What Size Replacement Palapa Thatched Cover Should I Buy?

To Determine this, Simply:

Step 1. Measure your umbrella or frame from the top center tip to the outer edge.

Step 2. Multiply that figure by two, then add one foot (the added foot provides for the umbrella overhang).

Example: If the measurement from the top center peak (so you will be measuring half of a circle at a angle) is 4ft to the outer edge of the frame, times that by two which is 8ft then you would order a 9ft palapa umbrella top cover. This will give plenty of overhang around the umbrella edges.


A Brief History Lesson on Palapa Thatch Umbrellas

Made from Rustic Tropical Pinewood Poles!

There is a name for those beautiful tropical umbrellas that accent patio tables: palapas.

Also known as grass thatch umbrellas or grass umbrellas, palapa umbrellas are made from rustic tropical pinewood poles.

In their native lands, they are purely functional as shade structures. However, in suburban America, palapas are a popular way to add a tropical ambiance to nearly any outdoor living environment.


All About our Beautiful Palapa Thatch Umbrellas

Both Standard & Fire Retardant and So Many Sizes!

The Tiki Shack Importer carries both standard and fire retardant palapa umbrellas, available in numerous sizes, more sizes than any other company.

Generally speaking, our palapas have an excellent lifespan. In dry climates with little rainfall, these palapa umbrellas can last five to six years or more.

For those in moist climates and heavy rainfall areas also when using any thatch material on a closed or plywood roof it does affect the lifespan trapping the moisture. Creating a air space between the two layers will help. We highly recommend our thatch sealer; often, it can extend the life of palapa umbrellas by up to two years.

We also offer palapa umbrella covers, which make it easy to transform ordinary commercial style outdoor umbrellas into palapa umbrellas.

In Addition, to make your life easier, we also offer Easy Do it Yourself Palapa Kits. You can view all of these products on the "Palapa Kits" category page. Click Here to View it Now.

If you wish to make your own palapa umbrella, this can be done by using a palapa cover to hang over a pre-cut wood frame.

If you are using palapa umbrella covers on a collapsible market umbrella with a canvas material that folds down, you cannot collapse the umbrella while it is in the downward position. Doing this may tear the cover in the center. We don't recommend using them on this style because they will not last and don't always fit correctly All palapa umbrella pictures have two layers meaning you would need to covers to get that thickness.


Installing Palapa Umbrella Top Covers

Proper Installation is Key to a Long Life!

Unlike other umbrellas, a grass umbrella allows the wind to pass through it, which means less strain on the structure and a longer life for the product. However, proper installation is key.

To ensure your palapa umbrella will withstand the impact of strong winds, use nylon zip ties or staples when installing one of our palapa umbrella covers to wood framing.

Our palapa umbrella covers include a supply of nylon zip ties for this purpose. Make sure to pull the zip ties tight. Pliers works best. If not secured correctly your palapa covers will start to fall apart.
