What does it mean for you?
With N70, your external walls are thinner, which creates some extra living space or allows to increase the insulation for 3 cm, at your choice! This brick is lighter and easier to bring to the site. It also implies less energy costs for transportation, which makes it truly ecologic.

The N70 with its narrow shape asks for specific brickwork bonds that are not based on the modular ratio header/stretcher. The irregular bond and quarter brick bonds  are ideal for the N70, but the Dutch bond is also suitable.
