Our Sandstock bricks honour an important part of our history, the traditional method of brick making. Only a handful of companies still make these ͚Convict Bricks͛. Incredibly wet clay is dropped into large sawdust-lined moulds to produce solid bricks with very individual rough and irregular textures and shapes, giving them their hand-made character and beautiful appearance.

With over 1000 timber products in the Havwoods portfolio our passion for wood is indisputable, but occasionally we find a non-wood product which impresses us enough to include it. TrikBrik is one such product. You can recreate the Servian Wall overnight, emulate the Arc de Triomf in under a week, or simply turn pillars of plaster into pillars of stone in a day; if you’ve a mind to do something special, this is the product which will enable you to bring it to life.
Contemporary design is all about textures, so brick and stone now feature strongly in interiors. The downside is that they are heavy, messy to fit and require a skilled labour force; brick slips make use of any existing structure, but are equally as messy and are still best left to a bricklayer. TrikBrik is completely different: designed as a metre square interlocking cladding panel system, it comes complete with mastic and paints (sometimes several to achieve the effect) to hide the joins, and it enables you to achieve authentic-looking brick and stone walls and other features, quickly and cleanly using unskilled labour.
The patented manufacturing system is the result of no less than 30-years research. High density polyurethane, polyester resin and crushed marble stone produce an exceptionally light yet durable, highly realistic panel, with excellent thermal, acoustic and flame retardant properties. TrikBrik is water repellant and non-permeable, so will not be affected by humidity; nor will it fade in the sun. The panels are easily cut to size, requiring no special tools, and can be treated with anti-graffiti formula if required. Furthermore, they can be repainted with a polyester resin paint; so when your Arc de Triomf starts to pall in red, you can always paint it purple.
