Rammed Earth Finishes are pure, raw clay plaster wall finishes that can be used to create seamless and beautiful re-imaginations of one of the world’s most ancient of building techniques.

Made, like the real thing, from natural clays, minerals and sands, this surface material is able to achieve the authenticity and feel of monolithic rammed earth. With a depth of around 10mm it also contributes to the performance of the building fabric: softened acoustics and thermal variations, moisture control and breathability.

Rammed Earth Finishes can be created in endless possibilities of colours and textures, often in response to a desire by architects and designers to replicate local geological conditions or to evoke cultural connections with vernacular architecture.
