Black Mountain Natural Insulation

Black Mountain Natural Insulation is located in the United Kingdom with a manufacturing facility dedicated to producing Natural Insulations. Both our sheep’s wool insulation and hemp insulation are produced in-house, reducing lead times, minimising cost and providing the flexibility to produce bespoke orders for larger projects. We are therefore able to provide our customers with the guarantee of high quality products at the most competitive prices.

The sheep’s wool and hemp fibres used in production are by-products of other industries and the minimal binder we use contains recycled material. Although many companies claim their products reduce energy consumption and improve thermal efficiency, this is true for all insulation products and is a poor means of differentiation.

Not only does Black Mountain use up to 90% less embodied energy in comparison to many man-made insulation products, the wool and hemp fibres used in our products permanently absorb significant quantities of carbon dioxide during their growth cycle. Therefore natural fibre insulations are ‘carbon negative’ – locking up a substantially higher level of carbon than used during their manufacture.

Whilst natural insulation products, such as sheep’s wool insulation and hemp insulation have an extended life span in comparison to many man-made alternatives, they can still be composted or recycled at the end of their life span. Landfill sites are not a sustainable option for truly sus
