BENEFITS OF CLAY PLASTER BRICKS

CLAY BRICKS REDUCE NOISE
Clay bricks are an ideal way of insulating buildings against noise. Their insulation capacity is well known in the building industry. The noise reduction achieved will be determined by whether the wall is a single wall or a double wall.

CLAY BRICKS HELP REGULATE INTERIOR TEMPERATURES AND DISPLAY EXCELLENT THERMAL INSULATION:
Clay bricks have a unique ability in as far as they contribute to keeping interiors cool in the summer months and warm in the winter months. The reasoning here is that clay bricks absorb and retain heat during the day which helps with keeping the building cool. In contrast during the evening this retained heat is slowly released and as a consequence maintains the interior temperature at a fairly comfortable level. The manner in which the clay bricks are constructed also aid significantly in their thermal capacity. For example solid or cavity walls offer superb protection against cold and heat.

CLAY BRICKS ARE FIRE RESISTANT:
Since clay bricks are fired at such high temperatures during the manufacturing process it basically renders them incombustible. Therefore a brick wall will aid in mitigating the spread of fire as well as be resistant to collapse when exposed to fire.

Clay stock bricks are available in two categories:

NFP – Non Facing Plastered
Clay bricks that are suitable for general building work which is then to be plastered
The NFP clay bricks that we sell are guaranteed to never test below 10MPA and on average test around 14MPA

NFX – Non Facing Extra
Bricks suitable for use, plastered or un-plastered, for general building work below damp-proof course or under damp conditions or below ground level, where durability, rather than aesthetics, is the criteria for selection
The NFX clay bricks that we sell are guaranteed to never test below 15MPA and on average test around 25MPA
