Take A Closer Look At What’s New

As part of our ongoing focus on product development and to ensure our Smeed Dean offering is the most comprehensive available in the UK we have recently added two new bricks to our Smeed Dean range.

The first is the Smeed Dean Belgrave (left) which has been reintroduced due to popular demand. It is a traditional plain London Yellow Stock brick with a lightly sanded texture to give a soft, but clean appearance.

The second new addition is the Smeed Dean Mile End Mixture (right), a reclaimed style brick with traditional London tones combined with a distinctively distressed natural weathered effect.

We have also recently invested in our capabilities to produce a wide range of special shaped bricks at Smeed Dean. The range includes both purpose-made and cut-and- bond options that can be tailored to our customers specific requirements. Our high quality cut-and- bond specials are even available within 10 working days from when they are ordered.
