The bar-format bricks

The  bar-format brick is an extruded form of perforated ceramic with and without perforation – a quality product that far exceeds the minimum requirements defined in DIN 20000-401 and EN 771-1 respectively.
As well as the numerous variants of color and surface finish of current manufactured products, it is above all the interplay of gaps between horizontal and butt joints that provides a broad range of design latitude. Variations with protruding and recessed layers help to give the brickwork something of a living quality. It does this by creating a type of slat or board structure with a fascinating interplay of light and shade.

Limitless color variety

bar format bricks

We can produce all ceramic products in your desired color and format. Here you will find bar-format bricks in a large number of color variants.

For facades, we only manufacture on a project-specific basis, and we consult with you about your desired color until we have achieved a perfect match with your wishes. Let yourself be inspired by our color overview and discover a selection of colors produced previously. Simply order a sample of your favorites or download our textures for renderings.

The optimum structural properties of brick facades are a perfect match with modern economic and ecological requirements. The bar-format brick by GIMA has proven itself to be an ideal construction material for facades: It is frost-resistant, resistant to acids and alkalis, non-fading, resistant to light and it also does not show signs of age. Instead, a patina forms on its surface and, as time goes by, it becomes increasingly attractive. Obtain a better insight into the subject of brick facades. What exactly happens in the firing process? What can be done to influence the color shades that bricks adopt? And how can GIMA assist me with project planning?
