How many bricks in 1 square meter?
The number of bricks in 1 square meter depends on the size of the brick and the spacing used in the masonry. Assuming a standard brick size of 190 mm x 90 mm x 90 mm (length x width x height) with a 10 mm mortar joint, the number of bricks required to cover 1 square meter of wall area would be:
Horizontal spacing (mortar joint included) = 200 mm Vertical spacing (mortar joint included) = 100 mm
So, the number of bricks required to cover 1 square meter of wall area would be:
(1000 mm / 200 mm) x (1000 mm / 100 mm) = 50 x 10 = 500 bricks
Therefore, 500 bricks would be required to cover an area of 1 square meter with a standard brick size of 190 mm x 90 mm x 90 mm and 10 mm mortar joint. However, it’s important to note that this is just an estimate, and the actual number of bricks required may vary depending on the specific design, spacing, and construction methods used.
