The development of lightweight brick chimneys over the past 10 years has led to several different ways of achieving a traditional street scene without the need for traditionally constructed chimneys. Taylor Maxwell offers a range of finishes such as brick, render or stone, either as moulded GRP or clad in real brick slips and stone. Flaunched and standard chimney caps are available, together with 300 and 400mm pots.
We have a range of standard sized products available together with a bespoke service for any roof position and finish, all are covered with a full design service using the latest CAD technology.
Faux chimneys can be manufactured as Class 1 (for wood burning closed appliances only) or Class 2 (for gas appliances only). Lifting and fitting instructions are supplied. Prefab Chimneys can also be supplied with a 10-year product warranty against water ingression.
Taylor Maxwell offers a full range of prefabricated arches manufactured in most brick types in both lightweight and structural solutions. Structural brick clad arches are available as flat gauge, segmental and semi-circular, including a full traditional arch in red rubbers with pre-pointed 3mm joints.
Most brick face finishes can be supplied onto a range of backings including reinforced concrete, structural steel and several lightweight options. The soffit of the arch (underside) can be supplied with or without a brick slip finish, dependent upon your requirements.
There is a full design service available, and drawings would be supplied for approval prior to any manufacturing commencing, together with a full estimating service.
Wall cladding GRP panels with brick facings (brick slips) can complement existing brickwork, and are often used on stepped gables in housing developments. These decorative wall panels with brick slips can be quickly and easily installed in most weather conditions, providing a solution to areas that would often be problematic to achieve in traditional brickwork. Fully tested and certified for external use, these wall panels can also be used internally for decorative purposes. Manufactured from real bricks these systems are indistinguishable from traditionally laid brickwork once installed.
A full range of internal and external corners are available, together with window reveals, soldier courses and arches. Offered in range of standard components, together with a fully bespoke service, we would be happy to discuss your design requirements on a project by project basis. Please contact your nearest Taylor Maxwell Office for further information.
Taylor Maxwell offers a full range of British Standard and non- standard specials, as both cut and bonded and refaced bricks. These can be manufactured quickly and efficiently using the very latest techniques, often eliminating the extended delivery periods associated with manufactured specials.
We offer technical assistance with design on special shapes and will collect bricks from site to ensure a colour match between specials and facing bricks. All products are supplied to site clearly labelled and protectively shrink wrapped. We have a national coverage and are able to offer this service throughout the UK.
