Cost-effective and maintenance-free
As a ceramic product fired at approx. 1,100 degrees, brick, often also called clinker, is an absolutely colour-fast, shape- and UV-resistant building material. Brick ages "with dignity", because not only is fired clay almost indestructible, it becomes more beautiful over time: old bricks from demolished buildings are in great demand and are often reused.
Protection from cold, heat and moisture
Brick stores heat and moisture and releases them evenly. Walls made of brick have a climate-controlling effect, i.e. they compensate for temperature fluctuations: when it is very hot, the interior of a brick house remains pleasantly cool for a comparatively long time; when there is frost, a brick building cools down slowly. Built with cavity walls, brick buildings easily meet the passive house standard. The walls are vapour permeable, i.e. they not only absorb moisture well, but also release it again quickly and evenly. Thanks to their lime content they also have a fungicidal and antiseptic effect on the interior climate. Algae too are unable to gain a foothold on a brick surface.
Naturally good with natural ingredients
Each brick contains the four elements earth, water, air and fire. Nothing else. The fact that only natural (and regional) raw materials are used for production ensures a natural colouring and almost unlimited combination possibilities between the different colours and firings.
The firing process used in its manufacture means that brick is a completely non-.flammable product. It is not for nothing that firewalls are traditionally constructed from brick.
Sleep peacefully with good sound insulation
Good sound insulation is a factor for better living quality and is important for ensuring that a building retains its long-term value. Brick offers excellent protection from exterior noise.
