The efficiency of pre-cast with the aesthetics of handmade

Off Site Solutions

Imagine a brick with the unmatched looks of a handmade but with the speed and accuracy of a Pre-Cast system.

The majority of pre-cast brick systems on the market today offer a limited choice of brick surface finishes. If you wanted the speed & control of a pre-cast system you were forced to compromise on the finish. Not anymore!

Coleford are proud to offer pre-cast products, produced using the traditional handmade process, with the all the advantages but none of the compromise.

Available in our entire colour range we can produce all the special shapes, imperial & bespoke size bricks suitable for casting.

Our proven products have been used on many high profile and award winning pre-cast projects throughout the country.

If you are already using pre-cast techniques for your projects the Coleford system offers many cost, efficiency and aesthetic advantages over cutting standard machine made products.

Slip Bricks

For those projects where the use of real brick is impossible or impractical Coleford slips could provide the answer. Coleford clay slips utilize the same material and manufacturing techniques as our facing bricks.

Contemporary or traditional, brick is still the finish of choice for many architects & developers. Coleford’s slips can be produced in metric, imperial or bespoke sizes in our entire colour range.

A rustic finish is also available in each colour should the project demand the traditional weathered handmade.
