Building multi storey structures requires high quality bricks. Load bearing bricks are the best bricks for building structures intended for that purpose.
These bricks can completely support the entire structure load including slabs. However on some structures engineers prefer adding reinforcement steel columns to help sustain the structure load. Load bearing bricks are well hardened and stable to withstand external forces such as wind and earthquake. As compared to other light modern materials, they stand dominant.
Load bearing Usability
Load bearings are useful in almost anything masonry related. When building in swampy and wet locations they can be very useful and risk free. Rather than using other cheap materials where the cost differences are not much different, load bearing bricks are fairly costly and you don’t necessarily need to compromise on quality
Using them on durawalls and driveway would be ideal as they don’t break easily.
Vanishing and polishing methods of brick maintenance work very well with load bearings
Maybe you do not need to vanish, plastering is another good option.
Brickwork – pitsand, cement, brickforce, dpc and water
Paving – quarry dust or washed riversand, black sheeting and cement
If you are not sure about the quantities you need on your structure, you can provide your house plan for a proper bill of quantities
