Porotherm hollow bricks are smart walling material that peruses the advantages of natural clay. These are perforated hollow bricks, which can be either horizontally perforated (HP) or vertically perforated (VP). The fact that they are made of natural substances and are hollow from inside makes them far more efficient than the traditional solid bricks and blocks.
Advantages of Porotherm Bricks
Some of the intrinsic advantages common to all the profiles include:
- Light weight (60% less weight than conventional walling material),
- Strong & durable- high Compressive strength
- Excellent Thermal and Sound Insulation
- Low water absorption of ~ 15%, thus minimal risk of dampness, cracks or shrinkage of walls
- Non-susceptible to carbonation thus providing greater durability.
Light weight & faster construction
Porotherm Smart Bricks are 60% lighter than conventional walling material thus allowing substantial savings on structural cost due to reduction in dead load. This also allows for faster construction and ease of handling.Porotherm bricks are the product of a highly innovative and advanced technology. They can be used to construct non-load bearing walls (HP) as well as load bearing walls (VP).
Comfortable and healthy living with Thermal and acoustic insulation
Excellent thermal insulation that’s 45% better compared to conventional walling material. This leads to direct savings on energy consumption on air consumption and heating devices
Natural & Green
The clay used in our production is sourced from de-silting of dead water tanks and only natural additives like coal ash, rice husk and
Strength & Use
High compressive strength due the web design means improved productivity in masonry. It’s also easy to chase and chisel for electrical and plumbing conduits making it simple to install all types of fixtures (geysers, air conditioners, cabinets, closets etc).
Unlimited life and maximum fire
Has an exceptionally long life, it doesn’t burn as it is already fired at 1000 degrees and has a fire rating of F240 – 240 minutes
Less water consumption
Porotherm consumes up to 95% less water during the process of curing while under building construction. It also takes less time for curing and is ready for the next phase just after 24hrs.
Easy Installation Of Appliances And Fixtures
Porotherm allows easy chasseing and
At iCloud Homes, we use branded Porotherm bricks from Weinerberger for construction, to ensure our clients get the best thermal insulation, fire protection & life span for their dream homes.
