Dyebrick used to camouflage crack repair!

Dyebrick was used to great effect when a solution was required to disguise some obvious repair work that could be seen for miles!

The old Horton Kirby paper mill chimney in Dartford Kent was refurbished by Churchill Steeplejacks as part of a new residential development by Fairview Homes.

The brick chimney standing at 75m tall was also slightly reduced in height by a Churchills. Once the chimney had been reduced to the required height the summit was be capped off, and a new lightning protection system was installed.

Dyebrick ‘Brick-Age’ was used for some of the new brick-up areas at the base and ‘Charcoal’ and ‘Khaki’ Brick Tinting Kits were used for tinting the old crack repair.

A ‘Nice’ Addition To The Dyegrout Range!

Dyegrout, our sister Company, was the first choice for the new ‘Nike Orange’ Advertising Campaign as a strong and vibrant colour was required for special tile display units. We custom matched their bright orange brand-colour with a special high-grade flourescent pigment blend.

We are also launching this new colour (called ‘Nice’ Orange) with our new Vibrant Tile-Grout Range early in the New Year.
