This permits horizontal mechanical connection between the facing and backup elements of a multi-wythe wall.
These units are typically selected for specific aesthetic criteria such as color, dimensional tolerances, uniformity, surface texture, and limits on the amount of cracks and defects. ASTM C216, Standard Specification for Facing Brick, covers Grades SW and MW, which correspond to the same physical and environmental requirements as those for building brick. Within each of these grades, face brick may be produced in three specific appearance types. Type FBS (Standard) is for general use. Type FBX (Select) is for use in exposed applications such as stack bond patterns where a high degree of mechanical perfection and minimum size variation are required.
