Thermal insulation & acoustic insulation in hemp and lime

To insulate your old stone walls, cob walls, brick walls, you can use lime and hemp. Depending on the type of wall, the hempcrete’s thickness can be variable, which will also determine the thermal and acoustic comfort of your home.

Some examples of “basic thickness” :

Old stone or cob walls (min 50cm) = 5 to 6 cm of hemp and lime
Red brick masonry (G7 type) and concrete block (thickness: 20 cm) = 10 cm of hemp and lime (sheeting)

The main interest of hemp-lime coatings is the improvement of thermal and acoustic insulation of stone and cob walls which are cold during the winter.
With this type of coating, you remove the “walls cold sensation” (radiation), while keeping a hygrometric balance and inertia benefits.

Advantages of hemp and lime mortars:

An inside coat from 5 to 6 cm of hemp and lime is perfect for:
