About Bricks

Indian Standards in Brickwork

  • Nominal Size of Brick (in inches) = 9 x 4.5 x 3
  • Number of bricks per cum of brickwork = 1/(0.230 x 0.115 x 0.075) = 504 bricks
  • Number of bricks per sqm of half-brick thick wall = 1/( 0.230 x 0.075) = 58 bricks 
  • Mortar required per cum of brickwork = 0.25 cum
Brick Types:
  • Normal Bricks
  • Fly-ash Bricks 
  • Cement Hollow Blocks ( 400mm x 200mm x 200mm) (These blocks are generally hollow, else they would be very heavy to lift)
