The technical information below is provided for builders to outline delivery and maintenance procedures when using our bricks.
Delivery and Installation
Selkirk clay bricks and pavers are manufactured using natural clays and minerals and are then kiln fired. This process results in natural colour variations between individual units, packs and manufacturing runs. The product colours shown in this brochure may vary to the actual product available at the time of order, subject to variations that occur during manufacture and the limitations of photography and printing.
NATURAL VARIATIONS IN CLAY
When considering your design please remember that Selkirk clay bricks are manufactured using natural clays and minerals and fired at extremely high temperatures. The natural variations in both the clay and firing process often means textures, size and colour including flashing will vary from batch to batch, therefore colour variation between manufacturing runs is possible.
Brick Cleaning (High Pressure Water)
For best results, clean bricks by hand during installation. High pressure water jets may be used to remove minor mortar stains from clay brickwork.
Brick Cleaning (Hydrochloric Acid)
For best results, clean bricks by hand during installation. Hydrochloric acid is used to remove mortar stains from clay brickwork.
