Windows & Doors - Brick Dimensions

While brick walls all over Australia are made with the same sized bricks, using the same construction methods, the height and width of windows and doors vary between most manufacturers. How can this be?

Well most companies will make windows at a size that is convenient for them to get efficient use of materials and equipment.

But at Stegbar our customers are what are most important, and so our latest innovation has been to create a standard size for our windows and doors that will make them fit perfectly into brick walls.

Using a standard metric brick and accepted industry practice of 10mm mortar gaps, all Stegbar windows and doors will fit perfectly into whole and half brick openings for width, and whole bricks for height.
