Hollow bricks are one of the best bricks and the latest technology has been used to make these bricks to provide the best output in the long term to the homeowner.
RealtyNXT explains the concept of hollow bricks and the various benefits of using it.
1. Understanding Hollow Bricks
Hollow bricks are bricks that have several holes in it. These bricks can be used to build both load-bearing as well as non-load bearing walls. These bricks have been proven to be much more beneficial than traditional bricks. Hollow bricks are fire resistant and at the same time much safer than the ordinary bricks.
2. Energy Efficient
Using hollow bricks helps to bring down the expenditure that is spent on cooling or heating the house. This is because hollow bricks keep the house cool during the summers and help to keep the house warm when it is extremely cold. Thus, hollow bricks help to reduce the energy that is consumed by air conditioners or room heaters and also make sure that the residents of the house do not have to spend extra money. Thus hollow bricks are perfect for building homes in a country like India.
The large amount of waste that is generated these days during the construction of a house harms the environment to a great extent. However, hollow bricks do not have any adverse effects on the environment as it is eco-friendly. This is because, hollow bricks are built using recycled waste materials or natural substitutes like granite slurry, rice husk and fly ash.
As hollow bricks are much lighter than solid bricks, the ease of working with them reduces the hours spent on building the house. This means that using hollow bricks helps speed up the construction process and reduce labour costs.
As hollow bricks are larger, it reduces the amount of mortar that is used and also the number of joints that need to be filled during the construction process.
Hollow bricks are much more durable and are recommended for areas that are prone to earthquake.
Since the design of the hollow bricks are such that there are hollow spaces in it, thus the electrical wires and plumbing materials are easier to install in the house. As hollow bricks are very strong, the walls made out of these bricks can be used to install heavy objects like cabinets, bulky shelves and geysers.
