Arches And Bullseyes

This is a prefabricated flat arch, cut from brick slips and mounted on a backing block ready to bed onto a lintel. It has a 215mm rise, and an unbonded face with open joints for pointing up on site.

To cut these voussoirs we had to increase the length of the standard bricks, but skilfully done you could hardly notice the join and our customer was delighted! A rise of 215mm with a bonded face would be another option, and wide spans are supplied in sections.

Bullseyes with a wider and/or bonded face are another option.
