How do you know if an engineer is brick?

Engineering Bricks have a smooth finish with perforations through the top to the bottom. They are widely available in blue or red and are identifiable by their uniform shape.

Are engineering bricks frost resistant?

Made from selected dense aggregates and a choice of cements, the bricks, which exhibit low porosity and high dimensional accuracy, are completely frost resistant and suitable for use below ground where natural sulphates, up to and exceeding Class 3 levels*, are present.

What is the difference between Engineering bricks and facing bricks?

In contrast with facing bricks, Engineering bricks do not have any requirement for colour or texture. Engineering bricks are traditionally used in civil engineering work.

Are Engineering bricks solid?

This smooth brick is precise, square edged and solid, all while meeting the defined limits necessary for water absorption and compressive strength.

How can you tell an engineering brick?

What types of bricks do we have?

We have an impressive range from Class B Engineering Bricks and red bricks to concrete bricks, we’ve got them all. In an array of colours and styles, all our bricks are high quality and suitable for a variety of build types.
