Consider thermal mass rather than R-values alone

While historical buildings remind us of the enduring and aesthetic attributes of clay brick in architecture, the current focus on global warming, the need to optimise energy efficiency in buildings and the renewed interest in passive solar design principles are all reminders of the thermal properties of clay brick walling.

Clay brick for thermally efficient construction

Research continues to present the many reasons why clay brick construction, so widely applied in South Africa for house construction, deserves its pre-eminent status. Equally interesting is the finding that clay brick internal partition walls add so much more to the thermal comfort equation of houses than previously thought.

Energy efficiency in light steel frame housing

SASFA, the Southern African Light Steel Frame Building Association, recently commissioned the Built Environment Division of the CSIR, the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research, to conduct a comparative thermal performance analysis for light steel frame housing and masonry housing. The research findings point to the energy efficiency of the light steel frame (LSF) house in terms of a lower need for electricity to power mechanical heating and cooling – to keep the internal temperature within a prescribed comfort range.

Clay brick in sustainable house construction

Research in the USA, Australia and South Africa continues to present the many reasons why clay brick construction, so widely applied in South Africa for house construction, deserves its pre-eminent status in sustainable house construction.

Alternate lightweight building systems cannot compare with double skin clay brick construction

For South Africa's climates, thermal modelling studies, validate that a walling material's R value is not representative of the thermal value for energy efficient house design properties of a material. This rep
