Lifebrick® Standard facade cladding
Lifebrick® Standard facade bricks are suitable for damp buildings, base walls and visible walls. Lifebrick® Standard ventilated brick facades work as an actively ventilated facade with high durability and resistance to mechanical damage.
Apart from insulation, Lifebrick® Standard facade bricks give your house an interesting modern look.

Lifebrick Standard – healthy building insulation
Lifebrick® Standard brick is made of crushed stone and weighs 1.9 kg. Thanks to the materials used, it has high diffusion resistance and high compressive strength. Lifebrick® Standard brick is used for the construction of actively ventilated facades.
It can be used mainly in projects in which the aesthetic effect is of the primary concern without having to insulate the facade (e.g. older stone houses, damp walls, etc.). Moisture is removed from the masonry through the air flow in the cavity formed between the clad wall and the masonry.
Lifebrick® – self-supporting and self-locking protected brick design
The shape of Lifebrick® facade bricks was designed based on years of experience with facade cladding to meet the building regulations and functional requirements for facade structures. Lifebrick® bricks are provided with two-point locks and form a self-supporting and self-locking structure, which distinguishes them from suspended facade systems.
Structurally, the facade cladding made of Lifebrick® bricks is highly consistent and stable. Not even a single brick can get loose and fall out of the facade. The unique shape is protected throughout the European Union. Lifebrick® facade bricks are purely a Czech product.
Moisture removal from the facade
Thermal insulation of a required thickness can be applied beneath the Lifebrick® Standard facade. It should be borne in mind that insulation is not only about the insulation thickness, but also about keeping the perimeter walls dry. Only dry structural elements can ensure proper insulation and heat accumulation.
Lifebrick® Standard facade brick is suitable for the construction of an actively ventilated facade with thermal insulation. It is recommended for buildings with high moisture, possibly also as a replacement of restoration plasters.
Moisture removal is ensured by the air flow in the ventilation cavity formed between the brick and the clad wall.
