At Long Life Structures one of our main driving factors is occupational health.  For this reason we only use natural insulations on all of our builds such as wood-fiber, cellulose, sheeps wool and hemp.  Not only do they help to reduce our carbon footprint, but they also contribute to a superior indoor air quality as they don’t contain any Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC’s).  Another benefit of these types of insulations is that they have a very high Heat Storage Capacity (HSC) which helps to regulate heat and humidity in the building, leading to a greater thermal comfort for the occupant.  Most importantly, because these materials are diffusion open they eliminate any risk of interstitial condensation and mould growth in the building fabric.
