SOUND OF SILENCE
Traffic, noisy neighbours, barking dogs, even raucous children elsewhere in the house... There are so many ways noise can disturb sleep or everyday peace. Choosing brick as a building material can help. “Due to its high thermal mass, brick has excellent sound-dampening qualities. Whether used for external walls or between rooms within a home, brick provides superior sound insultation so you can enjoy peace and quiet in your home,” says Brett Ward, general manager of international marketing at Brickworks.
