Metrobrick Adds New Texture to Thin Brick Offering

METROBRICK®, a product line of Ironrock located in Canton, Ohio, has introduced a new surface texture – wire cut – to its line of thin brick. The wire cut texture is designed to create a surface with slight gouges and pulls in the face of the brick. The small ridges and crevices add character and create symmetry from brick to brick.

The addition of wire cut to the METROBRICK® product line adds a coarse brick look that is most associated with the surface texture of some traditional facing brick. This addition to the METROBRICK® product line will give architects even more options – for matching existing construction for example – when specifying METROBRICK®. The four texture options available in the METROBRICK® product line are smooth, velour, wire cut, and iron spot.

METROBRICK® is better than TBX grade and is designed to fit properly in all tilt-up liners. The superior technical aspects of the product are well established. The addition of a wire cut texture broadens the aesthetics of the product line.

METROBRICK’s parent company Ironrock has a long history of manufacturing brick and tile products dating back to 1866. Ironrock is a family owned fifth generation company located in Canton, Ohio.

After many years as a successful quarry tile manufacturer, Ironrock expanded its product line and began focusing on thin brick production over ten years ago. Ironrock incorporates the same tight quality standards that are used in manufacturing tile in producing thin brick.
