특히 호주 NATA(National Association of Testing Authorities)의 엄격한 품질규정에 최첨단 자동화 공정으로 생산되어 중동, 동남아시아 및 북미지역 등 다양한 기후에도 적용 가능합니다.
또한 오스트랄브릭스 점토 벽돌만의 Fire Resistance(화재저항성), Sound Insulation(방음) 및 낮은 Water Absorption(흡수율) 등 뛰어난 기술을 인정받아 전 세계 프리미엄 주택시장에서 지속적으로 점유율을 높이고 있습니다
Austral 점토벽돌은 첨단 공법으로 제조하고 있습니다. 특히 최대 1,100도의 고온에서 제작되어 높은 질량과 밀도를 내포하고 있습니다. 따라서 여름철에는 열에너지를 적극적으로 차단하고 겨울철에는 지속적으로 실내에 열에너지를 전달하는 특징이 있습니다.
Advantage 1: Full brick houses are cooler in summer
Cool relief. That’s the feeling you get entering a full brick home on a hot summer day. The dense mass of full brick walls absorbs and stores heat energy, delaying the passage of heat through the wall. That’s why a full brick wall stabilises internal temperatures, “ironing out” the highs and lows.
Advantage 2: Full brick houses are warmer in winter
In winter, the inner layer of a full brick wall comes into its own, absorbing, storing and slowly releasing heat that is generated inside the house. As the temperature falls the brickwork slowly releases the stored heat into the house. The result is a natural level of comfort without having to constantly resort to heating.
Advantage 3: Full brick houses are a haven of quietYour new full brick home will be a haven of quiet in an increasingly noisy world. The two brick layers in a full brick wall create a very effective barrier to external sounds. Brick walls between rooms or zones of the house reduce the spread of sound within the house.
Advantage 4: Full brick houses are solid, safe and secure
Safety and security rates highly with full brick home owners. They appreciate the solid construction, high level of natural comfort, and the fi re resistance of brickwork. Unlike some building materials, bricks do not give off any gases or chemicals. More reasons to breathe easy with full brick.
Advantage 5: Full brick houses are low maintenance
It’s a given that brickwork is a solid form of construction, that lasts a lifetime and longer. Full brick takes this legendary durability to another level. It not only resists the bumps and scrapes of everyday life with the most minimal maintenance and also provides the framework for generations of additions and extensions.
Advantage 6: Full brick houses are termite resistant
Full brick home owners sleep soundly knowing that the chewing sound in the middle of the night is not termites but just one of the kids raiding the fridge. That’s because full brick walls on a slab dramatically reduce the amount of structural timber, especially at the vulnerable ground level
Advantage 7: Full brick houses are timeless
It takes time, experiences and memory before a ‘house’ will stand out as a ‘home’. The solidity and comfort of a full brick house will linger in your family’s collective memory. Full brick houses are built to last. In years to come your full brick house will stand out as ‘home.’
Advantage 8: Full brick houses are a unique investment
Full brick houses attract a premium price over a ‘comparable’ brick veneer. But you don’t have to wait for that to reap the fi nancial rewards of full brick, including low maintenance, no repainting of face brickwork, and the potential of lower heating and cooling bills What is a full brick house? Simply, the external walls are constructed with two layers (‘leaves’) of bricks, separated by an air gap (‘cavity’). Most people choose to also build the walls between rooms in brick to maximise the benefi ts of full brick construction. Inside and out, a full brick house looks like any other. The exterior can be face brickwork, or rendered and painted, or a blend of render and face brickwork. Internally, most people choose to plaster and paint. That’s why we say your next home deserves full brick, the gold standard in housing. Solar absorptance Rating: In the design of energy effi cient buildings, the architects and consulting engineers need to be able to calculate the heat loss or gain of materials used to construct these buildings. For this reason, our product range has been categorised into three (3) colour groups, Light (L), Medium (M), Dark (D) and an index value has been given to each group to assist with engineering calculations. Joint Finish Samples Durability Legend EXP Exposure Grade Suitable for use in external walls exposed to aggressive environments, such as: areas subjected to salts in the soil, adjacent material or groundwater, in coastal areas exposed to attack from windborne salt spray, or retaining walls subjected to fertilisers and ground salts GP General Purpose Suitable for internal and external walls only when above a sheet or membrane damp-proof course and protected by an adequate coping, eaves, roof or similar top covering. These units should not be directly exposed to saline environments.
