Cant, Squint & Sill Bricks

reclaimed blue cant bricks used as a window sill

Reclaimed blue cant and squint bricks add character to brickwork

We stock new and reclaimed cant, squint and sill bricks in various sizes and configurations. Cant and squint bricks are shaped to create angles in brickwork. Sill bricks are specially designed for brick window sills.

Cant bricks have one (Single Cant AN.5.2) or two (Double Cant AN.6.2) angled corners. They can be used to create returns or blunted corners around windows, doorways or arches or for a stepped feature effect in brickwork. Cants also make effective window sills and double cants are often used as brick copings on top of walls.

Squint bricks have variously angled ends (usually 45° but also 30° and 60°) and are used to change the direction of walls. Laid in the ground, they could also be used as create a zigzag style path edging.

Sill bricks are specially shaped bricks for windowsills that include a built-in drip mould underneath (a groove cut into the underside of the brick to dispel water).

In our extensive range of Brick Specials, including cant, squint and sill bricks, we carry both new (class A and concessions) and reclaimed bricks. Concessions are fully compliant with building regulations but have been purchased as seconds due to minor aesthetic imperfections, allowing us to offer them to customers at large discounts. They are ideal either where products won’t be seen or a variable, non-standard appearance is desirable.

We also have various new, handmade brick specials. These are new, handmade bricks traditionally made in moulds that replicate the appearance of reclaimed bricks but are reliably available in larger quantities. They are frost-proof and made with authentic colouration and a distressed face for a convincing reclaimed look.
