Bricks and clinkers

Building with bricks and clinkers from OLFRY is one of the many ways to design the most attractive exterior walls of a house, not only because of the huge choice of colours. No other building material offers you such a large variety of shapes and surfaces.
Of course, our bricks and clinkers are certified according to DIN EN 771.

The benefits at a glance

The choice of a clinker façade has a positive effect on the long-term preservation of the building fabric as well as on the living climate and finances. Plastered walls can lead to unnecessary maintenance costs – especially due to algae growth. Approximately 75 percent of all plaster buildings are affected. Façades made of brick, on the other hand, are almost maintenance-free. This is also confirmed by the federal government’s construction damage report: Over a period of 80 years, therefore, only minimal renovation measures are required for double-shell wall constructions. In addition to other advantages such as protection against mechanical influences and excellent sound insulation, clinker bricks offer an unbelievable variety of designs.

You can also get a personal impression of your favourite brick in by visiting our exhibition or our show garden in Vechta. If Vechta is too far away, we will of course be happy to come to you.

Clinker is maintenance-free, stable in value and durable.
Moisture repellent
Clinker has low water absorption – algae and moulds don’t stand a chance.
Shock and impact resistant
Clinkers form a high-quality protective layer that protects against all mechanical influences.
Noise protection
Clinker bricks provide excellent sound insulation.
Freedom of design
Clinker bricks offer a variety of possibilities for the individual design of façades.

For single-shell, double-shell and also passive houses, clinker bricks and clinker strips are the best investment.

Single-shell construction means: The inner wall is also the exterior wall, nowadays provided with a sensitive insulation layer, which then has to be protected from the weather with plaster or preferably with clinker strips (external thermal insulation composite system, ETICS). In a double-shell construction, the load-bearing wall and the basic structural substance as well as the insulation layer are sustainably protected from the weather by a brick façade (weather shell). The choice of clinker has a positive effect on the long-term preservation of the building fabric as well as on the living climate.
Even when building a passive house, you no longer have to do without the living comfort of a double-shell masonry and its individual appearance. With modern insulating materials, passive house standards can be met with a wall thickness of 45.5 centimetres, for example, and you do not lose valuable living space. Regardless of the construction method, a clinker façade is the best investment.
