Danish Pattern Brick and Soaps
Replica Danish pattern brick
are cement reproductions of the low fired clay slump brick brought from
Europe or produced locally for use in our historic buildings and public
works. There was much variation in the size of the originals, and
after extensive random sampling we determined an average size to be 9"
long by 4 1/4" wide by 1 3/4" thick. The length and width of our brick
are somewhat regular; the thickness varies more as both the original
brick and the replica are slump brick products. The 'soaps'
are brick 8 1/2" long by 4 1/4" wide by 3/4" thick, to be used on
floors or walks where the full thickness brick are unnecessary or too
thick to match the adjacent tile. Our new vehicular brick are
8 1/12" X 4 1/4" X 2 1/4" and are suitable for use in driveway
installations, either on a slab or dry laid on a bed of 1/4" minus rock
topped with a dry layer of this aggregate and 20% cement.
All types of brick are available in many colors including the traditional Danish earth tones. They are suitable for floors, walkways, arches, flower boxes, etc.; in new construction, additions and restoration, in combination with our tile or other masonry products. Please also seal and maintain these Portland cement products in the same manner as our tile. Please do not acid wash or pressure wash our colored concrete products.
