How to measure your area


Pavers
Measure your area to be paved to determine quantity of pavers required. This area is simply calculated by Length (m) x Width (m) = area (m2) for basic square or rectangular spaces (m= metres). For odd shapes, break your area into sections.

1) 5m x 3m = 15m2 2) 4m x 2m = 8m2 3) 3m x 4m = 12m2 Total = 35m2

For triangular areas 1/2 x base (m) x height (m) = area (m2 ) e.g. 1/2 x 4m x 3m = 6m2

Allow up to 10% extra pavers for wastage such as cuts and breakages You can also measure your area using our on-line calculator. Go to www.boral.com.au/pavingcalc

Retaining Walls
Manual Retaining Wall Calculation

4m Total wall length Level top of wall 0.5m 0.3m Total wall height Area 1 Area 2 Ground level

Measure your area of the wall to determine the quantity of blocks required. This area is simply calculated by Length(m) x Height(m) = Area (m2 ) for basic square or rectangular spaces (where m = metres). Step 1: Measure the area of the retaining wall. To do this you will need: The length of the wall. The height at both ends of the wall. This area is simply calculated by length x height for basic square or rectangle spaces. For odd shapes break your area down into several sections. For triangular areas use half base x height to calculate your area. Step 2: Increase your total area by 10% to allow for cuts, part blocks & breakages.

Calculation for above diagram: Area 1 4.0m x 0.3m = 1.2m2 Area 2 4.0m x (0.5m/2) = 1.0m2 Total = 2.2m2

Note: Midland Brick takes no responsibility for quantities calculated.

Products on display are examples, variation will occur naturally within a production run and with each production run of products. Chipping and breakage. Some minor chipping and breakage can occur during the delivery, off loading and laying of all products. This should not exceed 5% of thecompleted product. It is recommended that this product be used for cuts and infills. Score Marks. Score or drag marks may occur during the face texturing and manufacturing process. The marks are evident on all similar textured or mexicut type brick lines as vertical lines. During the manufacturing process excessively deep and wide drag marks are removed, however minor drag marks are not. These minor drag marks are part of the product and do not detract from the overall appearance of the completed wall when laid. Cutting. When cutting products, please ensure that the product is fully wetted (soakedwith water), to reduce the chance of discolouration from cutting slurry entering the product surface. Similarly, ensure all slurry is washed from any cut product before laying. Ensure that no cutting slurry falls on thesurfaceof product already laid.

Mortar Mix Recommendations for Concrete Masonry


M3 Applications (as per AS3700) Subject to non-saline wetting and drying General Purpose 1 Cement : 1 Lime : 6 Sand or, 1 Cement : 5 Sand requires the use of methyl cellulose water thickener. M4 Applications (as per AS3700) Subject to saline wetting and drying Exposure 1 Cement : 0.5 Lime : 4.5 Sand or, 1 Cement : 4 Sand requires the use of methyl cellulose water thickener. Note: Please be aware that the sand used in mortar is sourced from different locations. This may result in a difference between the mortar colour of your new home and the mortar colour of product displayed at our selection centres. Please ensure you discuss this important factor with your builder. Two Storey Projects. For two storey projects Midland Brick can block stack face bricks on site, and later lift them onto the first floor slab if possible. It is recommended that all face bricks be delivered at the same time to ensure colour consistency between storeys. Charges apply. Brickwork by the Coast. To achieve maximum protection in coastal areas, a sealed joint (flush or rolled) with an approved damp proof course is recommended. To ensure the best possible performance of any brickwork in severe marine environments, exposure grade units are required. Please consult your Midland Brick sales office if more information is required. Damp Proof Course (DPC). It is imperative that adequate damp proof course is installed to protect the brickwork from excessive ground salts and moisture. Damp proofing in the external leaf of masonry, piers and in garden walls is important to ensure that the bricks maintain their appearance. The damp proof course must be installed correctly and above ground level to ensure it functions correctly.

