Why build with Premier Clayblock?
Build A Superior Home
Premier Clayblock is pleased to partner with our European manufacturers who have a long history of research, design and manufacture of superb Clayblock.
This unique Clayblock system has been developed and refined over the last 150 years. This great system has a lot of fantastic features and benefits to help take our lifestyle to the next level in New Zealand.
Building your home with Premier Clayblock offers the complete building system. Thermally, acoustically, environmentally, this natural product will create an amazing place to live.
A comfortable living environment in winter & summer
The characteristics of an agreeable living climate are:
a pleasant room temperature all year round
ideal humidity levels
healthy indoor air
With their outstanding thermal insulating properties and their ability to store heat for long periods, Premier clay blocks create a pleasant ambience and room climate. A house built of clay blocks is always comfortably warm.
The monolithic clay block wall provides a unique combination of thermal insulation and heat storage.
And what is more, it is pleasantly cool in summer!! Clay blocks are unique in offering high thermal insulation with equally high heat retention properties. This natural air conditioner ensures a relatively constant indoor temperature as well as protection from the heat in summer. No other building material is capable of the same.
Lowest moisture content of all comparable building materials
The higher the level of moisture is, the worse the thermal insulation.
The general rule of thumb is: for every one percent more moisture, thermal insulation is reduced by approx. 10%.
Clay blocks are dried and then fired during the manufacturing process. They have the shortest drying time and the lowest residual moisture of all comparable building materials.
This is particularly true when comparing them with blocks containing binding agents (cast stone, lightweight concrete), the final drying of which takes up to 3 years or more. Clay blocks thus provide thermal insulation from the very beginning.
Real benefits right from the start
High thermal insulation blocks save money.
Additional insulation is unnecessary.
With dry clay blocks, the thermal insulation is effective right from the start and this results in considerable savings on heating costs immediately.
Any costs resulting from mould growth are as good as ruled out. The stable form of the clay block combined with the recommended plaster lowers the risk of cracks forming subsequently.
Ecological and sustainable building - at best monolithic (plastered inner face, clay brick, rendered outer face) - finished
The facade built as a monolithic wall without any artificial insulation is free of harmful biocides. (The biocidal treatment of fungal and algae growth poses problems with artificial insulation systems.)
Compound thermal insulation systems are more susceptible than a rendered monolithic wall and they have a limited lifespan (max. 30-40 years). After that, the facade has to be disposed of as hazardous waste. This is not only absurd from an ecological aspect, but also very expensive. - This insulation mania will cause considerable ecological problems in the future!
Production in the most modern facilities in Germany.
All products meet essential regulatory compliance.
All Premier Clay blocks are certified with the newest Environmental Product Declaration
High thermal insulation - high climate shelter
Premier Clay blocks meet present and future requirements for maximum insulation in monolithic construction without additional insulation on the external wall.
Outstanding thermal insulation from the beginning with a very low coefficient of thermal conductivity of 0.08 W/mK and below. This allows the construction of energy efficient buildings including passive houses.
Tip: Actual thermal insulation even higher:
The clay blocks are relatively heavy due to their high density and store natural energy from the sun longer than all other types of building material, thus saving additional heat energy.
Minimum upkeep costs and maximum value retention
A house built of clay blocks requires hardly any maintenance for decades and therefore the cost of its upkeep is very low. A brick-built house is also a safe investment which you can really use and experience now -not in a virtual world, abstract or perhaps never.
Tried and test clay block building material
Very low cost of upkeep
High resale value
Effective acoustic insulation
The optimized process of building with the Premier Caly block walling system offers considerable advantages in construction:
Security in a perfectly coordinated construction system
Simple, fast, efficient
Savings in labour and wages – up to 35% and higher
90% less mortar, therefore 90% less moisture in buildings
Uniform plaster base with virtually no joints
Maximum fire protection
The clay block has already been through the fire. Therefore, a house built of clay blocks offers the highest possible standards of safety and protection against fire:
Non-flammable clay block
Long resistance times up to 120 minutes
No toxic gases
Clay blocks are universal and flexible in use - from detached houses to multi-storey buildings:
Complete range of clay blocks for exterior and interior walls
High compressive strengths
Solid, quality construction
Clay blocks for sound-proof walls
Extremely high compressive strength
