Synthetic thatch roofing in all its beauty!

Welcome to our online tour of the Palmex synthetic thatch roofing gallery. For more than a decade, our thatching material has been used to complete a wide variety of projects including commercial, private and recreational buildings or structures. We have chosen a representative sample of our achievements to give you an overview of the potential and versatility of artificial thatch. The beauty of these thatched roofs naturally speaks for itself, though their longevity, resistance, convenience and cost-effectiveness may be considered even more convincing. Best of all, they provide you with a comforting sense of  peace, for having contributed to the protection of plant species used for natural roof thatching and to that of our natural environment at large. Consequently, their owners have every reason to feel deeply proud and satisfied with their choice.

Best of Palmex palm roof thatching accomplishments

To appreciate the true value of a thatched roof, one needs to consider it in its natural environment. Notice how gently it blends in with any surrounding vegetation or landscape and the sense of harmony it creates. Look how different artificial palm leaves allow for completely different impressions and styles. Then, all that is left to do, is to close our eyes and picture ourselves right there, under these thatched roofs.

The exceptional and unique adaptability of synthetic thatch roofing material allows it to lend itself to an infinite variety of roof designs and shapes. Admire . . .

Every single one of these thatch roof constructions bears its unique personality and that of its creator, yet all appear naturally stunning, do they not? Synthetic thatch roofing involves no unsightly contrast with their background, no blunt angles and no boring contours; merely heart-warming harmony and eye pleasing tranquility.

  • “I am in the hospitality business, with our flagship property in one of the most beautiful locations at The Andamans. We are blessed with crystal clear waters, endless sands and unspoiled beaches that lure luxury travelers from different parts of the world. At Bigtree Hospitality, we are committed to showcasing this natural beauty by using the right materials, so the overall organic, earthy, green look and feel is kept intact. We want to provide our guests an opportunity to commune with nature, and feel connected without compromising on luxury, so they feel pampered.

    While building a resort in Chidiya Tapu, we planned on a bamboo-themed restaurant by using bamboo rafters. We were particular that the property has an intimate, natural aesthetic inspired by tropical Balinese architecture. This is why we chose Palmex, for its earthy, vernacular look. Palmex mimics the woven appeal of natural thatch but eliminates all the pain points of using palm or coconut leaves. We were a little concerned if Palmex would hold up well during the heavy monsoons, in the Andamans. But we are happy to report that not a single drop of water has gotten through the roof, since installation, even with heavy rainfall.

    I would recommend Palmex as a vendor to other hospitality businesses. Procurement of the material and installation, even to a remote location like Chidiya Tapu was a breeze. If you want to recreate the magical appeal of natural thatched roofs, with a high-quality, durable artificial eco-friendly material and want professional, courteous, timely service – don’t look beyond Palmex!” Sumer Verma, Managing Director, Bigtree Hospitality”

  • “Palmex leaves give a natural look to the treehouse, with its original colour and design. Our guests look forward to a stay in a treehouse with modern amenities, but with the charm of a thatched roof. ” Sachin K Jose, General Manager, Greenberg Resorts

  • “The product looked better than I expected… People who live around are dropping in just to see the roof! The Palmex team oversaw the installation with a lot of commitment and this was very impressive.” Yashwant Bhelke, Architect
