Why Should I Make My Thatch Fire Retardant?

Just like any other part of your business, you want to make your thatch items and decor as safe as possible. As the name implies, fire retardant reduces the chance and impact of fire by converting combustible gases into non-combustible gases. When exposed to flame, thatch treated with fire rated coating reduces smoke by over 50%, lowering the likelihood of inhalation.

As well as protecting your thatching from fire, fire retardant sealant defends it from pests and bacteria that can degrade its quality. The treated thatch also becomes resistant to certain molds and fungi. You can rest easy knowing you've made a substantial investment in preserving the integrity of your thatching.

Is Thatch Sealant Safe for the Environment?

While some treatments and coatings have solvents and chemicals that can hurt you and the environment, you don't have to worry when you use our thatch protectant. It uses water as a base, making it non-toxic and non-volatile. Thatch is already sustainable and eco-friendly, and you can lower its impact on the Earth further by making it last longer with a fire retardant coating. Durable thatch reduces the need for replacement, saving valuable natural resources.

How to Make Your Thatch Fire Rated

All you need to do before applying fire retardant coating is make sure your thatch is clean and dry. If you use it on brand-new thatching, you can skip this step. You don't need to get any special cutting tools or fasteners to protect your thatch — just a sprayer, brush or roller.

The coating works like paint or primer — apply three coats in its undiluted form to get the most protection. If you want to color your thatching, use the sealant as a primer under paints and water-based stains.

Fire rated thatch coating can protect:

  • Roofs
  • Tiki huts and bars
  • Umbrellas
  • Gazebos
  • Palapa structures
  • Other natural materials like bamboo
