Natural clay Porotherm blocks in use.

Sustainable building breakfast morning at Chandlers

Published:  28 November, 2013

Those interested in sustainable building are invited to visit Chandlers Building Supplies for a breakfast morning where representatives from Porotherm will be on hand to discuss the benefits of using its blocks as opposed to traditional materials.

Natural clay Porotherm products provide a comfortable, thermal efficient living environment by evening out temperature variations, protecting against the cold in the winter, helping to reduce energy costs, and keeping a home cool in the summer.

Additionally, with 95% less water needed than with traditional bricks, and a much faster construction time, the A+ rated Porotherm blocks also provide an eco friendly solution during construction.

Richard Skinner, commercial director at Chandlers Building Supplies, said: “As more and more customers are looking for energy efficient and sustainable products to use in the home, we wanted to invite people to come and speak to an expert about how Porotherm blocks can provide one solution. Those attending will also be able to enjoy a free breakfast roll and hot drink, and we look forward to welcoming everyone.”

The Chandlers breakfast mornings will take place between 7.30am and 12pm on the dates below:

  • Tuesday 10 December – Thanet branch
  • Wednesday 11 December – Petworth branch
  • Thursday 12 December – Ringmer branch
  • Friday 13 December – Great Bookham branch.
