Tropical thatch

Tropical thatch

Our Tropical thatch tiles are manufactured from Cape thatching reed – a totally natural, environmentally friendly product. The thatching reed is harvested from a replenishable, renewable source, and harvesting promotes growth.

Tropical thatch looks different to our Cape Reed thatch product as the tiles are made using the flower or seed part of the reed, giving a natural, rustic look. Fabricated into tiles, Tropical thatch is an excellent method of creating a thatched roof without the cost and time associated with a traditional thatched roof.

The thatch tiles were designed around a Do-It-Yourself concept and can be clipped onto an 8mm diameter steel rod, rope or nailed onto a wooden batten, making construction a simple procedure. They are ideal for theming existing structures and create an entirely new look to your outside space. The thatch tiles can even be used indoors to create a thatched bar area.
