Our clay bricks walling system provides a faster, drier, safer and more sustainable building solution than traditional brickworks, it provides a solid walling material that delivers clear environmental and economic benefits. The heart of the system, and the secret of the speed and efficiency, is the precision-engineered in Porotherm clay blocks.
 
Porotherm is a large format, clay blocks can be used in load-bearing and non-load-bearing applications and are ideal for:

Porotherm walls...the best in the market: Why?

Walls made with Porotherm Smart Bricks provide the house owner with a lifetime opportunity of experiencing a comfortable and healthy living environment in all seasons. The perforated design of the brick ensures excellent thermal insulation that keeps indoor temperatures cool at all times. The best thing about the blocks is that they are entirely made of clay making Porotherm a Natural walling material, rated by the Green Building Council of India.

The large size of the blocks promotes savings in mortar consumption since one Porotherm 8" block is equivalent in area to 9 small bricks. Another spectacular feature of Porotherm is the precision in design. The blocks are highly dimensionally tolerant making Porotherm a one of a kind wall solution in the market. Also, Porotherm blocks are 60% light in weight than any other conventional walling blocks thus aiding in faster construction. Apart from all these, Porotherm blocks also have the lowest water absorption because of which possibility of superficial or shrinkage cracks on plaster is none...no wonder they are called POROTHERM SMART BRICKS!
