Africa Roofing supply both natural and synthetic materials for thatched buildings and structures.
Cape Reed is a completely natural, environmentally friendly South African thatch. If you require an artificial thatch material, we offer Fibre Thatch and Fibre Palm as options, plus combination thatch – a hybrid product which combines natural Cape Reed with a top layer of artificial thatch.
Natural Cape Reed
South African Cape Reed thatch is a totally natural product, which combines simplicity of use with a beautiful appearance. The thatching reed is harvested from a replenishable, renewable source, and harvesting actually promotes growth.
The thatch is pre-fabricated into tiles that can be easily clipped on to a metal frame or rope or attached to a wooden batten.Find out more
Synthetic thatch material
We have a number of artificial thatch options available, all of which have the appearance of their natural equivalents but with other advantages including increased longevity and durability, and decreased maintenance requirements.
