Testing of Earth blocks

ZRS Architekten Ingenieure

In the ZRS Ingenieure laboratory, load-bearing and non-load-bearing earth blocks are tested in the form of initial testing or quality monitoring. Initial testing follows internal or external recipe development. As part of quality monitoring, we carry out regular production control of manufacturers.

The earth blocks are tested and assessed in accordance with DIN 18945:2024-03.
