Fire testing carried out by the CSTB in France on 300mm thick walls made of Hemcrete blocks laid in lime mortar, with no plaster or render, showed that the wall remained intact for 1hr and 40 minutes. The Hemcrete blocks did not fail after this time, but the mortar joints did. Based on the results of these tests Tradical Hemcrete has been approved in locations where one hour fire resistance is required
3 NATURAL & ABUNDANT MATERIALS: HEMP, LIME AND WATER
By its design, hempcrete creates a circular model consisting of: growing, extracting, producing, building, renovating, reusing and composting.
Designed for thermal regulation within new buildings and renovations
Very low environmental impact: 1 m² of Tradical Hempcrete wall stores 100 kg of CO2
