Few materials lend themselves so effectively to the modern trend in design as does "Wunderlich” Enamelled Brick. Its •• colour, variety of texture, flexibility and structural strength all commend it.
The many standard colours that are available—a few of which are illustrated—offer to the Architect an unlimited scope for variety of treatment in geometrical design. Finished either smooth or matt textured, the glazed surface of the brick will not collect or absorb the dirt or grime of the atmosphere. As a structural unit, Enamelled Brick bonds with ordinary brickwork to impart greater strength to the walls of a building.
Enamelled Face Bricks have been used to a great extent in England, the Continent and America, as a complete facing to office and civic buildings, theatres, stores, etc.; also as a trim or decoration to spandrels, piers and band courses. In America the majority of the Buildings erected during the last few years have been faced with this medium.
Other applications embrace linings to corridors, restaurants, shops and shop fronts, bakeries, power stations, light wells, and to indoor and outdoor swimming pools; for the latter purpose in conjunction with Architectural Terra Cotta life rails and scum trough.
Enamelled Face Bricks are unexcelled in quality and durability; they do not scale or discolour even under the ' severest climatic conditions. Tests of the lighter colours have established that when used on the exterior of buildings, they increase the light at street-level by as much as 200 per cent, over darker materials, and that for flood lighting or night architecture they offer amazing possibilities.
"Wunderlich” Enamelled Face Bricks are available in a standard size of 9in. by 4£in. by 3in., glazed on the stretcher and header faces, and, if required, on the 9in. by 4iin. face; the latter is known as "side-face.” Standard specials in the form of Bullnose, etc., are also available.
