Lime Stabilised Compressed Earth Blocks (LCEBs)

Lime Stabilised Compressed Earth Blocks (LCEBs)

Natural Building Blocks

Lime Stabilised Compressed Earth blocks (LCEBs) are structural blocks of compressed clay rich earth stabilised with lime. The lime stabilisation makes them stronger and far more resistant to water than standard CEBs so much so that they can be used for external walling and directly rendered onto.

LCEBs used together with Warmshell external wall insulation creates a natural and low embodied energy external walling system. See our building systems page.

LCEBs are identical in size, using a slurry mortar these blocks are incredibly quick and easy to lay.

Uses:

Internal and external load bearing walls

High mass internal walls

New build homes

Repair of rammed earth buildings

Structural base to earth floors

Benefits:

Extremely low embodied energy

Structurally proven

100% natural healthy materials

Easy and quick to lay

Easy and quick to insulate using Warmshell system

Standard Block 355mm x 205mm x 100mm

Technical Characteristics:

Density- 1900kg/cubic metre

Compressive Strength – 4.2N/mm2
