Wall beams, a key element within the structural bricks range, notably load bearing bricks, are an architect's best friend. These beams are a versatile design and structural feature, commonly utilised in facing or back-up masonry. They can function as standalone structures or be integrated into existing masonry. If necessary, the beams can be crafted with movable reinforcement. Importantly, the finished beam, enhanced by the strength of load bearing bricks, is always load bearing, ensuring robust structural support.
The Crossbars, or masonary on which the structural brick beams lay, must be placed in the first layer on both sides of at least ¾ of the bricks; at the ends, they must be placed on at least ½ of the brick.
Because we like to keep our buildings safe our bricks are always load bearing and the sizing and static calculations are included in the price.
