At Sisaltech, our roots intertwine with a commitment to fostering a low-carbon future through sustainable building insulation. What began as a fervent belief in creating a better world has blossomed into a small yet passionate company dedicated to revolutionizing the construction industry.

  • Our Vision

    Energising Buildings, Sustaining the Planet. We envision buildings that echo energy efficiency, crafted from sustainable, low-carbon materials—a vision driving our every endeavour.

  • Our Mission

    Crafting Innovation for a Greener Tomorrow Our mission fuels innovation. We design pioneering, technical insulation solutions using natural fibres to facilitate an effortless transition to low-carbon building materials, offering enhanced safety and comfort to installers.

  • Our Purpose

    Tackling the Climate Emergency Our purpose is clear—to confront the climate emergency head-on, forging a path towards a sustainable future through our contributions in the construction realm.

  • The Genesis

    Unearthing Sisal's Potential In the late 2000s, John Ferguson embarked on a journey to educate small-scale farmers in East Africa on climate change mitigation. This endeavor led him to the remarkable sisal plant—a drought-resistant fibre crop with a forgotten legacy in construction. The possibilities inherent in sisal inspired us to innovate.

  • From Inspiration to Innovation

    Our trajectory soared from inspiration to innovation. Through meticulous craftsmanship, we've crafted one of the market's lowest carbon, highest-quality sustainable thermal insulation products. Why sisal? It's a game-changer—a highly sustainable fiber source, easy to grow organically, dried naturally under the African sun, offering a new frontier for insulation materials.

  • Blending Innovation

    Sisal and Wool The synergy between sisal and wool births our pinnacle product—Sisalwool. Blending the incredible benefits of natural fibres with sisal, we've created a product boasting superior structural qualities, redefining insulation excellence.
