Spot the Difference – A Guide to CEN European Standards for Clay Bricks and Pavers


This is a useful document for specifiers as it outlines in clear terms the impact on clay bricks and pavers of the new CEN European standards. These will eventually replace the existing British Standard Specifications for clay masonry units. Though the changes will affect the way in which bricks are technically defined, they will not change the trade in or uses to which bricks can be put. Of particular use and an excellent reference is the section outlining what is happening and when.
