Hanson Bricks Available from Greengates Builders Merchants Accrington, Lancashire

Hanson Bricks The Sustainable Choice available from Greengates Builders Merchants Accrington, Lancashire.


Bricks are an inherently sustainable building material.  They have a lifespan in excess of 150 years, require little to no maintenance, and can be recycled at the end of their use.  They also contribute to thermal mass, resulting in buildings which need less energy for heating and cooling.


Hanson is the first brick manufacturer to achieve BES 6001 Responsible Sourcing of Materials (RSM) certi­fica­tion for all products from it’s UK brick production sites.  This means that whatever brick you choose from Hanson, it is BES 6001 certified.


Hanson also offers the Ecostock brick range.  This range is manufactured at their  state of the art brick factory and combines locally sourced raw materials with low energy and low waste processes to make stock bricks with the lowest embodied CO2 available.
