Synthetic Thatch Solutions

Palmex produces the world’s most durable & easy to own synthetic thatch.

Made in Canada and installed on roofs in over 50 countries on 5 continents, we produce a very realistic-looking, eco-responsible, low maintenance and long-term thatch solution that respects the beauty of traditional palm leaf roofing. In other words, Palmex helps resort managers and property owners replace thatch for the last time.

 

Eco-Responsible

Palmex International Inc. is proud to supply its clientele with eco-responsible, 100% recyclable, heavy-duty & long-lasting tropical roofing. 

 

Our products are free of any toxic substances, designed according to ISO 9001-2008 norms, and partially built from recycled materials.

 

In production, our synthetic palm leaves undergo a special anti-UV treatment which translates into great energy savings on air-conditioning and ventilation.

For environmental reasons, our packaging is kept to an absolute minimum when preparing product for shipping.

Our industrial-strength and highly-resistant materials suit all climates. This superior durability is what makes a PALMEX product’s lifespan estimated at 50 years or more. Nonetheless, should the circumstances require it, PALMEX leaves can be dismantled and re-used.

 

PALMEX products have been designed to provide a permanent, long-term solution to the problematic issue of the massive over-harvesting of natural resources throughout the planet for the purpose of building exotic roofing. Our products help minimize the negative effects that economic growth and real-estate development can have on the natural environment.

 

Desirous of sharing a vision for sustainable development, Palmex International Inc. is proud to offer an eco-responsible product range to fulfill today’s building and development demands without compromising the ability of future generations to fulfill their own in turn.

FAQs

Q. Are Palmex products waterproof?

A. Palmex roofs are guaranteed to be 100% watertight when placed at 30° pitch or greater. The layering of leaves and the fixture method provide the structure with its waterproof qualities. And this also applies for the Aloha and Bora Bora models that are fixed without any sub-roofing. This makes Palmex product unique.


Q. How do Palmex products withstand cold?

A. Our product can withstand harsh Canadian winters. The polymer we use is the same material used for manufacturing gasoline containers and winter sleds. 


Q. How do Palmex products stand up to the heat?

A. Polyethylene is an non-reactive material that conducts neither heat nor cold. In addition, with our layered installation method that creates air pockets, Palmex structures maintain cooler under-roof temperatures year-long, in all seasons and throughout the product's entire lifespan, than their natural counterparts. 


Q. How do Palmex products handle winds?

A. According to tests carried out in a specialized technical laboratory, Palmex products can resist winds of up to 260 km/h - 160 mph. 


Q. What kind of maintenance do Palmex products require?

A. NONE: Our leaf design allows for simple, natural elimination of any residue.


Q. What kind of warranties does Palmex provide?

A. A 20-year warranty covers all Palmex products, except for Palma Cana model which is guaranteed 12 years. 


Q. Can I install Palmex products myself?

A. YES: full instructions on how to install Palmex products are available in both video format or as instruction manuals that can be printed out. Although the procedure is somewhat simple, it does require some manual ability or experience. A professional roofer may prove useful in some instances. 


Q. Does the colour of the leaves will change over time? 

A. Our leaves are certified UV protected. However, the colour will slowly be modified over the long run due to sun rays, but the fading is minimal and does not affect the quality of our product. 


Q. Are Palmex leaves flammable? 

A. Our Class A and C fire-retardant products (FR) are built up with a supplemented fireproof component making them non-flammable.
