WIENERBERGER & SANDTOFT - Innovation And Sustainable Solutions In Bricks, Blocks, Pavers And Roof Tiles

New products from ancient traditions with Wienerberger

Thermally efficient, responsibly sourced, high recycled content, innovative solutions; Wienerberger has it all at this year’s Ecobuild. The world-leading clay specialist is demonstrating a portfolio of products with added sustainability credentials to give customers an even greater choice of eco-friendly options.

Unveiled for the first time at Ecobuild this year, and expected to draw huge attention from developers and specifiers alike, is the super thermally efficient, insulated Porotherm clay block, part of Wienerberger’s precision engineered thin joint walling system. These innovative Porotherm blocks are filled with Perlite, a naturally occurring mineral, and can provide a lambda value of as little as 0.07 W/mK. Already established as a strong, swift modern method of construction, Porotherm has long been seen on the continent as an environmentally friendly alternative for monolithic construction, internal partition and cavity walling. Combining a saving of 95 per cent water consumption on site, thanks to the specialist thin joint mortar, and a recycled content of up to 30 per cent in each block, the system is proving to be a popular eco-solution.

Also being launched at this year’s Ecobuild is the innovative photovoltaic solar solution from Sandtoft roof tiles. The integrated system, which can be used with virtually any type of roof tile, can easily be installed or retrofitted by a professional roofer, thereby reducing the number of trades on the roof and labour time. The system is supplied ready-to-fit and, when designed and installed in accordance with Sandtoft’s RoofSPEC, will carry a 15-year roof design guarantee.

Wienerberger is also demonstrating brick’s rich heritage as a natural and sustainable building material by featuring an African project which won a special commendation at the Worldwide Brick Awards. The project, using air-dried, mud bricks, will be viewed alongside a showcase of Europe’s most impressive contemporary architectural schemes, created with innovative, elegant, modern bricks that are becoming increasingly popular with architects.

Harald Schwarzmayr, managing director of Wienerberger UK, said: “Clay brick has been the building material of choice for thousands of years. Its unrivalled popularity comes down to the unique combination of natural raw material, performance durability, and a longevity which gives products enormous sustainability credentials. At Wienerberger we bring together this heritage with progressive production methods and the demands of modern day construction to create systems and solutions that build on the inherent value of this truly sustainable and adaptable material. The innovative products we have on display at Ecobuild demonstrate the coming together of this traditional material with the 21st century requirements of the building materials industry.”

Eco-friendly products from the entire Wienerberger portfolio will make up the display, demonstrating to architects and specifiers the green alternative for every aspect of the build process - from the Aquata SUDS pavers and the high recycled content and responsibly sourced clay facing bricks, to Sandtoft’s photovoltaic integrated roofing system.

Wienerberger is the world’s biggest brick manufacturer, Europe’s second largest manufacturer of clay roof tiles and a market-leader in clay pavers. Attendance at Ecobuild is free, for more information visit Wienerberger at N930 or go to the website
