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.
