Why synthetic thatch is the perfect solution for the hotel industry


Today, hotels and resorts have become travel destinations themselves, and guests look forward to enjoying experiences of a lifetime while on a vacation, both inside and outside the property.  In order to stand out in this highly competitive industry, hoteliers must provide an extraordinary experience as well as ensure the safety and comfort of their guests. But no comprehensive approach to this would be complete without considering roofing, an essential element, protecting a critical asset that must deliver brand value and a solid return on investment, day in and day out, year after year.  Hoteliers should always be confident that their roofs will look good and be safe no matter what Mother Nature throws at them.

Hotels and resorts throughout the world are discovering problems with the continued use of natural thatch roofing material. A recent increase in thatch roof fires has caused the hospitality industry to examine its use of natural thatch roofing materials and structures. Natural thatching requires costly and time-consuming maintenance along with the treatment of environmentally harmful chemicals, such as flame-retardants and insect fumigants that can put guests in danger or cause the loss of business. The issues with natural thatching materials can be avoided with the use of safer and more eco-friendly synthetic thatch.
