Why Clay Bricks?
Building materials provided by nature
Clay bricks are among the oldest building materials in the world and still extremely popular among Malaysians. This does not come as a surprise, because clay building materials are natural, versatile, durable, and of stable value.
Selecting the right building materials is a decision for life. A modern building must comply with numerous ecological and economic demands.
Brick Dotcom is the leading producer that contain the experience and know-how of nearly 50 years in producing Clay Brick products in Malaysia.

strong & safe
Clay bricks are permanent. They are weather and age proof. Bricks don’t get tired like other man-made materials. They won’t twist or warp, rot or decay, erode or dent. They are resistant to the extremes of all climate and being non-combustible, they don’t assist the spread of fire.
Clay bricks and tiles are aesthetic and versatile. Thanks to a wide range of available colours, shapes and surfaces, the number of possible designs and variations are almost unlimited. The colour spectrum ranges from super white to classic red to coal-black. Available variants include rough, smooth and glazed surfaces, elongated and wide formats. Roof tiles and facing bricks as well as pavers can be perfectly coordinated with one another.
Clay bricks require virtually no upkeep or repairs, avoiding ongoing costs. Unlike other products, the colour of clay bricks is baked into the product so it lasts for a lifetime.

stable in value Even after many years, buildings made of clay building materials retain their value - or it even increases. Owing to their durability, stability and special living quality, brick buildings and apartments are in great demand and achieve high resale values.
Clay blocks, facing bricks and clay roof tiles, as well as pavers, are particularly sustainable and natural building materials because they consist of the natural raw materials clay and water. Bricks and tiles are absolutely free of pollutants and allergens and thus especially compatible with humans and nature.
BRICKS BUILDINGS ARE SUSTAINABLE
To be sustainable a design must consider more than just environmental impacts.
It balances environmental, economic and societal goals.
It is more than just a certification from a rating system.
Brick is made from abundant natural resources (clay and shale) and is readily recycled for use in the manufacturing process or other uses. Brick manufacturers address sustainability by locating plants in close proximity to mines; incorporating waste products and recycled materials into brick; reducing energy use, water use and atmospheric emissions; and utilizing landfill gas and other wastes for fuel. Brickwork used in sustainable designs can provide structure, finish, acoustic comfort, thermal comfort, good indoor air quality, fire resistance, impact resistance and durability, all in one product. Brickwork can help meet requirements of many certification rating systems in the areas of development density, storm water management, heat island effect, improved energy performance, building reuse, construction waste management, materials reuse, recycled content and regional materials. Brickwork can contribute to improved indoor air quality by eliminating the need for paints and the resulting volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and by eliminating a food source for mold.
