Tahitian thatch (also known as Fiji thatch or elephant grass) is a great material for thatching roofs or umbrella-style covers on tiki structures.
The Tiki Shack Importer offers Tahitian thatch in your choice of thatch panels or thatched top cones for thatch umbrellas, as shown below.
About our Tahitian Thatch
Made from the leaves of a hearty coco palm tree, our Tahitian thatch panels are extremely durable in very harsh weather conditions, with an average lifespan of 11-16 years on open air roofs and dry climate.
These easy-to-install thatch panels for roofs and top cones for thatched umbrella roofs give instant island charm to any roofing structure.
How to Use our Tahitian Thatch
Though widely used on tropical tiki style bars, these Fiji thatch panels are also great for covering existing roofs on larger structures.
These elephant grass reed shingles can be used outdoors on top of existing roofs to create a natural thatched roof appearance, and are easy to install (installing a thatched roof border is as easy as stapling with a staple gun.
Alternatively, our Fiji thatch can be used on wood or steel frames for such as umbrellas, to create a tropical thatch umbrella that is 90% waterproof and will resist high wind loads (especially when coated with our thatch sealer).
Tahitian Thatch in Moist/Humid Climates
We especially recommend our thatch sealer for Tahitian thatch that will be used in a moist or humid climate. Though our Tahitian thatch is extremely durable, thatch sealer can often add up to two years to the life of your thatched roof.
Additionally, we also offer Mexican thatch, which looks similar and is also an outstanding thatched roof material.Order your Tahitian Thatch Online Today!
