Dear Kirshna
        The wall construction cement sand mortar ratio see below

Brick work according to cement mortar ratio

1. First class brick work in cement sand mortar 1:4

Brick walls constructed with cement sand mortar 1:4 ratio means 1 part of cement and 4 parts of sand.  This mortar is of high strength and is recommended for following construction works.

  • Multi storey buildings
  • Heavy weight /load bearing walls
  • In earth quake zones
  • Brick pillars
  • Where there is more vibration due to heavy traffic or factory.
  • Boundary wall, courtyard wall parapet wall and other free end walls
  • Partition or 4.5 inch thick walls
  • Brick works used for drainage

2. First Class Brick Work in cement sand mortar 1:6

Brick walls constructed with cement sand mortar 1:6 ratio means 1 part of cement and 6 parts of sand. This mortar is of medium strength and is recommended for following construction works.

  • Three storey buildings
  • Load bearing walls 
  • Heavy and frequent rainy zones
  • Foundation of multi storey buildings

3. First Class Brick Work 1:7

Brick walls constructed with cement sand mortar in the ratio of 1:7 means 1 part of cement and 7 parts of sand. This mortar is low in strength and is recommended for following works.

  • Toe walls
  • Single storey buildings
  • Temporary structures
  • Light weight walls having no load of beams etc.

Note: Mortar richer than 1:3 are not used in masonry because of high shrinkage and no appreciable gain in strength of masonry although mortar strength itself may increase.
