How Does It Work?
Within a form, a balanced moist mixture is rammed, layer after layer, thus compressing it and gluing all components together, leaving no air inside. Without the need for plaster, the wall is finished once the form is taken apart at the end of the ramming.
The walls are 50 cm thick. In Western rammed earth building, stabilizers such as lime or cement are often added to the mixture. Without these, the walls will go through a process of erosion of approximately 1cm every 100 years.
It is Healthy
The walls do not emit any poisonous materials, VOC’s.
Since the walls are rammed and contain no oxygen they are resistant to mould, fungi and pests.
Humidity level is more or less stable, around 40%.
The walls naturally create a pleasant and calming acoustics.
