Utility Bricks

 

A selection of utility bricks designed for all types of construction offering a solution to a variety of design and build applications:-

 

Dense Concrete Common Bricks

 

Edenhall’s Dense Common Bricks are designed to be used for all types of construction above and below dpc level, independently or in conjunction with dense aggregate blocks.

65mm froggedThe aggregates used in the manufacturing process provide density, strength and thermal conductivity values, which are compatible with the majority of dense concrete blocks.


In addition to their ability to withstand repeated cycles of attack from rain and frost, good quality dense concrete bricks age harden, and throughout independently controlled laboratory experiments, the bricks passed the most rigorous freeze-thaw tests designed to establish the durability classification for masonry.

The bricks, which may be solid or frogged, are manufactured and tested in accordance with BS EN 771-3: 2011; Specification for Masonry Units: Aggregate Concrete Masonry Units.65mm grey common

As stated in this Standard they can be defined as: Common masonry units normally intended for use with no faces left visible.

Dense and Lightweight Coursing Bricks

 

Edenhall’s coursing bricks are designed to be used in all types of construction in conjunction with dense aggregate or lightweight aggregate blocks, both of which are available in standard bed widths of 100mm and 140mm.  “They are also available as 40mm high slips for use in building up courses in beam and block floors”.

140 dense commonThe 140mm width units are particularly suitable for use in the inner leaf of three storey buildings and party walls (Ref, Parts A and E of the Building Regulations) in addition to the requirements of BS 8103, ‘Structural Design of Low Rise Buildings’.

For lightweight bricks the specially selected aggregates used in the manufacturing process provide density, strength and thermal conductivity values which are comparable with the majority of lightweight aggregate blocks with a density range of 1000 - 1500kg/m3 .*

Good quality coursing bricks age harden and dense coursing bricks, with an average compressive strength of 22N/mm2, will resist freeze-thaw cycles. Lightweight bricks should only be used on inner leafs and should be protected from prolonged frost or snow.

The bricks, which are solid, are manufactured and tested100mm lightweight in accordance with BS EN 771-3: 2011 - ‘Specification for Masonry Units:

Aggregate Concrete Masonry Units’.

Engineering Quality Concrete Bricks

 

Edenhall’s Engineering Quality concrete bricks (EQs) are durable, high strength solid bricks, specially manufactured to cope with exposure to aggressive conditions.

EQ 65mmMade from selected dense aggregates and sulphate resisting cement, 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 including Class 3 levels, are present.

Solid EQs are manufactured and tested in accordance with BS EN 771-3: 2011; Specification for Masonry Units: Aggregate Concrete Masonry Units and meet the criteria for strength, durability and sulphate resistance as detailed in BS 5628 Pt 3: 2005 and other mandatory Standards. They can perform in a similar function to a Clay Class B brick.

Edenhalls Engineering Quality bricks are approved by the NHBC, Water Authorities and Transport & Highways Agencies.
