• Tradical® Hemcrete® for wall construction
Tradical® Hemcrete® provides the filling and the insulation for timber-framed walls. The wooden frame can be completely encompassed by the Tradical® Hemcrete® or the timber can be made visible on one or both faces, depending upon the dimensions of walling and timbers.
As well as being ideal for new construction, Tradical® Hemcrete® is well suited for the renovation and repair of old timber-framed buildings as a viable and sympathetic replacement for the original wall in-fill.
One very important product feature is that the breathability brought by Tradical® Hemcrete® is continuously drying the wooden structure therby contributing to its longevity.
Among the important technical considerations for wall infilling materials, is that the excellent vapour permeability provided by Tradical® Hemcrete® is continuously drying the wooden structure and thereby protecting it from deterioration mechanisms and extending its longevity. The light weight of Tradical® Hemcrete® means that lightweight timber framing and foundation structures can be used which reduces costs and construction time making Tradical® Hemcrete® a very efficient building medium.
The high insulation of the Tradical® Hemcrete® in-fill means that single wall structure provides sufficient insulation and does not require additional insulation and avoids the need for cavity wall construction. This makes construction speed and simplicity a very attractive feature of Tradical® Hemcrete®construction.
