Nowhere is brick's creative versatility better expressed than in the making of architectural shapes. Beautiful, precise and lasting, Glen-Gery brick shapes fit even the most imaginative design palette. 

The versatility of our brick shapes isn't limited by standard designs. For unusual design situations, Glen-Gery's highly capable brick craftsmen produce customized brick shapes. This is a rigorous test of the brickmaker's art, demanding skill and experience that few manufacturers share. Preparing custom shapes takes longer than making standard types, and the process requires detailed, contractor-approved drawings prior to production. But the results are stunning – a unique product, specifically tailored to make your project as visually appealing as it can be.

Water Tables

 

 

Water tables, once used to reduce water penetration, are now used by architects and designers to achieve decorative design details. These details can range from the use of a single style for simplicity to a combination of styles to achieve highly ornate brickwork. In addition to their traditional use, these shapes can be used to add dimension to flat walls, rotated to form door and window jambs, or inverted to form cornice brickwork. Continuity of design can also be transferred into the landscape by using the water tables as caps for walls or edging accents for walkways.

Sills, Copings & Treads

 

 

The basic function of copings and sills is to reduce the potential for water penetration. This is easily and attractively accomplished with a variety of Glen-Gery brick shapes. Their profiles, whether angular or curvilinear, add distinctive detailing to wall caps, windows, and door openings. Tread shapes are manufactured to properly finish brick steps and other paving applications.

 

 

Arches

 

 

Brick arches invoke a sense of tradition and strength and have become a standard element in many architectural styles. For structural integrity and appeal, arches should be constructed with brick shapes to properly span the opening. Glen-Gery offers a variety of standard arches which can be used as functional or decorative elements in a building design.
