African thatch reed panels measure 31 inch wide by 18 inch height. Our reed panels are made from 100% natural harvested cape reed from South Africa. African Cape Reed Thatch is a totally natural and environmentally friendly product.
African Cape Reed Thatch offers years of natural beauty. The thatch can last from 8 to 10 years depending on the climate before it needs to be replaced. Being a natural product, a Cape Reed Thatch roof will allow any trapped heat or moisture to escape due to its ability to breathe. The high insulation value provides the coolest shade in summer and retains the heat in winter. African cape reed thatch is typically 10 degrees cooler than alternative roofing materials in the summer and 10 degrees warmer in the winter.
Easy to install, we recommend our reed thatch panels to be used for open rafters and sub-surfaces. African cape reed thatch is primarily recognized for its beautiful and rustic blends of yellow, brown, and green colors.
