Load bearing walls upto two storeys can be constructed with fps bricks to develop a wall 190mm thick. Parallel courses of brick are laid on their face as well as edge for a height of 230 mm. This forms one course in this case as far as breaking of joints or perpends within the wall is concerned. Corners and junctions are constructed to break the joint. The allowable basic stress for this wall is reduced to 85% on account of the reduced wall section. This system ensures saving on the material component. However, it is reported that there is no saving in the labour component as compared to the conventional brick wall. Both faces of the wall being smooth, the plaster thickness can be limited to 12mm on both faces.
