A structural block of clay rich earth and chopped straw, Strocks can be used for internal and external load bearing walls typically up to 3 storeys.
Strocks used together with Warmshell external wall insulation creates a natural and low embodied energy external walling system. See our building systems page.
Strocks are bedded in our thin bed clay mortar from the same clay as the blocks creating a homogenous earth wall.
