Waterstruck Brick

Water-struck Brick has become symbolic of the mindset and cultural fabric of New England: hard, somewhat irregular in appearance, steadfast but unpredictable, and stubbornly able to withstand adversity and thrive in a hostile physical climate. First fired in the 17th century in Medford, Massachusetts, from clay from the Mystic River flats, water-struck brick was the essential building block of Georgian New England and remains the choice for institutions and individuals seeking links to the great tradition of building in that part of the world.

Extruded Brick

Extrusion is the most common brick manufacturing process used today. Extruded brick are created when clay or shale is augured in a vacuum and forced through a rectangular die under pressure. 

 

Prior to firing in a kiln, extruded brick can be smooth or textured in non-repeating degrees of roughness. This type of our brick allows designers the flexibility to create a wide variety of sizes, textures and colors to use in near infinite combination. 

 

Extruded Brick is generally more uniform in dimension than moulded brick. It performs well in designs requiring more precise tolerances such as stack bonds. For decades, Morin brick has utilized the extrusion manufacturing process to provide a variety of texture choices and color combinations suitable to most design requirements.
