The Hempro system comprises two types of hemp block of 30 cm thickness: solid blocks and machined blocks (holed blocks and U-blocks). Located in the building envelope, the machined blocks serve as the insulating lost formwork for the structural frame made from the reinforced concrete poured into it.
The holed blocks constitute the formwork for the columns, while the U-blocks allow the beams to be poured that subsequently support the floor and roof.
From single-family homes to buildings passing by the eco-neighbourhood, you can easily build low-energy, very low-energy or passive buildings.
The standard wall of the Hempro system is made with a 30 cm or 36 cm thick IsoHemp hemp block. To achieve even higher thermal performance, a lining with a second hemp block masonry in different thicknesses can be considered.
Whether the load-bearing structure in column-beam systems is made of wood, steel or concrete, hemp blocks can be used to create insulating and breathable single walls that do not require the use of any other insulating material.
Whether in timber framework or lightweight frame, hemp blocks can be used to make the envelopes for all wooden building systems. True allies of the comfort of wooden houses, hemp blocks compensate for their low thermal inertia by storing and redistributing heat during temperature variations.
In double masonry, the hemp blocks are adapted to envelope the load-bearing masonry made of concrete, terracotta, aerated concrete or silico-calcareous materials. Hemp blocks guarantee stable insulation performance over time, offer very good support for finishes, simplify technical details and site management.
