Why Fiber Thatch?

Cape Thatch Reed


Climatic conditions forced the owners to re-thatch every 5 years. Now a 20-year warranty with a life expectancy of more than 50 years!

Waterproof Top Cone

Totally maintenance free compared to a natural thatch roof that needs regular cost intensive maintenance. The Makuti roofs in the background were done the same time 7 years ago and already needs to be re-done.

Cape Reed


PVC and Polyolefin FR Fiber Thatch have fire ratings compared to natural thatch that involves a
high risk of fires.

Before and After

Thatch Tiles Umbrella

BEFORE
Beautiful pool – An ugly Thatch……and the roof was not that old. Pool cleaning was a nightmare.




AFTER
Beautiful pool – A beautiful thatch. No roof maintenance and to keep the pool pristine clean is now a pleasure.




Hurricanes and Storm Damage

Tropical thatch tiles

Storm netting was required to keep the thatch in place and still the roof had to be replaced 3 times in 15 years. Also note the fungi
growth on the thatch



The same roof but after replacement no storm netting, no maintenance and the photo was taken
5 years later!!



Any Colour is Possible

Grated Thatch Tiles


The architect of Hanover Zoo in Germany wanted to make a statement ...and he succeeded.



grated or brushed thatch tiles


Application is so easy. A sub roof, a flexible eave that screw in position and then the rubber re-enforced tiles that staple or screw down. Tiles can be fitted on any type of roof.



No Colour Change or Rotting of Material.

Thatch Roofs

The photo of the roof seems as if it has been taken the day after the roof has been completed while the Fiber roof has actually been done more than 5 years ago.

Combination Fiber/Reed tile

A tropical look instead of the thick eave wad finish is possible by simply letting the Fiber particles
droop over the edge
.

Combination Fiber/Reed tile

The rubber backed eave and tile sections allow that any shape or contour can be thatched. Tiles simply fold into valleys or around hips.
