By the way, hollow clay brick always impresses with its compressive strength.
How do you choose your building materials? Masons in the know favor fire rated brick products for load-bearing walls. More and more, they also use them for interior projects. In this way, clay bricks protect the integrity of a structure on the outside as well as on the inside.
