Thatch can be a combination of vegetation, including straw, water reeds, grass and palm branches. Thatch can be beautiful roofing and act as a layer of insulation for structures. This type of roofing is popular in many commercial industries such as spas, zoos, resorts, cabanas and restaurants because it creates an elegant and tropical atmosphere that is fun, relaxing and authentic.
Although gorgeous and scenic, natural thatch is susceptible to fire that can spread quickly due to its dry construction. To keep your visitors, animals and business safe from fires, invest in fire-rated thatch that will reduce the chance of fires.
