Thin Brick is Real Brick
Clay, sand, water, air, and fire. These are the elements of brick. Nature gives genuine brick a quality that other building materials cannot match. Brick speaks of stability. It crosses cultures. It can convey warmth or coolness. It lends itself to every design style, from the traditional to the ultra-modern. There is simply no substitute for the enduring nature of authentic brick.
Unlike brick substitutes, such as cast, pressed, or molded concrete, Royal Thin Brick manufactures real bricks – thin. Royal Thin Brick is a true brick, made from mined materials, extruded, and kiln-fired. In other words: Royal Thin Brick delivers the exceptional looks, authenticity, and performance of any high-quality brick, but with a narrower, 5/8″ profile. Because Royal Thin Brick does not require a foundation like full brick, it can be used almost anywhere you desire.
Royal Thin Brick Uses Local Materials
Northeast Ohio and Western Pennsylvania are rich in the natural resources used in the craft of brickmaking. This is why the region has been a prolific producer of high-quality bricks since the 19th century. Royal Thin Brick is part of this long tradition, sourcing the clay and shale used in its bricks from local mines.
The Benefits of Royal Thin Brick
