Fibre Palm – Artificial Palm Leaf

Artificial Palm Leaf Roofing

Artificial palm leaf, also known as Fibre Palm is an artificial thatch product which imitates palm leaves and has a tropical island aesthetic. It is manufactured into tiles, and boasts maximum life expectancy with minimal maintenance.


fibre palm Theming

Fibre Palm was developed as a realistic, long-lasting artificial palm leaf thatch replacement for natural leaf thatch mediums such as cape reed. It is available in two formats, Bali and Makuti, both of which are synthetic imitations of the types of thatch commonly found in the Pacific Ocean, Caribbean and African Tropics areas.

Fibre Palm tiles offer exceptional covering at 3 tiles per square metre. Although originally intended to be installed on top of a sub roof, such as waterproofed plywood or corrugated metal sheet roofing, it is also possible to install Fibre Palm tiles on gazebos, tiki bars and umbrella frames without a sub roof by fitting the Fiber Roofing clip system to the tiles. The tiles simply clip onto 8mm diameter rods in the usual overlay pattern spaced at 400mm. The tiles can also be stapled or nail onto wood roof battens. Fibre Palm tiles installed without a sub roof will provide a 98% waterproof roof covering.
