Facing bricks

Discover facing bricks at Joseph Bricks

Take your design to the next level with smoked facing bricks; an exclusive brick with distinct architectural expression and identity. Play with shapes, structures and patterns and design something spectacular, unlike anything else out there with quality facade bricks. With more than 100 years of experience in the production of facing bricks, Joseph Bricks has continued to refine its unique production process. The result is durable facing bricks of the highest quality. A colourfast facade brick that stands the test of time – every time.


There are two types of brick in the Joseph Bricks range:

  • Smoked bricks: a high-quality basic brick, purchased from reputed top-class suppliers and then smoked to achieve a unique colour tone. These standard-shaped bricks are selected with the utmost care. 
  • Eco-smoked bricks: our own, exclusive bricks with special dimensions that we press, dry and fire ourselves. The firing and smoking are combined in a single cycle. We call this innovative production process eco-smoking, and it requires less gas and produces less CO2 emissions.

We have mastered the smoking process like no other. We continue innovating in order to make production ever more sustainable and to push the boundaries of this ancient product. We analyse the technical aspects of the facade bricks and study the impact of the temperature and length of smoking on the colour. By experimenting with these different parameters we can accomplish a unique end result. An exclusive façade brick that speaks for itself.

Smoked facing bricks: undisputed quality

Pure materials used in facing bricks add character to a building. The colour and structure of our facade bricks is achieved naturally. We use only premium clay and basic bricks, sourced from reputable top-class suppliers. This quality ensures that our bricks offer low water absorption and high-pressure resistance. Thanks to these properties the bricks remain cleaner for longer and require less maintenance. This has added benefits: the facing bricks are colourfast and have a lifespan of more than 100 years.


Personal, high-quality service is our priority at Joseph Bricks. We work with you. Our promised delivery is also a non-negotiable for us – we do what we say we’re going to do when we say we’re going to do it.
