Recognised by their curved edges or rounded convex trim, bullnose bricks such as the double bullnose, single bullnose and bullnose header, are commonly used for feature brickwork that requires a radius (corner details, window or door reveals and pier work). This popular special shaped brick also works really well for capping or for edging kerbs, and is especially useful when it comes to creating a seamless visual transition between square and curved elements.
