# Brick wall thickness – 1, 1 1/2, 2, 2 1/2 and 3 brick wall thickness

The thicknesses of brick wall may vary depending on the type and size of bricks used, as well as construction standards in different regions. In general, the nominal thickness for a load-bearing brick wall in mm is around 230-250mm, and in inches is around 9-10 inches and for a non-load bearing brick wall in mm is around 100-115mm and in inches is around 4-4.5 inches.

The thickness of a brick wall can vary depending on several factors. However, a standard brick wall typically has a thickness ranging from about 4 inches (100 mm) for a half brick or single laye or single skin brick wall to 9 inches (230 mm) for a one brick or two layer or double skin brick wall.

## Here’s is general guideline for thickness of 1/2, 1 1/2, 2, 2 1/2 and 3 brick wall

1. 1/2 (or half) brick wall thickness is typically around 4 inches (100 mm).
2. 1 (or single) brick wall thickness is typically around 9 inches (225 mm).
3. 1 1/2 (or one and half) brick wall thickness is typically around 14 inches (350 mm).
4. 2 (or double) brick wall thickness is typically around 18 inches (450 mm).
5. 2 1/2 (or two and half) brick wall thickness is typically around 22 inches (550 mm).
6. 3 (or three) brick wall thickness is typically around 27 inches (680 mm).

Typically, the standard thickness for a 1/2 or half brick wall in mm is about 100-115 mm, in inches is about 4-4.5 inches, in cm is about 10-11.5 cm, in meters is about 0.1-0.115 m and feet it is about 0.333-0.375 feet.

Usually, the standard thickness for a 1 or single brick wall in mm is about 225 mm, in inches is about 9 inches, in cm is about 22.5 cm, in meters is about 0.225 m and feet it is about 0.75 feet.

Usually, the standard thickness for a 1 1/ or one and half brick wall in mm is about 350 mm, in inches is about 14 inches, in cm is about 35 cm, in meters is about 0.35 m and feet it is about 1.166 feet.

Usually, the standard thickness for a 2 or double brick wall in mm is about 450 mm, in inches is about 18 inches, in cm is about 45 cm, in meters is about 0.45 m and feet it is about 1.5 feet.

Usually, the standard thickness for a 2 1/2 or two and half brick wall in mm is about 550 mm, in inches is about 22 inches, in cm is about 55 cm, in meters is about 0.55 m and feet it is about 1.833 feet.

Usually, the standard thickness for a 3 or triple brick wall in mm is about 680 mm, in inches is about 27 inches, in cm is about 68 cm, in meters is about 0.68 m and feet it is about 2.25 feet.

Typically the plastering thickness for brick walls can be 12 mm, 15 mm, or 20 mm respectively. A 12 mm thick cement plaster is used for plastering the plain face of brick masonry and 15 mm cement plaster thickness is done on the rough side of 13.5, 9, and 4.5 brick walls.

The thickness of a brick wall with plaster depends on several factors. However, a standard 4 inches interior brick wall with plaster typically has a thickness ranging from 5 to 6 inches (about 12.5 to 15 centimeters) and 9 inches exterior walls typically ranging from 10 to 11 inches (about 25 to 28 centimeters) to provide better insulation and structural support.

Conclusions:
In general, the standard thickness for a single brick wall is around 230-250mm (9-10 inches) and for a half brick wall is around 100-115mm (4-4.5 inches).
