10 Oct What distinguishes the old Georgian brick and what is the advantage of Buildingtek brick?
We 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 our soil contains a very large amount of diopside, Wellstone and orthoclase. These minerals are unknown to you, but I would like to explain to you why Georgian bricks had an incredibly high price on the European market, and why only the houses of the rich were built with Georgian bricks in 1850-1920. !
Georgian bricks, Kakhuri bricks, the so-called Russian bricks, which are called Georgian gray and dark, all these bricks were produced on the soil of Georgia, our bricks were distinguished not only by their properties, but also by their durability and immortal appearance that can 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 Union of Samchoti are many times more durable than today’s factory-produced bricks, whether it is produced in Europe or in Georgia, we give you a way to add coolness to your interior in summer and warmth in winter, and not only Beautiful exterior and interior but classic and antique brick wall.
The main advantage of our bricks and 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-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.
Old Georgian brick and its energy efficiency:
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 extra high wind protection, in the event of an earthquake, the exterior or interior facade distributes kinetic energy over its mass, and a brick interior or exterior concentrates 24.3% of its mass on the exterior skin.
Although we are in Tbilisi, a study conducted by the Center for Wind Science and Engineering Research at Texas Tech University found that a building with a solid brick facade hit by a hurricane would need to travel 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?
