Selecting the Right Walling Material

Getting the most of your walls through a wise selection of building materials

Clay is one of the oldest and the most traditional construction materials used and trusted by most of the people.  Whether you’re building a new home or a commercial building or just renovating an old – clay can be used almost anywhere – from the ground to the walls. Clay offers several benefits which no other construction materials can offer. These are:

●        One of the most abundant natural materials available on earth

●        Proven for centuries – research has found that clay bricks were being used as an important construction material in history as well

●        Requires zero maintenance

●        A perfect recycle material – can be reused again and again

●        Sustainable building material

●        Exceptionally durable

●        Aesthetically pleasing

When needed to choose the material for exterior or interior wall materials – Clay Bricks are the most recommended options out of all. Intelligent selection of the walling material can considerably improve the overall functionality of the walls that would benefit the inhabitants for a lifetime.

Choosing a clay-based walling material like hollow clay blocks can lend a whole new dimension to your otherwise ordinary walls. Historically, factors such as durability as a structural and aesthetic walling element, longevity, colorfastness, and maintenance-free qualities have been used to describe the superior sustainability attributes of Clay bricks and blocks.


Lifespan Of More Than 100 Years

Clay blocks by Wienerberger are perfect for modern house construction: these provide thermal insulation, are energy-efficient, sound-insulating and fireproof, allow flexible planning and construction works and are ecological and sustainable.

Due to their lifespan of more than 100 years and their limited maintenance demands, clay bricks are also extremely economical. Not only is a solid building made of clay bricks durable and safe, but it also saves energy because brick walls keep rooms cool in summer and warm in winter. Moreover, they regulate the temperatures and air humidity in the interior and thus provide for a pleasant indoor climate – without the need for an air-conditioning system. Additional advantages are earthquake and fire protection as well as sound insulation.
