Should expansion joints be placed?

Since Lowie Bricks comply with the concrete brick standard in terms of expansion and contraction, an expansion joint is required every 6 metres. For clay bricks, an expansion joint is only required every 12 metres.

A expansion joint or dilatation joint is an open joint that accommodates the expansion and contraction of the bricks.

When in doubt, you can always request dilatation advice after ordering.
