Tropical Architectural & Decorative Materials


Explore Safari’s collection of wall cladding, ceiling treatments, and decorative trim. Highly realistic synthetic offerings are perfect for exterior settings where natural materials are not practical, while natural materials with their rich textures and colors provide instant character to any space. Inquire about our fire rated options for commercial applications – most natural materials will achieve a full class-A fire rating with Safari’s topical F/R systems, while our synthetic offerings carry several F/R choices extruded into the plastic and warrantied for the life of the material.
