The Nubrik pressed red bricks from Austral Bricks returns to Victoria’s building market in style.

The solid, pressed bricks exude quality and will maintain their appeal and durability for generations to come.

Delivering traditional elegance and colour in a genuine solid brick, the Nubrik press bricks are manufactured in a traditional way, using carefully selected clays that are moulded on century-old brick presses and fired in high-temperature kilns, in order to create an authentic brick with solid strength, and timeless, individual character.

According to Mr Richard West, Marketing Manager for Austral Bricks in Victoria, Nubrik pressed reds are part of Victoria’s history, describing the bricks as the building blocks of the city. Used in most of the city’s iconic historical buildings, the red pressed bricks have been a preferred choice for Melbourne’s builders continuously for over the last 100 years.

Austral Bricks’ presses have been moulding these excellent bricks for almost a century, with the same brick presses still at work today, creating authentic pressed bricks for yet another generation, using newer technologies and robotics.

Made in Austral Bricks’ recently constructed state-of-the-art new factory at Wollert in Melbourne’s outer North, the Nubrik range features the same authentic material, straight edges, clean face and consistent colour.

In both manufacturing and in residential design, the Nubrik pressed brick range from Austral Bricks represents the latest design and manufacturing innovations with the best elements from Melbourne’s past.

Austral Bricks is part of the Brickworks Building Products Group, one of Australia’s largest manufacturers of bricks, pavers, masonry blocks, retaining wall systems, roofing, precast concrete panels, façade systems and landscaping products, with its stable of brands including Austral Bricks, Austral Masonry, Austral Precast, Bristile Roofing and Auswest Timbers.
