Clay brick is a durable and timeless building material that complements the aesthetic and functional needs of any building. Structures that were built from clay brick and remain standing after centuries of exposure, have proved the durability of clay brick many times over. Thus, with very little maintenance, buildings made from clay brick can outlast many generations. The long lifespan of clay brick structures is partly due to their impressively high load-bearing capacity, high dimensional stability and compressive strength. These properties also minimise the risk of cracking, ensuring the structural integrity of buildings.
