Our cement bricks are guaranteed a quality brick.

This is evident in the fact that it is one of the few bricks to carry a valid SABS mark.

Many competing manufacturers only test their bricks internally and foil the customer with a quality guarantee by stating that their bricks comply with SABS regulations.
We are proud to say that our bricks not only comply but we have a legitimate third party proving we sell a cement brick of the highest standard and quality. Our factory of choice, for which we are the defacto distributor, carries the SABS on all the bricks they produce.

Always ask for a valid SABS certificate that has not expired. Over the decades, our Cement Brick has been used extensively by the likes of major construction companies, retailers and the man in the street.
We have not once ever experienced a single incident of product failure.

It is important that the consumer knows what application the various types of bricks are intended for. In order to ensure that the brick performs to its highest standard one must use it in the correct application. For your information,

7MPA cement bricks are suitable for single story building applications, as well as boundary walls. 7MPA cement bricks should not be used in double storey applications. 7MPA cement bricks require 55x bricks for a single wall. For a double-leaf wall you double-up the figure to 110x bricks per m2.

10MPA cement bricks are suitable for single or double storey building applications. 10 MPA Cement Bricks are designed for load-bearing applications, typically for a building area that carries a slab. 10MPA cement bricks require 55x bricks for a single wall. For a double-leaf wall you double-up the figure to 110x bricks per m2.


Both 7MPA Cement Bricks & 10MPA Cement Bricks have a 5% breakage allowance due to the stresses when loading/ offloading and transporting the bricks. The breakage allowance also allows for handling as well as site-stacking (uneven surfaces). Half-bricks should not be wasted & can be used in many building applications, including foundations, wall corners, filling etc.

Brick size: 220mm x 100mm x 70mm
Average weight: Approx. 2.5kg

Compressive strength of a brick is measured in megapascals (MPA) and is measured by subjecting the brick to uniformly distributed pressure determining its nominal strength, which is the strength recorded just before the brick breaks.

Our cement bricks go through stringed testing criteria before they are made available to our customers. All our brick stacks (500x bricks per stack/ pallet) are marked 7/10 MPA.
