Brick Wall Tests

Postby Mike Farley » Tue 06 Apr 2021, 08:31

Just came across this from Roger Cicala. Do pay attention to the date the article was published. ... hic-tests/

My favourite line?

"In the UK, standard bricks are 215 x 102.5 x 65mm. Surprisingly, there is no standardization in the EU, and each country has its own brick size. Germany, of course, has the largest bricks in the EU at 240 × 115 × 71, because, well, it’s Germany."

It is probably only a matter of time before the EU acts on this surprising omission in its regulatory quest. ;)
