For a country that is far from being associated with palm leaves, it is amazing that Palmex, a tropical roofing solution originated in Canada.
Years ago, a chance meeting between two gentlemen led to the creation of luxury synthetic thatch and Palmex. David Reveret had just moved to Canada from Tahiti and missed the beautiful palm roofs of the island. Being aware of the inconveniences of natural thatch, he was looking to create an alternative, when he met Plastics expert, Richard Maillé. Together, they created several prototypes before selling their first production of synthetic thatch roofing in 2007.
Palmex International now exports its synthetic thatch roofs to over 63 countries across five continents and is the world leader in high quality, durable, synthetic roof solutions for hotels, resorts, zoos, amusement parks, universities and landscaping projects.
This unique artificial thatch roofing solution finally found its way to India, exclusively distributed by Arsha Consulting under the brand Palmex India.
The Palmex India team is based in Bangalore and provides end-to-end services across the country, ensuring that the highest standards of quality are maintained. The Palmex India team can also provide installation services and has been trained by the Canadian manufacturer on the patented installation techniques that guarantee a 100% waterproof roof. No matter the size or shape of your roof, we can work with you to ensure a smooth installation process.
Since 2016, the Palmex India team has worked with resort-owners, architects and contractors to install Palmex roofs all over the country, from Delhi to Kolkata to Kerala. Here are a few photos of the projects that we have done so far:
