African Cape Reed Thatch roof

Thatch is made from African Cape Reed native to South Africa. Cape Reed is harvest and produces an easy to use tile which can be clipped, nailed or screwed to its frame.


The roof pitch of an African Hut is usually steeper at 35 – 40 degrees so the Thatch roof will last longer due to its greater drainage capabilities. This also reduces the potential of the damage done by strong winds.

* OPTIONAL: Hardwood Posts

* African Huts are stained with 2 coats of premium, top of the range Haymes Simply Woodcare Dexpress. By default we use a Merbau colour finish, but you can choose any other colour.


The African roof or Cape reed tiles can also be replaced and Re-Thatched to freshen up that tired looking Hut, Gazebo, Pavilion or Cabana.

We source the top of the range quality African Cape Reed Thatch, imported directly from Africa. The thatch comes in form of a tile , measuring 800mm x 450mm x 25mm.

We recommend that the spacing of the African Thatch is no more than 330mm, but we can Re-Thatch to the original batten spacing if necessary. When Re-Thatching a metal framed structure the tiles are simply clipped on, or where there is a timber batten, tiles are stapled or nailed to the timber.
