Langkloof Bricks made history by introducing the first new energy efficient Vertical Shaft Brick Kiln (VSBK) in Africa.
This clay brick factory, owned by the Blake family in Jeffreys Bay is on record for pioneering one of the most technologically advanced VSBK kilns in the world today.
This is as a result of the successful implementation of a Technology Transfer programme initiated by the Swiss Agency for Development and Co-operation (SDC), Swisscontact (Swiss Foundation for Technical Co-operation) and SKAT (Swiss Resource Centre and Consultancies for Development).
Langkloof Bricks became a member of the Clay Brick Association of South Africa in 1978, joined Cofesa as a member in 1990 and is currently also a member of the Kouga Business Forum in Jeffrey's Bay.
Langkloof Bricks also fully supports the principles of the BBBEE initiative of the government and is currently rated at Procurement recognition Level 2.
Clay brick has a lifespan of over 100 years, making it ideal for long lasting South African social and residential infrastructure.
Low maintenance, durable clay brick walling saves time and effort across its long lifespan - and always looks great!
Due to its high thermal mass, clay brick stays warm in winter, and cool in summer, reducing your carbon footprint & energy costs.
Clay brick homes and social infrastructure are not just beautiful, they are a solid investment.