Handmade Bricks and Pavers


To maintain the traditional character of Handmade bricks, they will vary in size and colour. When using Handmade bricks within 1km of the sea we strongly recommend that flushed or rolled joints be used. We invite you to personally select from our range of Handmade bricks at the Middle Swan Selection Centre and Yard, as each firing creates a very individual look. Our Sales Advisors will be pleased to help you select bricks for your project. Handmade bricks are manufactured to sizing class DW. Sizing. Product supplied is within the dimensional tolerances specified in Australia/New Zealand Standard AS/NZS 4455. For further information please contact Midland Brick. Sizes and number per square metre are nominal only and subject to variance due to installation technique, product colour and size variation through manufacturing processes. Please consult your Midland Brick Sales Advisor if mixing various colours into patterns. Colour Blending. For the best colour blending results, blend your bricks and pavers from various packs as you lay. Ask our Sales Advisors for more information or download the brochure online. Loose Loading. Load restraint laws restrict what and how we load loose product into vehicles. Please check with a Sales Advisor for further details. Trailer Weight Restrictions.

Important Information
Paving
Paver Face. Some pavers have subtle variation in colour and texture where either face can be used. The choice is yours. Paving Dimensions/Pattern Design. Dimensions quoted are nominal only. Actual manufactured size will vary between batch runs, product type and colour of paver. Please consult your Midland Brick Sales Advisor if mixing various colours into patterns. DIY. Allow 2-3mm between pavers for clean jointing sand to be swept in between pavers to ensure effective lock up. Paving Installation. In accordance with accepted engineering principles, Midland Brick recommends allowing 2-3mm joints between pavers for clean jointing sand to be swept in between pavers to ensure effective lock up and the use of a base course layer under all segmental pavements subjected to vehicular traffic. Please refer to Midland Brick technical literature for specific recommendations or contact Midland Brick. Crossovers and Driveways. In accordance with accepted engineering principles Midland Brick recommends the use of a subbase course layer under all clay segmental brick pavements subjected to vehicular traffic as referred to in Midland Bricks Crossover and Driveway document. When paving crossovers you should first contact your local shire to ensure you comply with their specifications. Visit www.midlandbrick.com.au Abrasive Objects. Minor edge chipping can occur when steel drum rollers, mowers or edgers pass over paving bricks. When moving the above machinery across pavers, insertion of a rubber strip or carpet between paver and machine will alleviate this chipping. Tyre Markings. Tyre markings may appear on any type of pavement surface due to tyre compounds, vehicle weight, direction and the action of power steering. Colour Fastness. All concrete pavers will fade over time when exposed to direct sunlight. To maintain and enhance the chosen colour, sealing the pavers is recommended. Contact sealer manufacturers for further information. Sealing. To protect the life of your finished project and to allow easy cleaning Midland Brick recommends that your paving be sealed, in particular paving in coastal areas or harsh environments. The application of a sealer will protect your investment and maintain the pavers appearance. Contact sealer manufacturers for further information. Salt Water Pools. Paving should be protected from salt water with a suitable sealer to a minimum width of 2m from the pool edge. For a suitable sealer please consult with a sealer manufacturer for expert advice. Sealers should be renewed periodically as recommended by the sealer manufacturer. When clay or masonry product is subjected to severe salt attack situations, some deterioration may occur over time. For Bullnose pavers we recommend sealing both sides of the paver prior to installation.

Cleaning
High Pressure Water Warning. The use of high pressure water cleaning is NOT recommended as it may damage the face of brickwork, clay and masonry paving, window frames and erode mortar joints. Acid Warning. Chemicals used to clean products are dangerous. Please ensure you adhere to all safety directions. Ensure that no acid based products are used on concrete, masonry or Stylestone products. Staining. Occasionally various types of stains, blemishes or efflorescence may become visible after the completion of the works. Typically this forms on the surface of porous building materials or coatings such as bricks, pavers, mortar and concrete. Efflorescence. A white deposit known as efflorescence may sometimes appear on any concrete or masonry product. Efflorescence appears due to the migration of salts via evaporation to the surfaces of the product. This is a temporary effect as the products acclimatise to their new environment. To remove efflorescence and other forms of staining please refer to our brick cleaning information sheet. Refer to www.midlandbrick.com.au for further information. Vanadium. On occasion yellow/green staining may appear on cream coloured clay bricks. This is known as vanadium staining. This staining is a natural by-product of clay products and is not harmful. The stain may appear following rain/water application or when exposed to an acidic environment. The stain will usually weather away, however for quicker removal please refer to our brick cleaning information sheet. Further Information. For more information, please refer to www.midlandbrick.com.au, brick cleaning information sheet, or you can discuss your requirements with your local Midland Brick Sales Advisor.
