Considering the dry and grassy nature of thatch products, having a fire retardant thatch roof is a must. Forever Bamboo offers multiple ways to protect your thatch decor, including fire rated thatch products and our fire retardant sealant.

In addition to our commercial-grade, eco-friendly thatch, we also provide everything you need to maintain and care for it properly. Browse our products and read on to learn more about protecting your thatch from flames.

Why Is Fire Rated Thatch Important?

Thatch is made of natural grasses and is commonly used as a roofing material, particularly for shade structures, Tiki bars, huts and palapas. Its sustainability and aesthetic appeal make it a popular choice for homeowners and designers.

However, grass and dry reeds are extremely flammable, making thatch roofs more vulnerable to fire than other roofing materials. If a thatch roof catches on fire, the flames spread quickly and are difficult to extinguish. That said, proper fire protection is crucial when it comes to thatch roofing and decor.

Thankfully, it’s easy to enjoy the natural beauty of a thatch roof without having to worry about increased fire risk. At Forever Bamboo, making your thatch decor as safe as possible is our top priority.

What’s the Difference Between Fire Rated Thatch and Fire Resistant Thatch?

While fire rated and fire resistant sound similar, they actually indicate different things. Fire rated thatch has been tested to withstand certain temperatures for a certain period of time. Fire resistant or fire retardant thatch has a sealant coating to reduce fire risk and prevent excessive smoke production. Both provide essential fire protection, but in different ways.
