specification guide for liberty thin brick

General Description

clé’s Liberty Collection offers an array of deep, glamorous colors inspired by early nineteenth-century, urban New York. Drawing on the modern feel of this era of industrialization and urbanization, this hard-working thin glazed brick is a standard, modular-masonry brick size, a size preferred by architects for its ease of use and brick patterning. The liberty color palette includes matte black, deep shimmering blues, a rich moody green and reflective finishes such as gold and steel. Each coat of glaze reveals the texture of the brick giving it both glamor and heft. The liberty collection is ideal for a multitude of applications looking for a statement, including kitchen backsplash, shower, fireplace surround, feature wall, powder room, entry hall, and more.

Note: interior/exterior specification - not recommended for floors (including shower floors).  OK for freeze/thaw.
