Hemclad Pre-cast Wall Systems
Combining Tradical® Hemcrete® and a timber cassette, Hemclad® provides a sustainable off-site produced thermal cladding system for commercial and industrial buildings.
Hemclad® utilizes the environmental credentials of Tradical® Hemcrete®to provide a cost effective and sustainable cladding panel system. It can hang on a steel or concrete structural frame, and has been designed to take wind loading and a number external cladding finishes as required.
Hemclad® offers a number of advantages over traditional composite panels:
- Reduced carbon emissions
- Stable internal temperatures
- Made from highly sustainable material – Tradical® Hemcrete® and natural fibre insulation
Recent studies have shown that up to 60% of whole life carbon in commercial buildings is actually embodied carbon within the fabric of the building. Simply by using Hemclad, this is massively reduced, compared to that of conventional construction, as its production process – using hemp gives the product negative embodied carbon.
Tradical® Hemcrete® helps to reduce the atmospheric concentration of CO2 by locking up harmful CO2 emissions within the material and in turn the wall construction. Hemp captures carbon dioxide during its rapid growth and releases oxygen back out to the atmosphere for superior environmental performance. By incorporating Tradical® Hemcrete®, the Hemclad® system also delivers a more stable and comfortable internal environment.
Offering superb insulation performance, Hemclad® provides a thermally efficient building envelope. Its unique combination of thermal inertia and insulation buffers changes in temperature to create a stable environment and greatly reduce energy usage. Supplied to site in cassettes to fit the size of the building, Hemclad® provides a healthy, hassle free cladding system, finished with either eco-friendly lime renders or rain-screen cladding.
