African thatch is a natural product. Natural thatch is unique. It heats and cools conversely. An example of this is our African Cape Reed Thatch. The breathing quality of the cape reed tilling makes sure that it keeps a daytime temperature that is lower than other products during the summer months. This thatch doesn’t let much air pass through. You can wet a thatch roof to lower the temperature. This has an evaporating cooling effect. The product is very sturdy. Many countries use this product because of its durability against cyclonic winds and storms.
African thatch is used for roofing. The timber walls and roof are pre-constructed. They can be attached together. Cottages, gazebos, lapas, and umbrellas of various sizes can be created as well. Decorative panels, doors, and windows can be added to gazebos for different applications.
