Search: standard brick weight
Why: A ton of bricks weighs the same as a ton of feathers.
Answer: There is no standard weight! A brick's weight and shape is designed to accommodate what a bricklayer can easily and repeatedly lift with one hand - 12 lbs at most, though most bricks are 5-6 lbs or maybe 9 lbs. Within the weight limit, depth is also limited by the properties of the clay.
The More You Know: Bricks are usually sold in “cubes” of 500 bricks. One cube weighs about a ton.
