1. The dimensions noted above are a nominal or indicative size only. Australian bricks are manufactured to an Australian Standard DW2 and bricks of 1st quality rating are deemed to comply with this standard and are tested accordingly.
2. Sandstocks, Clinkers, Rockface and other bricks with deliberate deformities to shape are not deemed to have to comply with the size characteristics of Australian Standard DW2 therefore, size is not tested and will vary.
3. EMPIRE Ceramics Pty. Ltd. can only cut the bricks as supplied by the brick manufacturer. Although a standard cutting thickness ± 2mm is aimed for, many brick types do not allow for accuracy to this level. Please check the brick cutting characteristics prior to ordering if high accuracy is required.
4. Height and Length:
Australian Brick Companies make most of their bricks to the Australian Standard DW2, which is as follows:
Variation on length is +/- 50mm (measured over 20 Bricks)
This does NOT mean 2.5mm per brick! It MUST be measured over 20 bricks!
Variation on height is +/- 40mm (measured over 20 Bricks)
This does NOT mean 2.0mm per brick! It MUST be measured over 20 bricks
This variation could increase slightly for Sandstocks as they are not manufactured to be a perfectly square brick and are classified as a DW1. Their shape and sizing is a desirable characteristic of the product.
Variations in one batch or manufacturing run of bricks are, usually, far less than shown above. The above figures represent the Australian Standard; which all Australian Manufacturers must comply with Sandstocks, Recycled bricks, Clinkers and downgraded bricks do not need to comply with Australian Standards.
