Tahitian Thatch


Composed of the leaves of palm trees, Fuji or Palm thatch is the most sought after thatch type amongst Architect’s, Designer’s, hospitality and zoo’s to create an authentic environment. Considering the density and thickness of our Fiji thatch panels, they are ideal for structures such as umbrella’s and canopies without a subroof as water is less likely to permeate.
Fiji thatch performs best in dry, warm climates with a life span of 4-5 years. Easy to install, Fiji thatch panels are installed as simply as typical roof shingle.
