At the start of 2020, bio'bric added the planelle supeRmax to its product range; best performance on the market with a thermal resistance of 1,70 m².K / W. Associated with the special collective brick, the bgv'costo th + (R = 1,50 m².K / W), bio'bric offers the system of excellence for the construction of multi-storey buildings: Ψ L9 = 0,26 W / m².K in concrete floor.
Best thermal performance on the market for energy savings
Avoiding breaks in the insulation in collective dwellings at the right of the openings and at the junction of the floors with the facade makes it possible to stop heat loss, prevent problems of discomfort as well as possible deterioration in the construction, such as the appearance of condensation . The bio'bric collective pack, thanks to its insulating accessories, generates heating savings and therefore less greenhouse gas emissions (Eges) during the building operation phase.
A competitive construction system
This construction system is up to 40% less expensive on the elevation part of the walls compared to a poured concrete solution.
- Naturally insulating, the terracotta brick reduces the thickness of the insulation by up to 4 cm. You gain living space equivalent to a 3 room apartment *. That's more m² sold for the developer.
- The use of the supeRmax planelle avoids having to resort to expensive floor end thermal breakers or to external thermal insulation (ITE).
A constructive solution that respects the environment
The environmental impact of clay brick and therefore its carbon footprint is positive, in particular thanks to its high insulating power. The transition from raw earth to terracotta is a transformation which requires thermal energy and consequently releases carbon (CO²). On the other hand, over the entire life cycle of a building, this impact is offset by the heating savings achieved: Click here to find out more
At the same time, on site, the installation of the bgv'costo th + brick with thin-joint adhesive mortar allows up to 90% water savings compared to the manufacture of a traditional mortar.
In addition, thanks to its height of 31,4 cm (6,35 / m²) and compared to a concrete block of common aggregates, the bgv'costo th + offers a gain of 30% in handling weight. Its advantageous palletization also requires fewer crane rotations on construction sites.

* A study carried out by Pouget Consultant for the FFTB (French Federation of Tiles and Bricks) shows that on a building for collective use of 2 m000 SHAB, or 2 housing units, terracotta brick makes it possible to gain an additional 34 m60. The study was carried out in January 2 on 2017 climatic zones, with 8 cm bricks at R = 20 m².K / W. In its collective pack, bio'bric offers the special collective bgv'costo th + brick with an Rth of 1 m².K / W.
