Efficient and environmentally friendly, ecobrick is lightweight (approximately half the weight of a clay fastwall brick). When used as an internal wall in conjunction with the traditional clay brick external wall, ecobrick improves the resistance to heat moving through that wall by 57%.

Ecobrick not only improves the thermal efficiency of walls, but improves their acoustic values as well. The aerated part of ecobrick is made up of non-connected air bubbles that do not allow noise to travel across these spaces. As a result, noise bounces off a hard surface, which means that when you use ecobrick inside a room, the background noise will disappear. These air bubbles are also the reason for ecobrick’s higher resistance to heat, in the same way as bulk insulation works in a roof space.


  • 6 star energy rating.
  • Lightweight and simple to install.
  • Excellent acoustic and fire properties.
  • Environmentally friendly and recyclable.
