Black Mountain Hemp insulation is a general purpose natural fibre insulation product.

Manufactured from a blend of hemp and other natural fibres. Black Mountain Hemp has

exceptional insulation properties due to a combination of low thermal conductivity and high thermal mass – reducing internal temperature fluctuations and enhancing thermal comfort. Due to the strength of the fibre the product has good resistance to compression and is a semi rigid structure which resists slumping and compaction. Black Mountain Hemp has been designed to match and surpass the Part L Building Standards with reference to Thermal, Fire, Mould Resistance and Structural performance. Hemp fibres are one of the strongest natural fibres available, the durability and moisture control properties of hemp insulation allows for a higher level of performance and longevity – retaining its insulating properties for the life of the building. Hemp is not attacked by vermin or other pests. The Hemp fibre selected by Black Mountain is grown without the use of pesticides or herbicides. It does not require forced irrigation in its cultivation and yields a significant tonnage of fibre per acre.
