The Butterley heritage brand has been reintroduced for 2016 as the new name for our extruded brick range.
Synonymous with brick making in the UK for over 150 years, the current range of Butterley wirecut extruded bricks are available in a choice of colours and textures, offering everything you need from classic to contemporary.
Here at Forterra, we manufacture red, buff, yellow, brown, blue and grey bricks in a number of textures: a smooth finish, which gives a consistent, uniform character; light textured, which is modern and uniform, with an indented or printed finish; heavy textured, which has a harder and rougher texture for a more rustic brick with a consistent finish; and tumbled, a distressed and irregular shape associated with reclaimed bricks.
