FIBERTHATCH -PRODUCT DATA SHEET
Polyolefin Fiber Thatch is manufactured in tile format.
The extruded strands are packed and brushed in jigs to imitate that real thatch look!
A reinforced polyurethane binding strip is used to glue the simulated thatch particles in one tile.
The tile can also be stapled, nailed or screwed through the polyurethane strip to timber battens or onto a metal sub roof.
