Ironrock, a ceramic tile and thin brick manufacturer located in Canton, Ohio, has a new line of thin brick veneer called Royal Thin Brick®. Royal Thin Brick is kiln fired and tumbled thin brick made from locally sourced and recycled clay and shale.
Like full bed facing brick, 5/8”-thick Royal Thin Brick is extruded and fired at temperatures exceeding 2,000°F. The extrusion process and hard firing create a very durable product that is low absorption. After firing, the thin bricks are tumbled to create a distressed and naturally worn appearance.
Royal Thin Brick can be installed using tile-setting methods or with a thin brick installation system. Because they are low absorption and extremely durable, they can be used both indoors and out. Royal can also be used as a thin paving brick — even in heavy foot traffic areas. Royal is ideal for both wall and floor installations.
Royal Thin Brick is available in queen size (2 3/4” x 7 5/8”). The queen size is taller than modular brick, which helps accent the tumbled edges and gives the bricks a robust appearance. The surface of the bricks is a wire cut texture — a traditional brick finish.
Royal Thin Brick is available in 10 colors and five color blends. Colors include beiges, soft gray, brick reds, reddish browns, dark brown, and black. There are also shade variations in the palette.
Ironrock is also the manufacturer of METROBRICK Architectural Thin Brick and Metropolitan Ceramics quarry tile. For more information about Royal Thin Brick or other Ironrock products, visit www.ironrock.com.
