Lera - människans äldsta byggmaterial
Clay is considered as the world's oldest building material. For thousands of years, people have trusted in the good qualities of this high quality natural product. The Hock clay products are made of very rich clay, sand and sawdust from freshly cut wood. The raw materials become a robust building material by using only a low amount of energy and without chemical processes. The natural cycle is complete with the disposal. Hock clay products can be composted and recycled infinitely. Clay's high quality, robustness and the effect on health have been proven since primeval times. Clay, which had already been replaced by "modern" building materials, is today increasingly coming in building owners' field of vision. Its naturalness and good properties as a building material make clay in many respects superior to other materials.
Use in Old and New Buildings
ProCrea clay products are especially suitable for renovating old buildings and half-timbered houses. Clay can conserve half-timbered constructions naturally by absorbing water and thus not allowing wood to collect moisture. The Hock clay building panels are also increasingly used in modern interior finishings. It is suitable for facing formworks, planking of the interior walls as well as for covering ceilings and roofs. The sensible combination of natural building materials, respecting the installation instructions, protects the building owner against a depreciation of both new realties and when renovating old realties. By using natural and healthy materials it is possible to reach a quality standard which lastingly valorises the realty.
The Nature as a Supplier
Clay is a gift of the nature. It is mined in many locations in Germany and thus it is possible to avoid long transport routes. It conserves resources and can be used again and again. Only a low amount of energy is used for the production of building materials made of clay. Clay products are convenient to use and entirely free of pollutants.
Healthy Indoor Climate
Clay guarantees a healthy indoor climate with a relative humidity of 45 to 55%. It absorbs high quantities of water vapour and releases it when the surrounding air becomes too dry. Hock clay products are harmless to the health and create an especially pleasant indoor climate. For this reason, these natural building materials are used again increasingly. He who lays a great value on using environmentally compatible building materials cannot ignore clay. Hock clay products are a perfect complement to wood and the natural fibre insulation Thermo-Hemp.
It is of great importance to install all components professionally. Thus the classic product advantages of traditional raw materials can be combined with modern technology. Clay is here an ideal material for both the craftsman and the do-it-yourselfer. The Hock clay building panels are easy to lay, bore and screw. ProCrea clay plasters can be processed for a long period of time without any pressure of time because clay does not harden chemically but only reaches its final stability by drying.
