Krause Bricks offers a wide portfolio of traditionally manufactured clay bricks. These bricks are available in a variety of different styles and colours to suit many building styles from modern and contemporary to traditional and rustic.

One of the main features that the entire range of Krause bricks has in common is their fire resistant properties. According to new BAL regulations bricks are one of the most fire retardant construction materials for walls.

With such a variety of bricks to choose from, including boutique and customised bricks it is possible to build a property that does not compromise on style, whilst forming part of a passive fire protection plan.

Bricks are fired at temperatures of more than 1000 degrees and as such are a non combustible material that acts to both resist and restrict any fire. Bricks are bad conductors of heat and will not be affected by fire until temperatures rise above 1300 degrees.

As well as being an excellent building material to protect against fire, bricks are environmentally friendly and have the additional benefit of an exceptional thermal mass. Meaning that bricks will help to make properties more energy efficient, keeping them cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter.
