Arriscraft, manufacturer of naturally-made products that emulate quarried stone, has introduced a much sought after elongated brick for the North American architectural community, which rivals the premium, long brick offered by European companies. Arriscraft is the stone products group of General Shale, the North American subsidiary of Wienerberger AG and a leading manufacturer of brick, one of the world’s oldest green building materials.
“The introduction of our extra-long Architectural Linear Series brick opens up new design opportunities for our architectural customers. This long, elegant brick features a distressed finish that is ideal for modern designs, with rustic appeal. We recognize that our customers have been looking for this type of long, weathered brick,” says Marta Zonneveld, Marketing Manager. “Today, we’re proud to offer this unique product here in North America – considering the high costs of importing brick from Europe.”
One customer, ODA Architecture, secured an early order of Architectural Linear Series brick and used the impressive stone on the 123 Melrose multi-residential building, in Brooklyn, NY, part of a large scale redevelopment of the former Rheingold Brewery site.

Architectural Linear Series brick is 2-⅜” high by 23-⅝” long (depth is standard at 3-¾”). Installing this one large size is simple and efficient. With the design community in mind, Arriscraft offers four gorgeous, standard colors: Charcoal, Midnight Grey, Obsidian, and Opal.
Arriscraft’s Natural Process technology uses only natural materials (plus color pigments) and replicates how stone is created in the earth. This patented process creates stone with the natural aesthetics and durability of quarried stone, plus the convenience of standard installation and unlimited supply.
Arriscraft manufactures a vast range of premium stone for commercial and residential projects, including full-bed Renaissance® Masonry Units and Building Stone, Thin-Clad adhered and clipped veneers, Adair® Limestone, and cast accessories. Designers can select from a truly comprehensive line of styles – from old-world to contemporary – in natural colors, with custom applications available.
