The excellent insulation properties of Tradical® hemp and lime products deliver thermal and acoustic performance that exceeds that of many other forms of construction.
In addition, the vapour permeability of the combined products provides a self-regulation of humidity levels within the building that provides comfortable living and working environments. The humidity control also contributes to the low maintenance of the building fabric that does not trap moisture within itself.
These comparative thermal images of houses built using conventional cavity wall construction materials and hemp lime products clearly demonstrate the high insulation that solid wall hemp lime construction delivers. Images courtesy of BRE.
The surface of Tradical® hemp and lime products does not feel cold to touch because of their thermal properties and this enhances the feeling of thermal comfort within any building.
