Guide

1

Determine how thick the walls you plan to put the brick.Depending on the number of bricks, their thickness may be 120 mm (half-brick), 250 mm (brick), 380 mm (half-brick), 510 (two bricks), 640 mm (two and a half brick).In the middle zone is rational to build a house with walls in two or two and a half brick - that is, the thickness of 510 mm or 640 mm.

2

Calculate the perimeter of the walls that you plan to put, and their height.This is done using a tape measure when measuring the count with a small margin.

3

central area of the future construction of the walls.For this perimeter must b
e multiplied by the estimated height of the walls.Upon receipt of the total area of the walls in the same formula, calculate the area of each window, doorway.Add up all these figures and get a number that will not be occupied by masonry.

4

deducted from the total area of the wall area of the window and door openings and get a number for the area of masonry in square meters.

5

To determine the required number of bricks you need to calculate the number of bricks in accordance with their size.For masonry using single (length 250 mm, width 120 mm, height 65 mm), sesquioxides (250h120h88 mm) and double (250h120h138mm) bricks.Most often used for construction of houses single brick.

6

square meter of the wall, embedded in a half-brick, consists of 51 pieces.(for a single brick), 39 pcs.(bastard), 26 (double).To learn the necessary masonry of the building number of bricks, masonry area is multiplied by the figure necessary to you, depending on the size of bricks.

7

Once you know the number of bricks needed for masonry walls of half-brick, multiply this number by 2 (if the wall is planned in brick), 3 (for the walls in a half-brick), 4 -If the wall is in two bricks, etc.

Note

Do not forget that you need to be sure to buy a brick with a small margin in the case in the masonry will require additional bricks.
