FELDHAUS

Innovation, excellence and responsibility.

Standstill is out of the question at Feldhaus. In the more than 160 years of the company's history, steady growth can be seen, as the capital generated is continuously reinvested.

Feldhaus controls all processes such as marketing, sales and production from one location. This means that synergy effects, e.g. with regard to customer requirements and associated technical clarifications, can be implemented immediately. Last but not least, the close local roots of the owners with the location also contribute to the fact that continuous investments are made in state-of-the-art technology. This enables the company to maintain its technological lead.

The conversion of the angle apron setting plant in 2018/2019 shows that investments are also constantly being made in the saving of resources. This project, as well as the project for the construction of the third tunnel kiln in Bad Laer, are subsidized by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and the State of Lower Saxony (SER).

QUALITY BENEFITS

Outstanding quality with the highest level of reliability.

Feldhaus stands worldwide for outstanding quality, durability, uncompromising reliability and innovative strength. Clinker bricks for impressive facades and surfaces - Made in Germany.

We work closely with the trade and crafts, partners and processors, and regularly check how the quality of the products is perceived in the market. We use innovative methods to achieve continuous improvement of our products, solutions and services. Thousands of customers rely on clinker bricks from Feldhaus.

BENEFITS

The quality and durability of our products, our innovative strength and reliability, and our extensive product range are the reasons for our leading position in the market. Our plants are equipped with state-of-the-art technology. Through permanent optimization, Feldhaus products have also conquered a leading place in the international market for energetic renovations and new buildings in combinations with thermal insulation composite systems.

As a reliable partner of trade and craft, we offer an extensive clinker assortment and are constantly developing new products to meet current color and style trends. One example of our innovative spirit is the production of brick slips in waterstroke look with the physical properties of a clinker.

In addition to clinker slips and facing clinkers, the product range also includes robust paving clinkers and small pavers for mosaic formation. All clinker products are fired at temperatures up to 1,200°C. This makes them particularly resistant to all weather-related influences.

The beauty is that clinker bricks from Feldhaus gain character over the years and thus inspire builders and investors for decades.

CHARACTERISTICS

One of the quality properties of Feldhaus clinker bricks in particular is their low water absorption. While conventional hand-molded bricks absorb up to 20 percent water, the value for Feldhaus clinker bricks in hand-molded design, for example, is only between two and five percent. Damaging weather influences cannot harm the clinker. The stone remains clean and does not weather, the surface retains its beautiful appearance and color.

ACCORDING TO ENEV REQUIREMENTS

A house should be cool in summer and warm in winter. It should have an attractive facade that you do not have to worry about, that defies wind and weather and also survives many generations undamaged. With clinker bricks from Feldhaus, these requirements are easy to meet. Feldhaus clinker bricks protect and decorate new buildings in equal measure and meet the requirements of the German Energy Saving Ordinance (EnEV). With the appropriate insulation, heating costs and maintenance costs for your facade are reduced permanently and noticeably.

Feldhaus clinkers are also perfect for old buildings. They are simply bricked with some distance in front of the load-bearing wall, without interfering with the existing building structure. Klinkerriemchen are glued directly to the existing facade with an ETIC system. This is how you turn old buildings into real eye-catchers.

QUALITY

All our products are subject to a constant control and quality assurance process. Quality, warranty and safety are top priorities at Feldhaus. Every single Feldhaus employee - whether in product development or support - contributes to quality assurance.

At every stage of production, employees in the Feldhaus laboratory have access to reserve samples and material, so that the cause can be quickly determined in the event of quality impairments. The employees carry out quality protection tests on the burned clinkers. The special properties of a clinker - the low water absorption of up to six percent and the raw density of the body of at least 1.9 kg/dm³ are assigned to a compressive strength class. Although the clinker is densely fired, it still has a capillary effect. The capillaries absorb water and release it again. This diffusivity is crucial for wall construction and all weathering.

Our ceramic engineers are constantly experimenting with new clinker formulations in the laboratory. Products are tested in the small kiln and surface treatments are experimented with. Firing plates of new clays provide information about color and shrinkage behavior.

In addition to the tests of our own laboratory, we undergo independent third-party testing by Güteschutz Ziegel e.V.

Feldhaus clinker bricks meet the requirements of DIN EN 771-1 in conjunction with DIN 20000-401. Clinker brick slips are manufactured in accordance with these standards. Paving clinkers meet DIN EN 1344 and DIN 18503.
