Installing the Closure Block. The last block to be installed in every course is called the closure block. When you install the closure block butter all edges of the opening in the wall and all four vertical edges of the closure block with mortar. Carefully lower the block into place. If any mortar falls out and leaves an opening in the joint, remove the block and repeat the procedures (Figure 2-18). Figure 2-18. Installing the closure block 2-20 EN5157 PART H - TOOLING THE JOINTS Proper tooling of mortar joints helps produce a weathertight, neat, and durable concrete-block wall.

A course made up entirely of stretchers is called a stretcher course; a course formed entirely of headers is a header course. The different types of bonds are listed below: • Running Bond. This is the simplest bond. It consists entirely of stretchers. • Common or American Bond. A common or American bond is a variation of a running bond with a full course of headers at regular intervals. • Flemish Bond. In a Flemish bond, each course of bricks is made up of alternate stretchers and headers. The headers in alternate courses are centered over the stretchers in the intervening courses.

The uniformity of the bricks. • The method of laying the bricks. The strength of mortar is normally greater than that of the brick. The strongest element of a brick wall is mortar. Therefore, the way in which you lay bricks in mortar is very important. 3-4. Using a Trowel. To spread mortar for a bed joint, hold the trowel directly over the centerline of the previous course, tilt the trowel slightly, and drop an equal amount of mortar on four or five bricks along the wall unit (Figure 3-3). Do not make the row too long or the mortar will dry out.
