arch bricksThere is often a requirement for the bricklayer to lay loose voussoirs in refurbishment, renovation & sometimes extension projects by laying around a timber former.

Depending upon the face height & bond pattern of the arch, there are options to reduce the number of pieces the bricklayer has to lay.

The choices are:

  • you can have every piece of the arch loose
  • you can order the separate voussoir pieces bonded into one

Replacing site laying with factory fabrication would normally result in an improvement in the finished quality of the brickwork, and reducing the site trades would also reduce overall project costs.
