Modular bricks have a size of 190x90x90 mm. Thus, a brick wall constructed with this type of brick would conserve precious space when built and produce a lighter wall. The lighter wall will provide economy in foundation design. For every 300mm of wall height with modular bricks only three courses of mortar are used compared to four courses of mortar in the conventional fps brick. Thus, there is saving in mortar. Contrary to the accepted thinking that it involves less consumption of clay and coal, it has been recorded by manufacturers that these bricks require twice the normal level of fuel for firing evenly due to their bulk. For the purpose of this analysis, modular brick walls have been considered to have an exposed external face with pointing and 15mm thick plaster on the internal face.
