Clay bricks suitable for general building work that is to be plastered.
Clay bricks suitable for use, plastered or unplastered, for general building work below damp-proof course or under damp conditions or below ground level where durability rather than aesthetics is the criteria for selection.
Claytile Solid Bricks

ADVANTAGES

  • Superior compressive strength.
  • Labour savings – not necessary to plug corner voids before plastering compared to perforated bricks.
  • Aluminium window and door frames can be fixed with standard wall plugs.
  • Heavy mountings/safes can be fixed with rawl bolts – brick does not have internal voids compared to perforated.
  • Smooth finish means garages can be bagged finished – savings on plastering.
  • Robot setting with process control ensures consistent quality lower mortar usuage and ease of plastering.
  • Palletised and shrink wrapped – lower site wastage and pilfering.
  • Modern tunnel kiln fired using embodied energy – low emissions.

ECO FRIENDLY FACTS

  • All clay raw material is mined on site, blended with zero waste. Mined areas are rehabilitated to original agricultural state.
  • Where possible, production processes are scheduled for off-peak periods to help reduce demand on the National Electricity Grid.
  • The Plant is automated which means no forklifts are used to move bricks within the production process, leading to fuel savings and emission reduction.
  • Bricks are perforated (dematerialization) in a staggered design that retains structural strength, while minimizing clay usuage, thereby reducing required energy costs.
  • As bricks are lighter, considerably more product can be transported to site, meaning a reduction in vehicle numbers and therefore lower emissions per square meter of walling.
  • Our uniform brick requires less mortar to lay and reduces site wastage.
  • The favourable geographical location of our factory gives us the advantage to easily and efficiently reach major Cape Town building sites.
