Hemplime is a durable building material that is energy-efficient and recyclable.

The benefits of hemplime

ECOLOGICAL

ECOLOGICAL

Hemplime is an energy-efficient and durable building material made of renewable raw materials. The hemp shives that are used are a by-product of the cultivation of hemp seeds and fibers. It does not produce any harmful emissions, it is recyclable at the end of its life cycle it does not leave any harmful substances behind (no pollution).

HUMIDITY REGULATION

HUMIDITY REGULATION

Hemplime is a permanent and stable humidity buffer which ensures a constant level of humidity in your interior. You will not have any problem of humidity or condensation.

WELL-BALANCED CO2

WELL-BALANCED CO2

Hemp is the champion of CO2 absorption during the growth of the plant, up to 4 times more than a forest of the same size. The absorption of CO2 by the plant exceeds the emission of CO2 that occurs during the cultivation and the construction process. In addition, even after processing and installation, the absorption of CO2 keeps going on during the continuation of the carbonation process.

HEALTHY

HEALTHY

An excess of air density in combination with harmful components (often synthetic) in building materials makes the indoor air often more unhealthy than the outdoor air.
Our hemplime, the basis for an open, transpirable house, is not treated with chemicals and has therefore a positive impact on the quality of the indoor air.
Our emission report confirms this.

ENERGY-EFFICIENT

ENERGY-EFFICIENT

Hemplime offers a good thermal insulation. Contrary to the classic insulation materials, lime-hemp has an additional and continuous moisturizing and thermal effect and a high heat storage capacity. Heat needs up to 4 times more time to get through the hemplime. As a consequence, a house built in lime-hemp requires a minimum of techniques or ventilation systems to create a pleasant and stable indoor climate.
ACOUSTIC INSULATION

ACOUSTIC INSULATION

Hemplime has an excellent sound insulation. Vibrations and sound waves are absorbed. In Scandinavia, the sound walls along the motorways are made of hemplime.

Application of our products

Renovation/insulation

With hemplime, walls, floors and roofs can be insulated efficiently. The result is a ‘transpirable’ and humidity resistant construction layer with excellent insulating, moisturizing and acoustic characteristics.

Residential construction

With our self-supporting hemplime walls we combine the benefits of wooden frame construction and traditional construction without the disadvantages.
Within a few days, the structural work of your home is built.

Industrial construction

Industrial buildings demand specific standards and requirements for climatisation and humidity regulation. Hemp in a box customizes the hemplime walls to fully comply with the specific requirements of schools, offices, storage facilities and halls.
