Online calculator for the calculation of facing and ordinary bricks

Select the brick sizes. If the required dimensions are not in the list, you can enter your own dimensions.
The units of measurement are millimeters.
Size (Length*Width*Height) or type of brick
mm single brick
The perimeter of the building is the sum of the length of all the walls required for calculation. The example shows a perimeter of 30 meters, for a house of 7 * 8 meters (7+7+8+8=30).
Units of measurement are meters.
Total length of all walls (perimeter)
If the height of the walls is different, you must specify the average height (the sum of the height of all walls divided by the number of walls). For example, if the height of two walls is 350 centimeters, and the other two are 250 centimeters each, you must specify 300 centimeters ((350+250)/2=300).
The units of measurement are centimeters.
The height of the walls
The thickness of the walls is indicated without taking into account the insulation and cladding materials, and most often depends on the height of the building, the necessary heat-saving characteristics and the strength of the bricks themselves.
Half brick = width of brick,
1 = length of brick,
1.5 = width+length of brick,
2 = two lengths of brick.
Wall thickness
Wall thickness
The thickness of the mortar in the masonry depends on the type of brickwork, as well as on the geometry of the material - the smoother the geometric dimensions of the brick, the smaller the thickness of the mortar layer.
The units of measurement are millimeters.

Information on the purpose of the calculator

The brick online calculator is designed to calculate the amount of building and facing bricks for a house and a basement, as well as related parameters and materials, such as the amount of masonry mortar, masonry mesh and flexible ties. Also, the calculations can take into account the dimensions of the pediments, window and door openings of the required number and size.

Brick has long been the most popular, common and familiar building material for the construction of long-term and reliable structures. This situation persists for a number of reasons, despite the emergence of new, modern and cheaper building materials. There are several most common types of bricks for any construction needs:

Ceramic brick (clay) for its intended purpose is divided into facade, ordinary and clinker. Ordinary brick (zabutovochny) may not have an ideal geometry and in most cases is used for laying rough walls of houses, plinths, garages, which are further plastered, painted and protected by facing materials and coatings. Its color has various shades of red.

Facing (facade) is used for the construction of walls without any additional finishing them in the future. There are also various special types of facade bricks that can withstand high mechanical loads and adverse weather conditions, and are usually used for paving paths., construction of all kinds of retaining fences, stairs, walls.

Clinker has an ideal smooth surface, various shades of red and black colors and has a high density.

Silicate is a lime-silicon artificial stone of light color. Silicate brick differs from ceramic brick in that it is not fired during the manufacturing process. It is quite hygroscopic, and accordingly is not used for the construction of facilities that will be operated in humid environments, such as basement and basements.

Also, silicate bricks are not used in the construction of furnaces, pipes, chimneys and foundations, as they are weak enough to withstand external destructive loads.

Refractory is divided into several types and is used for the construction of structures subject to high temperatures, such as stoves, fireplaces, chimneys and foundries. The most common is fireclay brick, has a yellowish tint, made of special refractory clay (chamotte) and, unlike ordinary clay, can easily tolerate high temperatures (up to 1400 gr.), as well as numerous heating and cooling cycles without loss of strength.

Bricks can be full-bodied (the volume of voids is not more than 25%), hollow and porous-hollow. It is believed that recesses and voids in the material not only reduce the weight, but also significantly increase the overall strength of the masonry by increasing the contact area between the brick and the masonry mortar.

The most common standard brick size: 250 - 120 - 65 mm (length - width - height), the so-called first "normal form" (1NF).

When calculating the number of bricks needed for work, a rule called "format" is usually used, in which the dimensions of the bricks are increased by 10 mm (this is the standard thickness of the seam), that is, it turns out: 260x130x75 mm.

General information on the results of calculations

In order to calculate the material for the partitions, it is necessary to start a new calculation and specify only the length of all partitions, the thickness of the walls in half a brick, as well as other necessary parameters.
