The N70 has an exclusive facing brick format: ±240 x 70 x 40 mm (N70/4) and ±240 x 70 x 50 mm (N70/5). Due to these dimensions, the N70 is not only 3 cm narrower, but also 3 cm longer than a traditional Waal format facing brick. A small change with a world of difference!
Choosing the N70 is the same as choosing an ecological facing brick. In fact, the N70’s ecological footprint is much smaller than that of a classic brick. This is because the CO2 emissions from the N70 are 25% lower than from a traditional facing brick (WV50).
This means that the production of the N70 is environmentally friendly. The manufacture of the N70 involves 30% less gas consumption than the manufacture of thetraditional WV 50 facing brick format. A climate-friendly choice!
Due to its slender shape (a width of only 7 cm), the N70 weighs less than atraditional facing brick. The weight per m² on the truck is therefore also lower. This allows more bricks to be transported at once and ultimately makes transport more ecological.
The N70 is also a favourable choice in terms of processing. The narrow model means that fewer stones are needed per m². This also means that less mortar is needed than when working with traditionally sized bricks. You can save about 15% on mortar by using the N70/4. The N70/5 goes one step further, with mortar savings of up to 30% and the use of fewer bricks per m².
So what happens when you use N70 facing bricks in a project? You create a sleek façade with a modern look! The N70 offers ecological advantages here, too: thanks to the thinner outer walls, you can create more interior space or additionally insulate the cavity walls. This, in turn, reduces your energy bills.
Will you choose the N70/5? Then you’ll feel it in your wallet too! In fact, the slender N70/5 facing bricks are up to 12% cheaper per m² compared to the traditional facing brick in WV 50 format.
Can you imagine one stone that looks like two or three amazingly thin stones stacked on top of each other? That's Dubio. This innovative concept allows you to create designs that are impossible with a standard brick. You can place this stone either horizontally, vertically or in a wild pattern to create the mostintriguing shadow lines. Nothing is unthinkable!
Dubio allows you to let your creativity run wild.
