  • Plain or Rough Brick Arch

The Arch is built with uncut bricks having wedge-shaped joints between bricks. Such an arch is said to be rough because the wedge-shaped joints look ugly and the finished effect of arch is rough. Rough arches are not normally adopted for facing brickwork. The minimum thickness of joints should be 5mm and maximum 15 mm.

In gauged arch construction, cut bricks or molded bricks are used. Any good facing brick can be cut to a wedge shape on the building site. The gauged bricks have been accurately prepared to a wedge shape such that they can be put together to form an arch with very thin joints between them. The finished effect of accurately gauged red bricks with thin white joints between them is very attractive.
