How are Waterstruck Bricks made?

The waterstruck manufacturing process gives bricks their distinctive aesthetic.

Firstly, we must look into the clay properties. The soil biodiversity encompasses an essential characteristic of how the brick will look.

Additionally, each Waterstruck Brick has a unique texture because the moulding and demolding procedures employ water.

In contrast to wirecut bricks, the wet clay is compressed into moulds moistured with water to avoid adhering. Then, the surplus clay is struck off the tops of the moulds, thus the name. Like all other brick manufacturing processes, the last step is to dry and fire the bricks.

This brick-making technique creates a natural texture and a gorgeous rustic finish not achieved with any other brick manufacturing process.

Why should architects choose Waterstruck Bricks?
