Details: Height: 30" ( 3 ft including the fringe). Width: 57 feet. It is carefully hand woven out of Palm Leaf Thatch (known as Rain Cape thatch)
Thatch panels are easy to use (just cut it in desired lenghts with a pair of scissors) and great for a tropical decor theme, or to create an Hawaiian inspired home. An easy way to change the look of a room and to bring some island style to your patio or pool bar. TRANSFORM your tiki bar or luau into a TROPICAL PARADISE!
Thatch panels and rolls are constructed by taking natural palm leaves, making them into strips and then curing them. They are then woven into what we call thatch to make a number of different products like panels or rolls.
Determining How Much Thatch
If using the 30" x 60 ft rolls, a good rule of thumb, although not exact, is to take the total square footage to be covered and double it (for a double layer of thatch). Each roll measures about 114 square feet (excluding the fringe), so divide the total by 114 and then add 10 or 15% for overlapping and overhang. The result is the approximate number of rolls needed for your project.
Cutting the Thatch
Thatch rolls and panels can be cut to fit any size and shape tiki hut or bar. Our thatch are hand woven with a knot and weave pattern, this allows you to cut the thatch, horizontal, vertical or diagonal without unraveling the final product. If you need to trim off any excess overhang, this should be done from the knotted side. Determine the amount to cut and follow a uniform or straight line along the knotted pattern. This will render a finished and layered look from the outside (unknotted side).
Attaching the Thatch
There are several ways to attach the thatch to the roof. The preferred method should be done with a staple gun and galvanized staples. Depending
on the sub roof, meaning the thickness of plywood the recommended staples should be 1/2” to 3/4”. If your structure is seasonal, and you
plan on removing the top for winter storage, zip lock ties are the best alternative for attachment. This, will allow you to remove the thatch with
little to no damage to the material.

According to archeologists, the tiki gods were a symbol of power, both religious and political to the Polynesian Islands. For centuries, tiki statues have been a form of communication across all cultures. They replicate human nature and depict a part of what we all are. In Polynesian culture it is believed that the tiki god was within the spirit of the statue. Whether statues have hypnotic powers that can protect us from the world of the spirits is intriguing... they certainly have a very dramatic presence.
