There is no more important decision you will make for your new home or renovation than the choice of bricks. It can be quite a daunting task but it has now been made that much easier with the release of a new brick brochure by Austral Bricks Queensland.

What’s the fuss you say? Well, according to Graham Kerby, Austral Bricks Queensland general manager sales & marketing, there have been so many new bricks released, just this year, that a new brochure was important to present to customers.

“We wanted to make sure our customers know they have an even wider selection of brick colours and sizes to choose from for their home.

“For instance we have introduced the Plantation Range with pastel tones and slightly rounded corners for delightful architectural effects. Then there is the Pavillion Range inspired by the stone-built empires of India’s highlands. Their double height size has captured the imagination of homebuilders throughout Queensland.

“And if you are looking for something so that you can say ‘now THAT’S a brick there is the beautiful Fresco Sandstone which is 2.5 times the size of a standard brick. Truly beautiful sandstone architectural effects are achieved with Fresco in typical Queensland style,” Graham Kerby says.

“Whatever look you want to achieve in your home is in our new brochure. It’s a celebration of the beauty and durability of brick with more colours, more choice and expert advice to inspire unique interpretations.

“Other distinctive bricks include the Premier Collection, the New Century Range, the Galaxy Range, the Bushmasters Collection, Early Settlers, Millennium Range all presented in panel swatches and architectural styles,” Kerby adds.

The new brochure also details the lifetime energy efficiency benefits of Austral Bricks thanks to their thermal mass. This is a big step in the right direction to achieving comfortable temperatures within the family home, whatever the outside climate, and of course reducing energy bills at the same time.
