Arriscraft Adds Architectural Linear Series Brick Production at Georgia Plant
CAMBRIDGE, ONTARIO – Arriscraft, manufacturer of naturally-made products that emulate quarried stone, has added production of its incredibly popular Architectural Linear Series Brick (ALSB) at the Fort Valley, Georgia plant. This elongated brick rivals the premium, long brick offered by European companies. Arriscraft is the stone products group of General Shale, the North American subsidiary of Wienerberger AG and a leading manufacturer of brick, one of the world’s oldest green building materials.
“Since introducing ALSB in 2018, we’ve had overwhelming interest. By adding production at our Georgia plant, it’s now easily accessible to major markets in the southern United States. This long, elegant brick features a distressed finish that designers love,” says Marta Zonneveld, Marketing Manager. “Our Georgia version features an even slimmer face rise and four new colors to add to the existing colors available from Canada.”
This Architectural Linear Series Brick is 2-1/8″ high in random lengths up to 23-5/8″ (depth is standard at 3-¾”). Installing this one large size is simple and efficient. To augment the full product offering, Arriscraft has added four exclusive Georgia colors: Burnt Umber, Cedar Woods, Harbor Grey, and White Pearl.
Arriscraft’s Natural Process technology uses only natural materials (plus color pigments) and replicates how stone is created in the earth. This proprietary process creates stone with the natural aesthetics and durability of quarried stone, plus the convenience of standard installation and unlimited supply.
Arriscraft manufactures a vast range of premium stone for commercial and residential projects, including full-bed Renaissance® Masonry Units and Building Stone, Thin-Clad adhered and clipped veneers, Adair® Limestone, and cast accessories. Designers can select from a truly comprehensive line of styles – from old-world to contemporary – in natural colors, with custom applications available.
