Natural Variation

PGH bricks are made from natural clays, fired at extreme temperatures creating products of enduring colour and character. The natural variation in both clay and firing process means textures, composition, size and colour including the appearance of flashing, will vary from batch to batch. Often the character created by this variability is the very reason bricks are desirable.

Blending and Cleaning

BLENDING

It is essential that all bricks be carefully blended from at least three or four different packs at the time of laying to provide a consistent colour and texture. Your bricklayer is responsible for ensuring an even colour distribution.

 

BRICK CLEANING

Brick cleaning is a specialist trade and should only be undertaken by an accredited brick cleaner. The chemicals and high water pressures used can easily damage the product, if not done correctly. Different brick textures and colours often have different cleaning considerations. Dry brushing the bricks periodically to remove residual mortar is an effective way to reduce the amount of effort required to clean bricks. Bricks should be cleaned within 2 to 14 days fo laying.

Brick Durability

SALT ATTACK RESISTANCE

Bricks are commonly classified into two categories for Salt Attack Resistance:

1. Exposure Grade (EXP) - the product is suitable for a severe marine or saline environment. Exposure Grade bricks are less susceptible to salt attack. A sever marine environment is defined as: up to 1km from a surf coast or up to 100m from a non-surf coast.

2. General Purpose (GP) - the product is suitable for general environmental conditions. These bricks should not be directly exposed to saline environments.

 

SOLAR ABSORPTANCE RATING (BASIX RATING)

When designing energy efficient buildings, the architects and consulting engineers need to be able to calculate the heat loss or gain of materials used to construct the buildings. This is why building materials are categorised into 3 categories: Light (L), Medium (M) and Dark (D). Light coloured being a low solar absorptance and Dark coloured being a higher solar absorptance.
