Ecobrick

Efficient and environmentally friendly, ecobrick is lightweight (approximately half the weight of a clay fastwall brick). When used as an internal wall in conjunction with the traditional clay brick external wall, ecobrick improves the resistance to heat moving through that wall by 57%.

Ecobrick not only improves the thermal efficiency of walls, but improves their acoustic values as well. The aerated part of ecobrick is made up of non-connected air bubbles that do not allow
noise to travel across these spaces. As a result, noise bounces off a hard surface, which means that when you use ecobrick inside a room, the background noise will disappear. These
air bubbles are also the reason for ecobrick’s higher resistance to heat, in the same way as bulk insulation works in a roof space.

Ecobrick:

  • 6 star energy rating
  • lightweight and simple to install
  • excellent acoustic and fire properties
  • environmentally friendly and recyclable
