This brick was sized to reduce wall costs by reducing the number of brick in the wall. The look is more institutional – more bold. The lines are more vertical. There are only 4.5 brick per square foot. Like a 2.25 Modular, the unit is designed to turn corners and start a wall in running bond. 2 brick courses equals one brick laid in a soldier course (stacked vertically). This brick is easy to use when creating patterns in the wall.
