SMET NHL 3.5 & NHL 5 binders were specially selected for the restoration of the dramatic Narrow Water Castle in Warrenpoint, Co Down. As part of the ongoing restoration, the castle parapets were structurally restyled and restored using high-quality pure Natural Hydraulic Lime binders: SMET NHL 5 & SMET NHL 3.5. The selective hydraulic strength development of NHL binders makes them particularly suitable for producing lime mortars for masonry work, rendering, and plastering on historical buildings and monuments. NHL binders, available directly from SMET and distribution partner Haldane Fisher, are particularly suited for ecological new builds, conservation, restoration, and preservation works. The products’ special composition allows mortars to breathe and permits constant hygrometric exchange between the substrate and the environment. Narrow Water Castle restoration is another showcase of sympathetic historic building restoration, using top-quality NHL products available from SMET. The comprehensive range of NHL restoration and preservation products, combined with exceptional technical support and aftercare, are key drivers in the selection of SMET natural conservation products.
