On our website Building Supplies Online we offer Engineering Bricks, from Red Engineering Bricks to Blue Engineering Bricks.

What are Engineering Bricks?

They differ from normal facing bricks, as Engineering Bricks are specifically made for structural and commercial applications, and are made to provide enhanced technical performance. Because of this, they are used for their physical characteristics and not necessarily their appearance. They have a high compressive strength and low water absorption rate, and they are classified by these properties into either Class A or Class B Engineering Bricks. We offer Class B Blue Engineering Bricks and Class A Red Engineering Bricks on our website. Our Blue Engineering Bricks (Class B) are less strong than Red Engineering Bricks (Class A) but much more common, however the Red Engineering Bricks (Class A) are much stronger than the Blue Engineering Bricks (Class B) which makes them less common. Examples of uses for Engineering Bricks are ground works, manholes, sewers and damp proof courses, although Engineering Bricks were traditionally used for civil engineering, but are suitable for use where there is a high level of strength and resistance to water or frost is needed, as they can withstand extreme weather conditions.

Choosing your Engineering Bricks

Typically Class A bricks are sold as Blue Engineering Bricks, however on our website, the Red Engineering Bricks are Class A. Similarly, Class B bricks tend to be sold as Red Engineering Bricks, but on our website we sell our Blue Engineering Bricks as Class B. The difference between Red Engineering Bricks and Blue Engineering Bricks, or Class A and Class B Engineering Bricks, is that Class A (our Red Engineering Bricks) have more compressive strength and less water absorption than Class B bricks (our Blue Engineering Bricks), so the use is rarer as they are even more specialised.
