Safety brick / Brick

Safety brick

In our daily life, we can see most of the brick driveways were built of orderly staggered form. But after a long-term stress of heavy traffic, it can easily cause the brick ridges, depressions, fractures, deformation and other issues, resulting road occupant in danger.

Thus, we change the shape of the conventional brick into parallelogram in order to create "directivity" of the brick, averaging the amount of dispersion under heavy traffic pressure. This new shape of brick can not only have more stable fit to the ground, but also reduce any danger of deformation.
