Rules to observe when building masonry walls

Before use, the blocks must be wetted. The walls must be built starting from a corner, laying the blocks on a mortar bed levelled to the desired thickness. The interlacing must be made staggering the vertical gaps at half a brick length or at least at 10 cm in the case of blocks; in depth, staggering must be done at half the length of the brick or of the block.

Low costs when using Brikston bricks

As early as the design stage you can calculate the exact quantity of bricks required, by using the specialised software on the Practical page, avoiding thus any material surplus.

When building with the se materials, working time is shorter (due to larger formats) and lees mortar is required per cubic meter of masonry. The quantities of rebar and concrete used can also be lower, due to the very high compressive strength of our products. Moreover, you can build without thermal insulation materials, due to the goods insulation qualities of the Brikston bricks.

The Brikston brick, stronger than the law requires!

A single Brikston brick could support the entire weight of your house!

Due to the quality of the raw materials they are made of, due to the manufacturing process and to the dedication of those making them, Brikston products are a model of strength and durability.

While Romanian seismic design rules require the compressive strength of masonry elements to be at least 7.5 N/mm2, the results of laboratory tests show that the Brikston vertical hollow blocks have an average strength of over 25 N/mm2.

The Brikston brick is beneficial to health

Construction materials have a strong impact on health and on the quality of life in any home. Pollution does not stop at the door! 45% of houses in Europe are considered damp and 40% of their inhabitants suffer as a result of this. Damp walls means a lack of comfort and an unpleasant aesthetic aspect. Besides, dampness encourages the proliferation of fungi (which cause allergies), of mites and other insects, and is known to exacerbate respiratory disorders (caused both by allergy and infection), especially in the case of children.

The Brikston brick provides safety in case of earthquakes

The safety of your family, the safety of your investment and the costs of construction, maintenance and use matter when you have to decide on the material to use when building a house. In time, you can change the colour of the walls, the rendering or the windows, but the walls themselves cannot be changed. You are protected against natural calamities (earthquakes or floods) or of accidents (fires). Your health will also be safe in a house built out of healthy materials.

Which Brikston brick should I choose?

Now it is easy to choose exactly the brick you need. Answer these two simple questions and you will find the optimum products for your project.

1. What sort of wall do I want to build?

An exterior wall, exposed to the elements and to the variations of climate, or an interior wall, that will stand in a relatively constant environment?

Frame structure vs. loadbearing masonry structure: strength elements

The major difference between the two structures is the strength element.


  • in frame structures, the strength elements are the pillars and the girders
  • in loadbearing masonry structures, the strength elements are the walls, while the tie-columns in the masonry have the role of absorbing some of the seismic force

You're building a house! Do you know how many bricks you need to buy and how much this will cost you?

How is the price of brick expressed more accurately? Per cubic meter of masonry or per cubic meter of brick?

The blueprints are ready, the architect has calculated how much material you need, and you shopping, in search of the best price.

Types of structures

Choosing the type of structure depends on:

  • the purpose of the building: this determines vertical and horizontal compartmenting, for optimum conditions of use and comfort;
  • the location of the building: this influences the type of foundation and the building's height;
  • the height of the building: this determines the type of structure (higher heights mean higher loads);
  • the materials used in construction;
  • the construction technology.
