Forterra’s dedicated ceramic firebricks are extremely
versatile. Able to withstand high temperatures, they are perfect for use in
applications such as kilns, furnaces and fireplaces. Because they are fired at
higher temperatures than standard clay bricks, ceramic firebricks are denser,
which makes them highly resistant to abrasion. They also possess a far lower
thermal conductivity so as to prevent the transfer of heat, while their higher
thermal mass enables heat to be retained and then radiated back once the heat
source has been extinguished.
Available in a variety of heights, firebricks are manufactured
at Forterra’s Red Bank factory, which also produces a variety of chimney,
roofing and flue systems alongside bespoke tiles, pots and finials.
