Straw roofs of palm leaves
Do you also love that cosy, exotic atmosphere? Then our Straw Roofs of Palm Leaves are just what you need for the roofing of canopies, pergolas and parasols. Straw roofs are also a great alternative for covering walls at events and festivals, or building a tropical bar. Because straw roofs on sticks are easy to shorten, you have a lot of possibilities.
Bamboo Import straw roofs are made from dried palm leaves and are therefore 100% natural. During the production, the palm leaves are boiled and dried in the sun before they are mounted on the bamboo slats. If you want to use a palm roof inside, we advise you to impregnate it for fire resistance.
More information about the properties of straw roofs on sticks and how they can be attached can be found in the description of each product. If you have any questions or would like a customised quote, please do not hesitate to contact us. Of course you are always welcome to come and see the straw roofs and to collect them directly.
- Attach the bamboo slats through the palm roof with screws, tie wraps or Tie ropes against a flat surface or on (bamboo) rafters.
- Place the straw roofs on top of each other so that there is about 10 to 20 cm between the bamboo slats, which translates into 5-10 straw roofs per running metre. The closer the straw roofs overlap, the better they protect against the sun, rain and wind.
- If required, the straw roofs can easily be shortened. To shorten them lengthwise, simply saw through the bamboo slats with a bamboo saw. The straw itself can also be cut with scissors.
- For indoor use of the straw roofs, we recommend a treatment with fire retardant spray.
- The length of the dried palm leaves is approximately 70 cm. They are firmly attached to bamboo slats so that you can easily attach and screw the straw roof to a wall, roof, bar or parasol.
- Our straw roofs are 100% natural. During production, the palm leaves are boiled and dried in the sun before they are mounted on the bamboo slats. If you want to use a palm roof inside, we advise you to impregnate it for fire resistance.
- For outdoor use, the average lifespan of a straw roof on pole (in our climate) is between 3-5 years, in drier climates it is 7+ years.
- A flat straw roof lets more rain through and is less durable than a sloping or pitched straw roof that lets the rain run off.
