About engineering bricks 

Bricks are produced by using a combination of clay, water, sand, calcium silicate and shale, and are ideal for projects involving walls and curves based on an unusual framework. Compared to regular bricks which shouldn’t be used below ground level, engineering bricks are a lot stronger and have low water absorption, frost and moisture, making them a popular choice for buildings that stand in wet and colder environments.

There are two types of engineering brick: Class A and Class B. The higher Class A offers superior water resistance and compressive strength, with blue engineering bricks offering less than 4.5% of water absorption and up to 125/Nmm2 (mm²) of power. Class B red engineering bricks are produced on a larger scale and commonly used on construction sites. Compression rates tend to be over 75N/mm2 (mm²), with water absorption rating usually below 7%.  

This is why engineering bricks are more of a technical choice than an aesthetic one, ensuring more protection for the building in the long-term. They help to enhance structural performance and utility practises, and are the go-to option for builds that face a greater threat of water damage that could compromise the integrity of the structure.
