Showcasing world’s leading palm leaves

NEW entrants to this year’s HOTEC tradeshow, Palmex Oceania (Fiji) Limited are excited and eager to showcase their unique world renowned synthetic thatch product at this year’s HOTEC Tradeshow.

Made in Canada and installed on rooves in over 50 countries on five continents, Palmex produces 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!

Palmex products are free of any toxic substances, designed according to ISO9001-2008 norms, and partially built from recycled materials.

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

The industrial-strength and highly-resistant materials suit all climates. This superior durability is what makes Palmex products’ lifespan estimated at 50 years or more.

Palmex synthetic thatch provides unrivalled protection against rain and sun because it uses the same materials used for manufacturing small boats and water tanks.

The synthetic thatch has survived severe cyclones such as Cyclone Winston and Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico.

Managing director Thomas Johansen said their products have been thoroughly tested to withstand cyclone conditions while remaining completely compatible with tropical island weather patterns.

With the commitment to ensuring the most professional and efficient synthetic roof services, Palmex has adorned their world-renowned thatch on numerous resorts around Fiji such as the popular Likuliku Lagoon Resort, Malolo Island Resort, Musket Cove Island Resort and Marina, Sofitel Fiji Resort and Spa, Radisson Blu Resort and Spa and the Outrigger on the Lagoon Fiji.

“There are huge economic and environmental spin-offs for both large resorts and individual property owners. Resorts and property owners save over the long term with Palmex since they no-longer have to go through the labor-intensive exercise of re-thatching the already endangered and limited natural ‘soga’ every three to five years, even shorter in the event of a cyclone,” said Mr Johansen.

“The 20-year warranty provides that added comfort and security over one’s investment, especially during unforeseen events like natural disasters and fire. The product is also 100 per cent recyclable making it the perfect and permanent roofing solution!”.

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