Interlock Brick-for earthquake Resistant Homes0
It is stronger & cheaper than ordinary red Bricks
New technology earthquake resisstant homes are beeing built after the greatearth quake,2015,in Nepal,Which are cheaper and resistant to future quakes.
The interlocking brick technique developed by Nepali inventor Gyanendra R Sthapit at the Habitech Center of the Asian Institute of Technology in Thailand combines the strengths of rammed earth and compressed blocks. It has been used in post-tsunami reconstruction in Thailand in 2008 and after Cyclone Nargis ravaged Burma in 2010 to build more than 1,000 homes, schools, and health clinics. In Bhutan, over 100 quake-proof houses and schools have been built using the technology.
The interlocking, sun dried bricks are made of one part sand, one part cement and up to eight parts clay. The bricks are compressed manually using a machine. Each brick weighs 9kg, is a fraction of the price of traditional baked bricks, and have been proven to be twice as strong..
The Industry: Only few industry produce sucha a bricks maintaining international quality ,
Some of them are:Eco Cell Industries ,Banepa,Jay Balkumari Cement tile udhyog,Dhobighat
