Porotherm bricks: why should you care if your apartment walls have them?
Homes are no longer just four walls. What goes inside your four walls do matter when it comes to your comfort, economic aspects and the worth of your investment. The Hollow clay blocks which are known as Porotherm Bricks are designed to provide better efficiency, durability, ease of use while constructing houses, office buildings and other infrastructure facilities. These blocks of bricks are a host of many benefits which helps in cost-effective wall construction. These are largely produced and come in two types: Non-Load Bearing Clay Hollow Blocks and Load Bearing Clay Hollow Blocks.
Non-load bearing wall solution
Porotherm Horizontally Perforated Clay Bricks (Porotherm HP)
Porotherm HP clay hollow blocks are mainly used as infill masonry for non-load bearing wall construction. Porotherm HP is widely used across South India for the construction of Apartments, Independent Houses, Villas, Hospitals, Educational Institutions, Commercial Buildings, and warehouses. The product highly recommended for high rise apartment buildings.
Porotherm Thermobrick has developed with the principle of thermal insulation. This has made Thermobricks become a unique walling material. Such blocks are highly proficient that keeps the interiors cool in summer and warm in winter. Porotherm Thermobrick is the best available energy-efficient brick in the market.
