Optibric PV S25: For Low-Consumption Housing (Building Material)

In wall bricks, Imerys Terre Cuite has a comprehensive offering that is compatible with the latest standards for energy efficiency, environment-friendliness, seismic constraints and their expected evolution. Launched in 2010, Optibric PV S25 is enjoying sales growth in the added-insulation wall segment. The 25cm-thick brick is well suited to construction projects in seismic areas. It also meets the requirements of future French regulations on thermal efficiency (RT 2012) and low-consumption buildings. At 1.61 m2.K/W its heat resistance is equivalent to 5 cm of additional insulation.
