Thatch Options – Range of Thatch Tiles and Top Cones
(We offer 5 times as many options comapred to any other manufacturer in the world)
The Tiles are manufactured
from Cape Thatch Reed
The tiles measure
800mm(32”) x 0mm(18”) x 25mm(1”)
“Waterproof” Top Cone. The Reed is hand packed in a jig and then the reed particles are glued
together with Polyurethane.
Cape Reed changes color within one year from gold/yellow to the grey as shown in the photo.
Tile with a clip. 6 Clips are stapled onto the rubber strip per tile. Tiles can be clipped onto 8mm (1/4”) rods or nailed/stapled onto timber battens
Clipped on "tiles” and a “Half" Top Cone used on the top end of
an oval steel frame.
The re-enforced Polyurethane (rubber) strip allows the tiles to follow any contour or shape. Tiles can be nailed onto battens.
The “Large Tile” is mostly used on a 2m (6’6”) Umbrella, favored by beach owners on the Mediterranean beaches
A 2.2m (6’6”) Large Tile umbrella beside a pool can supply the shade you need and will improve the
value of your property.
Tropical tiles are made using the flower or seed part of the reed.
A tropical finish is obtained.
The tile measures:
800mm(32”) x 750mm(30”)
Tropical tiles are often used to extend the roof edge or to create
a unique finish.
Top Cone diameter is 1000mm (40”)
2m (6’6”) Umbrellas with the bottom tile a tropical tile measuring 2.5m (8’4”) and provides much more shade.
Cape reed material, but notice the difference the Tropical Tiles make. Tropical tiles will also age better.
A large gazebo covered with
“Grated Thatch Tiles”. The tiles are brushed (combed) during the manufacturing process to provide
a smooth finish similar
to custom thatch.
With the grated or brushed (combed) finish only the tips of the Reed are exposed. The tile measures 800mm(32”) x 575mm(23”) 25mm(1”)
Structures completed more than 5 years ago in Qatar. The roofs will be good for another 15 years while in the same climatic conditions Cape Reed tiles will have to be replaced
after 5 to 6 years.
A Combination Fiber/Reed tile has a layer of Polyolefin fitted on top of the Reed to protect the reed underneath. Tile sizes are the same than normal reed tiles. Top Cone sizes also the same.
A demo by Zameka and Golden on the “Waterproof System”. The system allow for two tiles that attach with special clips with a waterproof membrane in between.
Zameka, demonstrating how the tiles should be clipped on. Tile sizes stay the same except that the two tiles are only 12.5mm (1/2”) thick. Combined the thickness is 25mm (1”), the same than all the tiles.
A real tropical look is achieved with this Combination of Cape reed and Grated Fiber Tiles. The Fiber tile protects the Cape Reed tile and extends the lifespan
four times longer.
Look at the effect achieved with this Combination of Reed and Grated Fiber Tiles. A 10 year warranty because the Fiber protects the natural reed. The Reed provides the thermal insulation.
For all 90 degree corners a special corner tile is required.
The corner tiles measure
450mm (18”) x 450mm (18”)
Without using corner tiles these square umbrellas would simply not have been possible.
