Acoustic properties Good-quality brickwork is an effective barrier to airborne sound, provided that there are no voids through the mortar for the passage of sound. All masonry joints should be sealed and bricks laid with filled frogs to achieve the necessary mass per unit area and avoid air pathways. At the junction between a cavity blockwork separating wall and an external brick and blockwork wall, if the external cavity is not fully filled with thermal Unfired clay bricks Unfired clay bricks for internal non-load-bearing applications are produced from clays which would be less suitable for standard fired bricks.

A profiled edge on each brick overhangs the brick course below creating the tiled effect. The bricks are laid in 10 mm mortar which is cut back 15 mm from the front face, using only a 1 mm vertical joint so that the tiles appear to butt joint. A range of colours with smooth and sand-faced finishes is available with matching specials for corner returns. The brickwork must be completed in courses ahead of the blockwork to ensure that internal vertical joints are sealed. The tile-bricks are typically used for gable-ends on housing.
