73mm bricks


Postby matchdayblue » Tue Jun 02, 2009 12:07 pm

What is the best way of tying in an external brick facing of a 250mm cavity wall when using 73mm facing brick. The internal skin is 215mm high concrete block so using a 73mm high brick with a 10mm bed joint obviously the coursings do not line through. There is also the problem in that the partial fill cavity slabs will line up with and are tied in with the blockwork coursing.?
