2. Bricks offer thermal properties
Brick is a building material that has exceptional "thermal mass” properties. Thermal mass is the ability of a heavy, dense material to store heat and then slowly release it. This means that during summer, brick homes stay cool during the hottest part of the day, while in the cooler months, the walls store your home's heat and radiate it back to those inside. Ideally suited to Australia’s sunny climate, they can be easily combined with insulation to provide the best heat-efficient building solution around.
3. Bricks are made from natural products
Brick is predominantly made from clay and shale, which are among the most abundant materials available on earth. They are created with minimal waste, all of which can be reused in future products. Because they are made of natural products and fired under incredible conditions, they can withstand almost everything that nature can throw at them without losing their beauty or strength. Clay bricks are inert and are not prone to giving off volatile materials. Clay brickwork and its constituents are non-toxic.
