To provide a partition wall between living units and to insulate them thermally and/or acoustically, there are several possible systems, depending on whether the wall also has to support a floor or not. Load-bearing walls are built using conventional masonry or using load-bearing walls elements that are then lined with hemp blocks that have a certain separation from the load-bearing wall. The gap will be filled with flexible mineral wool insulation to ensure an optimum acoustic outcome. Non-load-bearing walls are built as double masonry walls of hemp blocks separated by flexible insulating mineral wool. The two walls are held together by fastenings embedded in the masonry joints.
