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 .
Here you can see an overview of commonly used formats for NF & DF bricks, and the corresponding weight and approximate quantity required per square metre.
