The new Austral Bricks Display Centre at Rochedale has set the benchmark for brick and paver selection with an inspirational new 21st century merchandising concept. The new display incorporates other building elements such as glass, mirrors, stainless steel and timber to create the right environment for product selection.

The innovative display features different styles of brickwork. Austral Bricks have categorised the products on display into four themes to suit a variety of design tastes in an inspirational fashion. These categories include Architectural, Contemporary, Coastal and Country showcasing latest brick and paver creations. A variety of colour, texture and form are present to inspire bold, subtle, dynamic or sleek and modern architecture.

The display centre is multi-faceted with Bristile Roofing presenting their Contemporary Prestige range, a flat tile profile for customers who want to create the minimalist look. Eureka also have on display, the new Burlesque brick collection with their high gloss and fully glazed finish, at the new display centre.

The entire display centre is based on the versatile and stylish Riviera Freedom pavers including the latest addition to the colour range – Torino. The new Torino charcoal grey paver is suitable for outdoor living or pool areas and features the Paveshield, a surface-protectant resisting staining, making the pavers easier to keep clean and extending the life of the paver. Riviera Freedom pavers are available in seven contemporary shades.

The display reflects future changes in trends and fashions by introducing new products, such as Metallix, Sovereign and Silhouette. As new architectural styles in housing and construction arrive, the Rochedale Display Centre will mirror those developments also.

The importance of the thermal mass benefits of bricks is now being highlighted as a major component in reducing energy usage for heating and cooling and for sustainable housing. The Austral Bricks consultants will advise on how to increase the amount of bricks in homes to maximise thermal mass.
