African Thatches

Made to order, delivered and installed direct from the factory.

Essential information

Instantly create a stunning entertaining area for any size family or gathering.

Our beautiful, natural African Cape Reed roof tiles are very aesthetically pleasing and allow air to flow through them, which will keep your entertainment area cooler in summer (up to 10 degrees) and warmer in winter, unlike a metal or ceramic tile roof.

Built to last

Made of solid treated pine timber for strength and durability

Relax, whatever the weather

Our African Thatches are up to 10 degrees cooler in summer and 10 degrees warmer in winter thanks to its natural insulation

100% Waterproof

Our African Thatches are 100% waterproof. The 30 degree pitch roof ensures water slides right off your roof and away from your outdoor furniture or spa.
