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. Make sure the lowest part of your umbrella frame (outer ring) is no less that 7.6 feet from the ground or the grass overhang may be to low and may touch your head when walking underneath, then trimming may be required.


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 thatched 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 thatched umbrella, available in numerous sizes, more sizes than any other company.

Generally speaking, our palapa thatched umbrella has an excellent lifespan. In dry climates with little rainfall, these palapa umbrellas can last five to seven 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. All palapa umbrella pictures have two layers meaning you would need two covers to get that thickness.

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


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. These are designed for a permanent install not recommended for removing and installing every season.

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. Use all zip ties that we supplied to you and use them everywhere even in the center. If not secured correctly your palapa covers will start to fall apart usually in the center first it will create a hole and then get bigger and bigger causing it to tear everywhere else. This is typical of a bad installation.


How to Install Palapa Umbrella Thatch Replacement Top Covers

When you are ready to install the palapa cover remove plastic and all strings that hold palapa cover except for the one at the widest end. Climb ladder and set the pointed end of the palapa cover in the dead center of your structure, very important that it is center before cutting the last string. Once centered cut the last string and start unfolding the palapa cover till you have a half of a circle. Now take a push broom and go under one layer and gently push the palapa cover to the other side. Now go around the outer edges and get all of the ripples out and attach all the nylon zip ties everywhere that we supplied you. Make sure to pull all zip ties tight with a pair of pliers and cut excess off.

PALAPA THATCH UMBRELLAS - TIKI TROPICAL UMBRELLAS

The definition of Palapa is a traditional Mexican shelter roofed with palm leaves or branches. It is a Spanish word of Mayan origin meaning pulpous leaf and refers to an open-sided dwelling with a thatched roof made of dried palm leaves. With its unique design to help airflow, it is widely desired in tropical resorts where temperatures are particularly high. A structure such as a bar or restaurant in a resort area is generally referred to as a Palapa. Another structure to be referred to as Palapa would be a thatch umbrella, open sided with a thatched cover. They are also popular with backyard enthusiasts to create a tropical paradise with a thatch roof Tiki bar and a Palapa thatch umbrella.

Because of their natural look, both bamboo and Palapa umbrellas create a relaxing environment and a tropical décor. Both Palapa and bamboo are plants, used in the creation of many items such as fencing, chairs, dividers and countless other items. Palapa styles can be woven palm leaf, African reed, or synthetic palm or reed. In their native land, Palapa thatch umbrellas are purely functioned as sitting under the thatch lowers the temperature by about 10 degrees as the thatch breathes, which makes it a welcome addition to your own island retreat. As a multi-functional item, it can be used inside or outside. It comes in various sizes and styles, and these umbrellas can be placed into virtually any setting and bonded with grass, wood, or cement and be totally functional. Different styles include the Tahitian round umbrella totally covered by thatch with a shaggy appearance fitting with a forest décor; like the Tahitian, the Mexican style also features a shaggy look and is known for its durability to withstand rain. Modern, contemporary styles call for the African style with materials from mostly African areas. For ease of maintenance, opting for the artificial thatch is an option.

OPTIONS FOR PALAPA THATCHED UMBRELLAS
Palapa umbrellas come in standard or treated with a fire retardant to provide a higher level of safety. They also come in a variety of sizes and have an excellent lifespan. The grass thatched, or grass umbrellas are made with natural pinewood poles.

You can order the collapsible bamboo thatch umbrellas in sizes of 5ft. 7ft. and, 9ft, in standard form or fire retardant. Palapa and bamboo umbrellas are low maintenance and made from 100% natural materials. When deciding what size thatch umbrella to use, consider the area where it is going to be used, is it a small patio table or a larger area that needs to be shaded and take into consideration the size of your yard. It should be tasteful and flatter your island theme.

The bamboo thatch umbrella is made with a thick bamboo pole and real seagrass made to be portable. It has a two-piece pole that can be unscrewed for storage or, depending on your climate, can be left up year round. It features the best commercial grade quality thatch that you can buy.
