Baja Palm™ is made of safe and renewable polypropene and lasts for over 20 years, much longer than traditional natural palm thatching. Our synthetic palm thatch replicates the natural structure and movement of traditional palm leaves used for thatching. Flexible yet strong banding allows the artificial palm panels to shift and adjust to almost any roof design.

Compare the advantages of synthetic Baja Umbrella Palm™ to traditional natural and other materials.

Easy Installation

Our 3-layer Panels are ideal for installation on almost any existing solid roof design. While our 10-layer Baja style imitation palm thatch panels are designed to work perfectly with our Umbrella Kits.

Art Thatch® Baja Umbrella Palm™ panels can also be installed on any existing solid or open beam roof design. Consult one of our experts by phone for details on these various installation applications.

Affordable and Attractive

The marginal price difference between Baja Palm™ panels and natural thatching is more than made up for in the long term by the cost savings in maintenance and replacement. The highest quality natural palm thatch only lasts up to 7 years, based on climate conditions. Compare to Art Thatch® artificial thatching, which has a sustainable life beyond 20 years in all climates; more than double the life of its natural palm leaf counterpart.

Baja Palm™ synthetic thatch is filled with the natural colors and warm shades found in the natural settings native to Mexico, Europe, the South Pacific, Africa, and Asia. Art Thatch® simulates nature as closely as possible to fill the demand for a realistic artificial thatch that's identical to the palm used to create traditional thatched roofs.

Safe and Sustainable

Art Thatch® synthetic thatching is made of Polypropylene (PP), which is one of the most chemically neutral and safe plastics. This means the runoff from roofs thatched with Baja Palm™ is safe for sensitive water tables and marine environments. It also doesn't pose a risk to human health. Our artificial thatch is also sustainable and 100% renewable, as well as being recyclable and biodegradable.

Warrantied and Fire Rated

This provides an important value on your thatch roofing investment. Art Thatch® is impervious to moisture and the damage that insects, birds, and snakes do to traditional natural materials. That's one of the significant advantages of faux palm thatching over its counterpart.

We offer our Baja Palm™ artificial thatch product as both Class A fire rated and non-fire rated. This provides a large savings over natural thatch which is flammable by nature and can cost up to $3 a square foot to be fire retarded.

Art Thatch® also has UV protection, making it resistant to sun fading. Making sure that your artificial Mexican palm thatch stays realistic and beautiful for an extended period beyond natural thatch products.

Roofing Calculator

When deciding how much Baja Palm™ your project will require several critical calculations to determine the proper number of thatching panels needed based on slope, pitch, roof design, hips, and ridge lengths. Consult one of our experts by phone to determine exact number of palm panels necessary for your thatch roofing project.
