Insulite Coursing Bricks

MEDIUM DENSE CONCRETE COURSING BRICKS

Insulite Coursing Bricks are coursing units designed to be used in conjunction with Thomas Armstrong’s Insulite Concrete blocks range, in order to maintain material continuity throughout the wall and reduce the need to cut down whole blocks. They are available in 100mm and 140mm thickness.

Produced to BS EN 771-3, these Lightweight Concrete Coursing Bricks can be used as infill around openings, doors, windows etc and can be used to adjust coursing heights of walls.
 
These Medium Density Bricks are available in ‘Standard’ finish texture only which provides an excellent surface for mortars, renders and plasters. All of these bricks are suitable for use above and below damp-proof course (DPC).

 

Insulite Coursing Bricks are manufactured to BS EN 771-3 and are ISO 9001 Quality Assured, ISO 14001 Environmentally Certified and hold BES 6001 ‘Excellent’.
