-It can withstand heat thus giving fire protection to the house or buildings -It has better sound performance where it able to block the sound from outside. -It also offers lower utility cost. Energy efficient homes its inherent mass qualities help keep a home cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter.
ADVANTAGES OF HOLLOW CONCRETE BLOCKS. Highly Durable: The good concrete compacted by high pressure and vibration gives substantial strength to the block. Proper curing increase compressive strength of the blocks. Low Maintenance, Color and brilliance of masonry withstands outdoor elements.
Brick and concrete block are the most common types of masonry in use in industrialized nations and may be either weight-bearing or a veneer. Concrete blocks, especially those with hollow cores, offer various possibilities in masonry construction. They generally provide great compressive strength, and are best suited to
Photo: Uwe Strasser Clay building materials are among the oldest building materials in the world and have remained highly popular to the present day. This is not surprising since clay building materials are natural, versatile, durable and stable in value. Those who choose clay blocks by Wienerberger play it safe and have
The video shows the best examples of clay brick construction in South Africa. It covers topics such as energy efficiency, thermal comfort, anti-lightweight w
Blockwork is construction with concrete or cement blocks that are larger than a standard clay or concrete brick. To make them lighter and easier to work with they have a hollow core that also improves their insulation capacity. They are available in a variety of densities to suit different applications. Their convenience and cost
② poor sound insulation, sound propagation to. clay due to its porosity is small, there is no sound isolation, sound decibel decrease is small, and other masonry materials such as now adopted more concrete aerated block its large porosity, noise effect is obvious. ③ environmental damage to large, due
CEBs are made from soil that is 15-40% non-expansive clay, 25-40% silt powder, and 40-70% sharp sand to small gravel content. The more modern machines do not require aggregate (rock) to make a strong soil block for most applications. Soil moisture content ranges from 4-12% by weight. Clay with a
Concrete block walls have served as the structural elements of large commercial and government buildings, including schools, office buildings and hospitals, for decades. These Concrete block walls provide excellent insulation, especially if the hollow blocks are filled with concrete after they are placed.
of bricks such as Common Burnt Clay Bricks, Sand Lime Bricks (Calcium Silicate Bricks), Concrete Bricks, Fly ash Clay Bricks, Fire Clay Bricks and the Hollow Brick, the latest technology in bricks segment. Porotherm HP (Horizontally Perforated) bricks are 60% less weighted than concrete solid block.

Clay is a natural building material that the Austrian brick manufacturer Wienerberger believes can create sustainable living spaces in modern forms. CEO Heimo When your load-bearing Porotherm clay hollow blocks have high thermal insulation properties, what more do your newer Thermo bricks offer?
5 Bricks Types:Clay, Sand Lime, Engineering, Concrete and Fly Ash Clay Bricks. Applications Common burnt clay bricks are used in general work with no special attractive appearances. When these There are bricks in the form of bullnose, channel, coping, cownose and hollow bricks to name a few.
