Basalt Bricks for Fire Rated Buildings

stone-build-basalt-brick-cladding

Due to the Aluminium Oxide content, Basalt makes for an excellent natural fire resistant brick cladding for any structure; irrespective of the shape or size. Our Standard Bricks are also available in a minimum thickness of 70mm as determined by most international Building Standards for the minimum thickness of Masonry (Stone) cladding.

Made from the fires of the Universe, Basalt melts at temperatures over 1400ºC and is one of the most dominant rock types on Earth and many of the planets in our known Solar System.

Build for an Eternity, Build with Basalt.

With Low Embodied Energy, Build with Natural Basalt Designer Bricks

Our Basalt is 100% natural. Not cast and called Basalt as a marketing angle.

With significant environmental benefits, no firing or baking, no hazardous Carbon Monoxide, Sulphuric Acid or any of the other pollutants that brick kilns produce globally, Basalt STONEBRICK™ will last longer and provide more thermal mass for your home.
