African Reed Thatch

African Reed Thatch is constructed from 100% cape reed that is uniform in appearance and perfect for roofing. Reed is a naturally sturdy material that lays flat and does not diffuse outward like our Mexican thatch products. This product is great for commercial use and is able to withstand various climate conditions. Our African reed thatch has been used in resorts and theme parks around the world. Not only is African reed versatile, it also has great insulation qualities. At Forever Bamboo, we offer only the highest quality thatch products to our customers.

About African Reed Thatch

African reed has been used for centuries as roofing material for building structures of all kinds. Each one of our African reed panels are constructed from cape reed; our sturdiest natural thatch product. The tropical color combination of browns, yellows, and greens, makes for a popular product that can be used in all types of environments. Our panels are specially designed to withstand warm and cool weather climates and act as a great insulator. African reed thatch is most commonly used as a roofing material to cover umbrellas, tiki huts, gazebos, and more. Enhance any indoor or outdoor space with our eco-friendly African reed thatch that has a lifespan of 8-10 years depending on climate conditions and treatment.

Cape reed is naturally flexible and can be used to cover flat, curved, or circular shapes. If you are looking for a more unique type of thatch, African reed is the product for you.

Environmentally Friendly

African reed thatch is a natural product that is resistant to damage from mold and unwanted pests. With the increased awareness in eco-friendliness, we have made sure to provide our customers with the highest-quality, eco-friendly products on the market. The reed used for our panels and cones is a renewable resource that is naturally sturdy and durable. Unlike other traditional forms of thatch, reed will not shed or rot. Another benefit of using reed thatching is the low maintenance that is required to keep the thatch in good condition. Our thatch is easy to install and can withstand many different climate changes.

Quality Control

Quality is a very important factor when it comes to providing our customers with the best products available on the market. We have a very specific quality control program in which we inspect all thatch products before placing them in our inventory. Thatch that does not meet our high quality standards is not selected or sold by our company. Our exclusive supplier also rejects any damaged thatch products before sending it to us for further inspection.

Weather Resistant

Our African reed products are highly resistant to harsh weather conditions and provide great insulation during the summer and winter seasons. With the proper maintenance and care, African reed thatch can last between 8 and 10 years. During hot summer days, heat escapes in an upward motion through the layers of reed consistently keeping your building structure cool. Compared to non-breathable roofing material such as tile, tin, and polycarbonate, thatch roofing provides comfortable circulation and insulation.

Thatch Umbrellas

If you are planning on building an umbrella with our thatch panels, use our 31 inch top cone cover for the perfect finishing touch. Each top cone cover is woven from the same high quality thatch that is used to make our panels. This item will complement and fit any shaped roof for a complete and professional look. If properly taken care of, African reed top cone covers can last between 5 and 8 years. A large brown node has been added to the tip of the cone to ensure maximum durability and longevity.
