Sustainability and POROTHERM
Made from Natural clay, POROTHERM products provide a healthy and comfortable living environment with a complete absence of pollutants and without sacrificing thermal efficiency. With a breathable structure that facilitates climate control, they create healthier living conditions. With high thermal mass and accumulation properties, POROTHERM evens out temperature variations through thermal capacity effects, to protect against cold in winter and ensure a comfortable and healthy room in summer. In addition, their low moisture retention and fast drying properties optimise thermal protection, whilst gradual release of stored passive solar energy reduces heating & cooling costs.
Offering outstanding ecological balance, POROTHERM products are made to minimise environmental impact both in manufacture and assembly. They are made from natural clay, and often include coal ash and sawdust which burn out during the manufacturing process. And with a life expectancy anticipated to be over 150 years, POROTHERM offers the ultimate in high performance, sustainable construction.
