The latest-trending colours in Clay Brick
In response to industry demand for a contemporary and sophisticated brick, we introduced the Atlantic Port Morien a few years ago. Atlantic Port Morien has a black coal appearance with a modern feel – a look that can easily be applied to both residential and commercial applications.
New light grey and white bricks added this year
New for this year, we are introducing two more neutral colour variations to the Atlantic Collection: a light grey we’ve named Cape Smokey; and a white brick, fittingly called White Point.
The Atlantic Collection from Shaw Brick is the embodiment of the latest clay brick colour trends, which are black bricks, all shades of grey, white and even deep reds. These clean, cool shades top the trends of all home price ranges – primarily whites with white mortar and all grays from light steel to charcoal.
Same brick texture as our Tapestry Collection
The Atlantic Collection features the same lightly-textured finish of the Tapestry Collection that lends a refined character and allows the colours to show their best.
