VIROREED is a synthetic thatch made from HDPE. It is a 100% recyclable material that is maintenance free. Will not rot, mold or shed! The synthetic material resists termites, birds and insects that are the common cause of break down and failure of natural products. ViroReed thatch is sought after among Architect’s, Designer’s, hospitality and zoo’s to create an authentic environment and natural appearance. This 100% waterproof and weather proof material is ideal for structures such as umbrella’s and canopies without a sub roof as water is less likely to permeate.

Easy to install, ViroReed thatch panels are installed as simply as typical roof shingle.
