They all use traditional techniques, with many of the bricks made by hand, giving them a distinctive character.
Restoration and refurbishment projects are often more demanding in terms of their brick requirements. Not only do they need to match up on colour but also in size. Ibstock offers the most comprehensive range of bricks in a variety of sizes taking into account regional demands for brick types and sizes.
With a choice of six vibrant gloss colours, the new colour™ range from Ibstock is a major breakthrough in service, offering quick delivery and superb value for money. The use of real ceramic glazed bricks is a practical option to add stunning highlights to your building projects.
This exciting new range creates a dramatic and elongated effect which accentuates the linearity of a façade. Linear’s distinctive dimension gives complete flexibility and extends design options, bringing a variety of effects to any building exterior.
The new range of Umbra shapes from Ibstock is designed to create intriguing and exciting shadow effects across a façade.
Elementix® is a comprehensive range of clay rainscreen cladding systems developed to offer the specifier unrivalled choice in façade finishes.
Fireborn® has extended its range of products and now offers even more alternatives. The popular large format clayblocks are now available in a range of new colours, textures and a new size up to 490mm.
Tilebrick replicates a tile-hung wall elevation without any of the hassle involved in traditional tile hanging. Tilebrick is also more robust than vertical tiling and is virtually maintenance free.
At Ibstock we have taken some of our environmental ideas and put them into action - creating a range of eco-products that can help meet the special environmental needs of a site - often now a requirement of the planning process. The importance of creating eco-habitats is now recognised in the Code for Sustainable Housing.

Local Schools help Ibstock Brick to plant the future
Schoolchildren from three schools in Ibstock teamed up with the UK’s largest brick maker, Ibstock Brick, to help plant 900 trees in the grounds of its Leicester Road factory, as part of its work to increase brick output with a new and additional state-of-the-art brick factory.
The project was the first planting phase of the 7000 trees planned for this spring, which will form part of the overall landscape screening around the site. More than 15,000 new trees will be planted upon completion of Ibstock’s new factory, which will be capable of producing an additional 100 million bricks per year – enough to build around 15,000 new homes.
After planning permission was granted for the development, which will create 50 full-time new jobs in the local area, Ibstock began its work to create new natural habitats to support local ecosystems and enhance the surrounding landscape.
Children and young people from St Denys Church of England Infants, Ibstock Junior School and Ibstock Community College were invited to take part. More than 280 pupils helped to plant a variety of trees over two days on 12 and 13 January.
Staff from Ibstock also visited Ibstock Community College prior to the planting days to explain more about the development and show the pupils how their efforts will help to create forested areas linking into the existing woodland plantations around the site.
Simon Ingram, Planning & Estates Manager (South) at Ibstock, comments: “We’re delighted with the level of enthusiasm all the pupils have shown for the project and their eagerness to help us plant the future of the Ibstock site. We hope the students will remember their experience and be proud of their achievement as the woodland they have planted grows around them.
“With a 200-year heritage of brick production in the area, we are proud to be investing in the future of UK brick making at our original base in Ibstock.”
David Phillips, principal at Ibstock Community College, said: “We were delighted that students from the college were able to have an active role in creating this new woodland.
“It gives them a stake in this important community venture and reminds them that we all need to think about issues such as the environment and sustainability.”
Ibstock anticipates the new factory will be ready to start production during 2017.
Making Light Work of Brick Faced Soffits
Making Light Work of Brick Faced Soffits
Posted on 13 November, 2015
Creating flawless brick-faced soffits and lintels has now become much simpler and quicker, thanks to a new lightweight stainless steel based system developed by two industry-leading companies – brick support specialist Ancon Building Products and Ibstock Kevington national manufacturer of brickwork and masonry special shapes and prefabricated components.
The new Nexus® system combines a specially developed Ibstock Kevington lightweight brick-faced steel unit with Ancon’s tried and tested MDC stainless steel bracket angle support system. The system offers contractors easier handling coupled with maximum adjustability, both vertically and horizontally, for quick and simple alignment on site.
The new system offers considerable benefits over traditional cast concrete alternatives – cutting weight by more than half, which in most cases will allow the brick-faced units to be installed without specialist lifting equipment, and significant savings in installation time – making it particularly appropriate for fast-track or time-limited projects.
Individual Nexus® units are designed and prefabricated off-site to suit different soffit dimensions, even modern deep soffits, so there is no cutting required on-site. They are simply offered up to the pre-fixed and pre-drilled Ancon MDC support system and then bolted into position using T-head bolts. The quality design allows units to be simply adjusted for perfect alignment and, once in position, all that is left is for the brick facing to be pointed for a seamless match with the main brickwork.
Nexus units can be fabricated using virtually any brick or masonry with the chosen product being specially selected and precision cut, generally from the same batch as the main façade to ensure a perfect visual match. Various brick patterns can also be specified to match individual project designs and styles.
All system components are of the highest quality, and engineered for economy and durability, with slips permanently bonded to the high grade stainless steel Nexus system using a BBA accredited bonding system. Nexus has been independently tested for long term durability by Lucideon, the independent global experts in materials testing, analysis and consultancy.
Ibstock Kevington Sales Director, Warren Dean said, “Nexus ® is an exciting new development that brings together the combined experience and expertise of two major companies – each market leaders in their own area. The advanced design will not only make it easier and quicker to specify and install modern brick-faced soffit and lintel features in a range of different building applications, but the two-part design means it will be far easier to achieve perfect alignment with the main brickwork façade.”
Further details and technical specifications for the Nexus® system are available in a new 4-page brochure, available to download
