    Boral Bricks

    Why Bricks?When it comes to walls, todays natural clay brick is unrivalled in performance, looks and long-term value.

    Strong and Safe

    Bricks wont twist or warp, rot or decay, erode or dent.

    natural character

    made from clay and shale, no two bricks are identical giving each home its own distinct personality.

    temperature control

    Brick homes even out temperature fluctuations because of their mass. homes made from brick are slow to warm up in summer and slow to loose heat in winter.

    acouStic performance

    the density of brick makes for a quiet home, with reduced external sound such as aircraft and road noise, compared to lighter weight materials.

    fire reSiStance

    Boral bricks meet the requirements of all six categories of the Bushfire hazard building standard, aS 3959-2009, including the highest category Bal-FZ, as all bricks are greater than 90mm thick.

    loW maintenance

    Bricks have negligible routine maintenance. this is an important factor to consider when looking at the whole-of- life cost of your home.

  • Diagram: think Brick australia

    an energy-wise home or building will use the best combination of sustainable building considerations such as site orientation, wall and ceiling insulation, ventilation and materials to reduce energy consumption and in turn greenhouse gasemissions.

    its all about taking a long-term view on our impact on the environment. From the initial sourcing and manufacture of materials to the need for ongoing maintenance and temperature control, its the efficient use of energy over the lifespan of a building that counts.

    together with good design principles, bricks can help you take advantage of the weather when its hot or cold. When around 38 per cent of energy use in australian homes is directed toward artificial heating and cooling*, this is serious long-term value.


    Home Energy Use, Baseline Energy Estimates 2008

    never before have new homes been built so responsively to our landscape, climate and lifestyles.

    Energy efficient design there are four factors crucial to the energy performance of your home:

    orientationSite orientation or the position of a building relative to the sun provides the opportunity to take advantage of the naturally available energy. With northerly living areas the use of extended eaves will block the higher summer sun while allowing the low winter sun to enter your home.

    inSulationCeiling insulation acts as a barrier to heat flow and is essential to providing year-round comfort. in regards to walls, this is where high thermal mass double brick cavity wall construction comes to the fore.

    VentilationCross-ventilation, with openings on both sides of a home, is the best way of cooling naturally. Fresh breezes will circulate better in open plan living spaces however internal walls are still required for their thermal mass, helping moderate temperatures. Vents should also be installed in the roof space to help regulate air flow year-round.

    thermal maSSmaterials with high thermal mass, or ability to absorb and store heat energy, are important in most australian climates where there is a need to average out temperature extremes. the density of clay bricks effectively delays the flow of heat through a wall by as much as 8 to 10 hours, producing a warmer house in winter and a cooler house in summer.

    tiP Conserve energy over the long term by using a strong, long-lasting and non-toxic material.

    How to Choose Bricksstep 1: styleresearch and explore ideas to try and establish the type of house youd like to build. examples of house styles include Contemporary, traditional, Beach, Georgian and homestead. the type of house style and design will greatly influence the type of brick chosen.

    step 2: Locationthe location of your property and the conditions it is subject to will determine your need for exposure grade bricks and mortar joints.

    exposure grade bricks are made to withstand severe coastal conditions, including homes subject to air borne salt spray. these bricks have enhanced durability ideal if your home is located up to 1 kilometre from a surf coast or 100 metres from a non-surf coast, on land with high saline soil, or is near a polluted atmosphere (such as an industrial site).

    General purpose (Gp) grade bricks are suited to all other external wall applications.

    step 3: colour & texturethe colours and textures now available in brick provide myriad opportunities to be creative.

    look at the big picture and think about roof colour, the guttering and fascia finish of your home, along with doors and window frames. But keep it simple on the colour front by limiting your selections to one or two trim colours. Focus instead on textural detail and decorative effects to create a point of difference.

    texture is a key feature in house design, and is easily achieved through a balance of finishes and surfaces that contrast and complement.

    eXampleS oF teXtureS:

    tiP Look for the symbol that identifies Boral bricks as exposure grade.

    smooth bricks have a consistent texture and almost ceramic appearance with straight edges.

    velour bricks have a tightly grained texture and straight edges

    torn face bricks have a dragged or ripped appearance across the face which gives them a weathered look.

    step 4: sizeDifferent brick sizes are available and can be used for the whole house, patterns, window sills, internal features, facades, formal areas, fireplaces and architectural details.

    the standard brick size is 76mm high x 230mm long x 110mm wide but some colours are available in a slimmer 50mm high size or a larger 162mm high.

    step 5: MortarYou may be surprised to know that the mortar joint and colour can considerably alter the appearance of your bricks.

    Your mortar can help achieve either a relaxed light feel or a dramatic contrasting effect. For example, a cream mortar with light coloured bricks to achieve harmony or bright white mortar in contrast to darker bricks for a more distinct look.

    Common mortar ColourS:

    the mortar joint refers to how the band of mortar between the bricks is finished.

    raked joints are most commonly known however rolled or ironed joints complement nearly all brick and house styles. Flush joints provide a flatter look by minimising shadow.

    tiP Wherever exposure grade bricks are used, finish with an Ironed or Rolled mortar joint to minimise erosion from salt.

    rolled bricks are treated with distinctive patterns prior to firing, producing a variety of textures.

    tumbled bricks have a rough texture and uneven edges which give them a rustic look.

    Fritted bricks have a glass-like substance melted into the surface for a glossy or mottled appearance.
