For masonry load-bearing structures usually chosen polnotely building brick. It has a small amount of voids (13%) and used for the erection of columns and pillars, exterior and interior walls, that is, which can withstand own weight and the extra load. The main advantages of the brick – cold resistance (up to F50, and A75), high bending strength and compression (under heavy load suit brand M250 and M300), water absorption – from 8% to 20%. Should bear in mind that brick has a good heat transfer, and exterior walls made from this material would require insulation. Most often it has a rough surface, one can often see cracks and curvature forms. Septic tanks and pit latrines can be constructed from any ceramic brick. This is because, due to its porizirovannoy structure can easily take excess water out of the pit. In addition, ceramic brick is biologically safe material.

For these structures there are techniques like solid masonry, and masonry over a half-brick. To fill the unloaded structures – apartment buildings frames, masonry walls and lightweight exterior walls ideal hollow brick. It is also called the hole, economical, slotted and self-supporting. Holes in the brick come through and closed with one hand, any shape, with horizontal and vertical placement (such bricks more durable). Thermal insulation of hollow bricks above regarding corpulent through closed volume of air, and wall thickness is less. To improve More insulation in the manufacture of bricks achieve porosity solid part – is added to the clay peat, straw, coal and sawdust. Burn out during firing, additives form a void, resulting in a so-called light or Ultra-efficient material. Brick – virtually the only material for masonry chimneys, flues and other thermal devices operate at high temperatures.

For the device stoves, fireplaces, chimneys used fireclay (furnace, refractory) bricks. Because of its density it perfectly in contact with fire and can withstand frequent temperature fluctuations (maximum – 1600 C). Usually sandy-yellow color and can have both classical and wedge-shaped, arched shape. Optimal solution for facing building facades, which are often exposed to precipitation, as well as landscaping (paving, car parks and entrances to garages, stairs, outdoor terraces, roof gutters or courtyard) – clinker bricks. It is produced as a result of high temperature firing plastic clays selected quality up to full sintering without inclusions and voids. Owing to the specific raw materials and special technologies is an exceptionally durable, low porosity, color-, wear-resistant, frost, and as a consequence, long-lasting product. Clinker bricks are distinguished as wide range of sizes, textures and colors.

Western Europe

In fact, the reality is different. Carpets have long been gaining a dominant market share of floor finishing materials in Western Europe and North America. And not just leadership won thanks to the comfort or design variety, namely quality. Only guarantee of some manufacturers to give their coverage for 10 years. The real life of carpet in this case will be more. Carpets from leading manufacturers in the world from Holland, Belgium, Denmark, Germany, Spain, Italy, the USA has excellent performance characteristics that allow them to quietly endure the daily cleaning with no loss of appearance.

When This carpet can be used completely in all areas of office space, even at the entrances. In terms of quality, a recommendation – choose the carpet of the leading manufacturers in the world from Holland, Belgium, Denmark, Germany, Spain, Italy, the United States. In this case, you get a carpet in a series of "put and forget." An ideal variant composition nap – PA. Compared with other synthetic materials – polypropylene, polyacryl, Polyester-polyamide has precisely the best performance. Except when it comes to design VIP areas of office, hotel or a level 5 * country house interiors. For the interior of the premises recommend the use of carpet made of wool (100%) or shesrt + PA (80% + 20%). Best analogs have carpet wear resistance properties comparable to similar properties porcelain.

Given the advantages of carpet on indicators such as comfort, design options, color schemes, the validity of the primacy of carpeting is not in doubt. But there is another reason why Russia in the office instead of the expected use of carpeting gres. This is the reason – the legislation. In recent years adopted several decisions, which greatly tightened the requirements for fire carpeting. And as glad to, but unfortunately, as we often have decisions are made hastily and without consideration of important points. According to current standards adopted by Russian law, in such institutions as kindergartens, schools, cinemas, theaters, hotels on the five floors above and on the other similar objects can only be used granite. Yes, just like in kindergarten bed, linoleum or carpet from leading manufacturers in the world is illegal. The reason is that the floor covering used for the interior uses, such as kindergarten, should be absolutely no fuel. This material is stone. Here on the rock kids can play with all the consequences in the form of permanent injury falls, etc … And use a different floor, a soft, comfortable and not traumatic, which passed all tests in the European laboratories, are widely used in European and American schools and preschools, we can not by law. Or a movie theater. Again here, if you strictly follow the letter of the law can only be used granite. But the carpet, which on its fireproof property allow for clearance of cruise ships – you can not. Here's an imbalance there is in the law that prevents more actively used for interior uses carpeting. But, nevertheless, the world experience developed countries shows that better coverage is not there for decoration of the interiors of hotels, offices, restaurants, private homes, cinemas, theaters. The fact that Russia will be the same – it is not in doubt.
