and Ligna Stone sustainable building materials.
Ligna Stone (meaning “wooden” stone in Latin) is handcrafted using traditional block making methods, to create beautiful and timeless
masonry and concrete products.
What makes Ligna Stone truly unique is that it is made using a high percentage of timber waste. Utilising the next evolution of the award
winning Timbercrete matrix, the patented formula comprises a blend of timber waste, sand, cement and binders that produce a distinctive
product with many benefits over traditional clay or concrete bricks and blocks.
Low embodied energy
Manufactured using less energy as Ligna Stone is handcrafted and naturally cured.
Superior thermal insulation
Over double clay or concrete equivalents.
Utilises a high level of post-industrial waste
Comprises 50%-70% timber waste depending upon the product and application.
Operates as a carbon sink
The timber waste permanently locks up carbon dioxide for the life of the product.
Reduces energy costs
Higher thermal insulation reduces the need for heating and cooling.
Around half the weight of clay or concrete
Highly fire resistant
Blocks at 190mm wide have an FRL of 240/240/240, exceeding the highest possible fire
standards. 2015 winner of the Bushfire Building Council of Australia’s Building Product
Suitable for double brick, single leaf and retaining wall construction.
Robust and highly durable
Long lasting with less breakages and better able to absorb impacts. Impervious to
termites and rot.
Typically absorbs bullets rather than shatter.
