moladi is a local manufacturer (Port Elizabeth, South Africa) and global supplier of a fast track,patented building system that offers: -
An affordable technique to effectively build durable low cost houses, earthquake, cyclone resistant shelter, whilst maintaining acceptable design aesthetics for social acceptability amongst a wide range of cultures
An alternative way to enable and empower sections of society by providing a building technology that encourages self participation
A cost effective, holistic design and build technology, that far outweighs many of today's retrofit schemes designed to strengthen existing poorly designed structures by demonstrating the use of moladi as opposed to costly solid concrete-block or masonry structures
A realistic modern alternative to overcoming the widespread misuse of scarce materials, particularly timber, by introducing a system that combines moladi with other indigenous materials suitable for easy handling. This product is commercialized in Africa,South America, Middle East. Want to implement moladi in your country?You are welcome to visit our website at
