Hollow clay bricks are replacing solid bricks in order to construct eco-friendly buildings. The clay bricks are lighter, stronger, durable and cost effective. Hollow brick is manufactured using waste materials or natural substitutes and further formed by placing moist clay in a mold. It acts as a thermal and sound insulator due to the air present in the hollow area. It makes plumbing and other electrical drilling activities easier resulting in low labor cost. For instance, major companies offering hallow clay bricks include MRF Bricks, Summit Brick Company and Apollo Brick.
