Hit & Miss
Hit & Miss bricks are a type of brick design that is characterized by a pattern of alternating rows. The design is called “hit and miss” because it appears that some of the bricks have been “hit” and knocked out of place or are “missing.” This design creates a pattern where the bricks are not fully aligned, with gaps between the bricks showing parts of the underlying wall.
Hit & Miss bricks are commonly used for decorative purposes, as this design pattern can give a building an aesthetically pleasing and diverse look. Often, they are made in softer colours which have a weathered look, as this helps the bricks blend in with the surrounding environment.
These bricks can be designed with irregular shapes and sizes that give a unique appearance to walls and structures.
Bricks are specially designed with only 2 perforations at each end, so a reinforcement bar can be applied while the rest of the brick is solid.
Naturally fire resistant.
