Machine-made bricks include both those made using modern extrusion methods and those made in moulds but compressed with the aid of machines. They may also be called wirecuts or pressed bricks.

Machine made wirecut bricks

Reclaimed machine made bricks are larger than their modern equivalents

Most Victorian and newer bricks fall into the machine-made category as the first mechanised brick making machines were introduced early in the Industrial Revolution. These bricks tend to be more uniform in shape and size than earlier handmades, although there is still variation in size depending on individual and local makers’ preferences.

The majority of 19th and early 20th century bricks are larger than their modern counterparts, typically between 2¾” and 3¼” high. They are often known as “Imperial” bricks and measure 70-85mm high as opposed to the standard “metric” brick of 65mm.

We stock a range of options in reclaimed machine-made bricks for restorations, extensions and new buildings, often in quantities of several thousands (depending on availability).
