The NF bricks

Bricks in what is known as Normal Format (NF) always have dimensions of 240 x 115 x 71 mm, or in Thin Format (DF) 240 x 115 x 52 mm. As a standard-compliant brick construction material in acc. with DIN EN 771-1 respectively, the values of which GIMA bricks invariably outperforms, all of our ceramic products are totally frost-resistant and free of harmful or bloom-capable substances.

We produce full bricks (KMz) with a brick density of at least 1.8 kg/dm³ and a perforation of less than or equal to 15% as well as perforated bricks (KHLz) with a perforation greater than or equal to 15% with a brick density of 1.6 or 1.8 kg/dm³ .

Limitless color variety

NF & DF bricks

We can produce all ceramic products in your desired color and format. Here you can see a small selection of NF bricks in their various color variants.

For facades, we only manufacture on a project-specific basis, and we consult with you about your desired color until we have achieved a perfect match with your wishes. Let yourself be inspired by our color overview and discover a selection of colors produced previously. Simply order a sample of your favorites or download our textures for renderings.

The optimum structural properties of brick facades are a perfect match with modern economic and ecological requirements. The GIMA NF brick has proven itself to be an ideal construction material for facades: It is frost-resistant, resistant to acids and alkalis, non-fading, resistant to light and it also does not show signs of age. Instead, a patina forms on its surface and, as time goes by, it becomes increasingly attractive. Obtain a better insight into the subject of brick facades. What exactly happens in the firing process? What can be done to influence the color shades that bricks adopt? And how can GIMA assist me with project planning? Discover condensed expertise: through the planning process, the manufacturing process and our service concept.
