For stoves in homes, professionals recommend the use of a special stove brick. Its identical standard size and correct geometry will allow you to build an oven with optimal dimensions, which will last for many years. There are several types of products presented below.
For stoves and fireplaces in residential buildings and country houses, quartz and fireclay red bricks are usually used. The second option is more often chosen, because quartz, heating up significantly, can lose its integrity and cause destruction of the walls.
The furnace in the room performs the functions of a heating device, and is the subject of decor. Her forms and design are sometimes very original and bizarre. For the possibility of laying a variety of stoves, sometimes a non-standard look, bricks are also available in a variety of shapes and sizes.
Standard brick sizes for the furnace
A standard brick is a box. All parameters of building materials are determined by GOST. Specifically, there is no separate document for the furnace version. Products of various sizes are produced.
