Straw Bale Firetest 2012 on iBMB Braunschweig

Written by esba

A firetest on a straw bale wall with 6cm limeplaster (graefix 73 pajalith).

The test was made 2012 on iBMB Braunschweig.
The fire test for the 6cm plaster was successful so the plaster (the straw bale-modules with plaster) may be installed on 5 story straw bale buildings – as in this example on the “Norddeutsches Zentrum für Nachhaltiges Bauen” (North German Centre for Sustainable Construction (NZNB))!
