The IsoHemp hempcrete blocks are particularly suitable for residention constructions, for adding a second wall to existing walls on the inside or from the outside, as well as industrial partitioning and for apartments.
Hempcrete blocks naturally regulate the temperature of the building thanks to their excellent ability to diffuse accumulated heat. This insulating blocks with high inertia protects from :
As a true thermal buffer, the blocks keep the indoor temperature constant and significantly reduce the impact changes in heat between day and night.
Thanks to its high permeability to water vapour, the hempcrete blocks act as a water buffer and offer a constant and healthy indoor climate for the occupants. The relative humidity level is thus stabilised (from 50% to 55%). They can be used for :
Whether IsoHemp hempcrete blocks are used for interior walls or partitions, external and ambient noise will be significantly reduced. In terms of sound insulation, hempcrete blocks acts as a real sound barrier and can lessen the majority of acoustic waves, thus protecting you from noise pollution.

Limestone and clay plasters are also perfectly suitable. For outside, mineral plaster and all types of cladding can be applied directly to the blocks. Double masonry (with bricks, country stone, etc.) is possible using a mechanical tie.
IsoHemp hempcrete blocks are laid like in traditional masonry in running joints. They are bonded in 3mm thin joints with IsoHemp adhesive mortar, which is specially adapted for quick installation. Large but light, they allow easy on-site application. You can find more information on this in our building with IsoHemp hempcrete blocks guide
