As well as providing users with all the relevant information surrounding Special Bricks, we also want to ensure customers are supported in making informed decisions about a product that can often be quite complex. To do this we offer a support service in which customers can liaise with a member of our Specialist Products team who will be happy to ensure all questions are answered and all products satisfy both customer expectations and project requirements.

Because of their almost limitless aesthetic capabilities, as well as their functional properties, Special Shaped Bricks should be strongly considered when designing a build. While there is a perception that these bricks are an expensive additional cost, Specials have a number of benefits, such as enhancing aesthetics, protecting brick work from weathering, reducing onsite costs and finally, addressing the skills shortage by reducing the need for cutting on site.

Ultimately, our new online platform aims to ensure that all our customers are given clear, accurate and helpful information on special shaped bricks, all in one place; thereby reducing the time spent in the initial stages of the project. And what’s more? The website gives you the chance to see how the Special bricks work – not just to read about it.

The site is now live and ready to help you select the perfect brick special for your next project. Visit www.specialbricks.wienerberger.co.uk today to start your search.
