Wienerberger India Enables Significant Savings in Water Consumption at Construction Sites with its Novel Offering Porotherm Dryfix. System

Wienerberger
As part of its strategic focus on developing sustainable and innovative processes in building construction, Wienerberger India has come up with a simple yet innovative solution through its Porotherm Dryfix. System that can help radically reduce water consumption during the construction phase of a building. The solution also enables enhanced speed of construction resulting in faster delivery of building projects.

The unique properties of Porotherm Dryfix. System eliminates the need of wet mortar and drastically reduces requirement of water for any type of wall construction including infill masonry or partition walls, as well as external walls. It comes along with Porotherm Grinded clay hollow bricks or Smart Bricks as a total solution. The bricks are a hallmark in precision technology, resulting in exceptional dimensional uniformity that can also reduce plaster thickness leading to huge plaster mortar savings for the builder.

The ever-increasing population in cities like Bangalore and Chennai has understandably resulted in rapid urban growth and restructuring. According to a recent study by Down To Earth, a publication of the Centre for Science and Environment (CSE)*, the number of water bodies in Bengaluru has contracted by 79% in the past four decades. The study attributes the reason behind the fall in the number of water bodies due to unplanned urbanization and encroachment. In addition, findings by Wienerberger India shows that construction activities consume an average of 350 litres of water for every single meter of wall construction. As a consequence, government regulations have started restricting usage of natural resources mainly water and sand in greater urban areas.
