Is Atlas™ brick stronger than concrete?

Atlas™ structural brick has a compressive strength of masonry f'm of 3000 psi or more depending on the color. The darker the color generally the stronger the brick. This value is compared to a typical design value of 1500 psi for Concrete block masonry. This means that a thinner brick wall can generally carry the same load as a thicker concrete block wall which saves building space and cost.
