Decorative Materials: Thatch Reed Ceiling Board This ceiling treatment replicates near perfectly, the underside of a traditional African lodge-style thatched roof. Natural reed (the same material in our Cape reed thatching tiles) is adhered to a 4′ x 8′ masonite board (or for custom orders plywood, marine plywood, OSB sheeting etc). Typically we use eucalyptus “Ntengus” to finish the edges and aid in the illusion of an authentic safari lodge ceiling. The reed itself is a myriad of very pale greens, rich browns, and golden tans, and responds extremely well to up-lighting.
This product can be used for both commercial and residential purposes. View some portfolio examples below for ideas for your next big project!
