Our African Reed Thatch Panels measure 31 inches in width and 18 inches in height. These panels are eco-friendly and carefully constructed from the highest quality cape reed available on the market. The tropical color blend of yellows, browns, and greens gives a natural look that will complement any décor scheme perfectly.
African cape reed can last between 8 and 10 years depending on climate conditions and treatment. Reed is a natural product, and thatch roofing will allow heat and moisture to escape upward and ventilate your building structure. The high insulation quality provides cooler air to flow through the reed in the summer and retain heat during the winter. Typically, African reed thatch tends to keep building structures 10 degrees cooler or warmer depending on the season. Alternative roofing materials do not have the insulation value that natural thatch does.
African reed thatch is most commonly used as a roofing material to cover umbrellas, tiki huts, gazebos, and more. Need help with your project? Call our expert and friendly staff members for calculations and suggestions on how you can best complete your project.
Bamboo is a natural material. Each piece is unique and will vary slightly in appearance. Color variations occasionally occur in bamboo, however, this is a natural characteristic and not a product defect.
Poles will always taper naturally, so all diameters are approximate, industry standard averages.
We NEVER ship cracked product, but bamboo is subject to cracking and splitting just like any other wood product. Bamboo can develop cracks in transit due to changes in weather and climate. Some poles have pre-drilled holes to prevent cracking. This does not affect the integrity of the bamboo.
We cannot guarantee consistency with any of our bamboo products, but we try our best to offer the highest quality bamboo currently available on the market.
Bamboo poles and products are not returnable or exchangeable, and are considered final sales.
Maintenance: We recommend Cabot Australian Timber Oil for all exterior uses on bamboo products.
I just overhauled my backyard to a tropical jungle look!
The African thatch is great. Thanks for the free shipping! (Posted on 11/14/2012)
