Beyond the guarantee of solidity and durability that it offers, the brick opens many architectural possibilities, thanks to an infinite variety of layouts, finishes and aspects.
Any brick assembly requires an implementation that ensures the strength of the work. For both technical and aesthetic reasons, vertical joints are not superimposed on several rows. The staggered joint arrangement offers a better load distribution. Before choosing your equipment, recognize the different types of devices.
Boutisse, panneresse and mulot
A device is said in "endisse" when the smallest face of the brick is in facing a wall, and "panneresse" when one sees its longest face.
The half-brick, or "mulot", corresponds to a brick intersected in its length (25 x 5.8 x 5.5 cm). From these elements, multiple combinations are possible to build walls and siding.
Laying in load with offset of half a brick at each row (regular apparatus).
Laying a pair of dressings per seat, with an offset amount of a quarter of a brick.
Laying a row in a bunch and a rank in panneress with integration of a field mouse (English device).
Alternate installation of headers and stresses with integration of a field mouse (Flemish apparatus).
Laying a row of header on a row of stresses with mulot for offset joints (vertical device).
Alternate application of header and panneresses from one row to the other (crossed apparatus).
Laying a row of headers on a row of draperies with a header to form a diagonal.
Offset placement of rows consisting of panneresses and alternate alternating squares.
Other aesthetic equipment
Offset placement (1/2 mulot) of rows consisting of alternating squats and mice.
