Here is a site Karine, that should be of great help to you although it is not bilingual it is a wonderful place for masonry terminology.


Barrettes could be then translated as broach (?) or brick, which it gives the standard measures as (in inches) 4 x 3,2 x 8 and goes on to describe ALL the sorts of bricks... here, yours could be probably be referred to as a machine worked "gauged" brick...

I also found the following: BUSHHAMMER FINISH. A stone surface dressed with a bushhammer. Used decoratively or to provide a roughened traction surface for treads, floors, pavements.

This could very well be an answer to your previous query. In any case check out the site, I am sure you will be delighted with the help it affords you! Happy translating, lots of luck to you!
