Ashur Brick holds several workshops in Iraq on latest brick technologies from Europe
In partnership with CLEIA S.A.S and with participation of several leading architects and engineers and experts in the construction industry in Kurdistan Region of Iraq, Ashur Brick held several unique workshops to introduce the latest brick standards of Insulating Vertical Heat Insulating bricks.
CLEIA, French engineering company based in Burgundy, has built its international reputation in heavy clay sector, automation being its core business.
VSI clay bricks offer more comfortable housing and reduces construction cost and schedule, whilst helping the environment ; click here for all technical details VSI : Vertical holes / Structural (load bearing) / heat Insulating have several advantages as a construction material for walls including:
Healthy & comfortable
heat & sound insulated
no humidity nor heat transfer
High bearing capacity enabling up to four floors building
Lower construction cost thanks to savings on Steel, concrete and mortar Formwork, manpower, masons, weight of building
Faster erection / reduced construction nuisance :Bricks are surfaced and glued.
Bricks from part of the structure, no formwork, steel in inserted within brick, concrete is casted within bricks
Suitable in seismic zones. "No risk" on % cement
Reduced air conditioning & heating cost thanks to high heat insulation
