What distinguishes Georgian bricks and what are the advantages of Buildingtek bricks?
Georgians are lucky, because a square meter of real Georgian brick exported to Spain, Poland and Serbia is valued at no less than 230 euros.
The bricks produced in Georgia are distinguished by their characteristics, the clay produced from georgian soil contains a large amount of diopside, wollastonite and orthoclase.
These minerals are unknown to you, but I would like to explain to Georgian brick you why Georgian bricks had an incredibly high price on the European market.
And why in 1850-1920 only houses of the rich were built with Georgian bricks!
Georgian bricks, Kakhuri bricks, and so-called soviet bricks, which are called Georgian gray and dark, all these bricks were produced on the soil of Georgia.
these bricks last for hundreds of years.
Today’s manufactured bricks are 2 times weaker than the old real Georgian bricks, even the bricks produced during the soviet union are many times more durable than today’s factory-produced bricks,
whether they are manufactured in Europe or in Georgia.
We give you a way to add coolness in summer and warmth in summer to your interior, not only beautiful exterior and interior but also classic and antique brick wall,
The main advantage of our bricks obtained from Georgian soil is the main characteristic (thermal mass).
What is thermal mass? Thermal mass is the ability of a material to absorb, store, and release heat or cold.
The ability of a dense material to store heat and cold and then slowly release it.
This means cooler in summer and warmer in winter.
This is a significant advantage considering that more than 30 percent of the average home’s energy use consists of heating and cooling.
Due to its ability to reflect and retain heat, brick is more energy efficient than other building materials.
This will help keep your home cool in the summer and warm in the winter, while also reducing your energy bills.
In addition to warmth and energy efficiency, brick homes offer shelter from the storm—quite literally! Brick houses offer additional high wind protection, in case of an earthquake, the external or internal facade distributes the kinetic energy to its mass,
And the brick-clad interior or exterior concentrates 24.3% of its mass on the outer layer.
Although we are in Tbilisi, research conducted by the Wind Science and Engineering Research Center at Texas Tech University has shown that
That a building with a solid brick facade hit by a hurricane would need to travel at over 80 mph to penetrate the wall of the brick house.
This is important in the case of high winds such as hurricanes, tropical storms or tornadoes.
But we are in Georgia and fortunately Georgians are not bothered by hurricanes with the power that occurs in Texas, so what advantage do we have with bricks?
Buildingtech and Georgian bricks in general are moisture resistant, you will probably come across advertisements for facade bricks on various websites, which offer bricks at a cast price only,
which consist of a mixture of cement and silt, as well as a mixture of several substances,
which produce fake bricks, fake bricks are the term used in our field,
You can tell the difference between natural brick and brick without a detailed observation,
we must say that these bricks may be beautiful, but it does not have the characteristics that the bricks produced by us.
Therefore, for this reason and many more, our bricks stand out with all the qualities that you and your home or business location-building.
And whether your design is an external or an internal facade needs so much, our company will take care of that not only you but also others will enjoy looking at our bricks after 100 years.
Best wishes Buildingtech.
