What is the size of a standard brick?
By Australian Standards, the standard brick size is 76mm high x 230mm long x 110mm wide.
Modular bricks used in the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s measure 290mm long, 90mm high and 90mm wide
Tolerances of standard brick sizes
- Length: +/- 90mm over 20 bricks (ie 20 x 230mm = 4600mm therefore tolerance allowed is between 4510mm to 4690mm)
- Height: +/- 50mm over 20 bricks (ie 20 x 76mm = 1520mm therefore tolerance allowed is between 1470mm to 1570mm)
