The weight of a pallet of bricks varies depending on the pallet’s size, the type and quantity of bricks used. For instance, a pallet with a single layer of Lego bricks weighs substantially less than a pallet with a 4-foot-high stack of red clay bricks.
A brick with a face measurement of 7.625′′ x 2.25′′ has a surface area of around 17 square inches. A typical pallet is 40″ by 48″, giving it a surface area of 1,920 square inches. These measurements indicate that 113 bricks or thereabouts are required to completely cover the pallet. If each brick weighs 4.3 pounds, a single layer of bricks on a pallet of bricks weighs 486 pounds. The weight of the pallet itself is not taken into consideration in this case.
