Abstract: Fire Exit Brick is a structural building material having sufficient crushing strength and it is generated from the combination of Waste Wax and Granite Powder. The aim of this research is to create a brick which is provided in the outer periphery of the windows and door to hold it. During the time of fire, these bricks will lose its strength and creates a fire escape pathway by just pushing the doors and windows towards outer side to save the people from fire accidents without affecting the structural aesthetic look at low manufacturing cost. It also helpful for the fire fighters to rescue the people from the fire.
Keywords: Granite Powder, wax, fire exit, Crushing strength, Water Absorption, efflorescence.
