Palm leaves are commonly used for roof thatching, a traditional construction method consisting of building roofs with dry vegetal materials. When properly installed, the leaves shed water laterally and prevent it from reaching the inner structure, while also serving as a thermal insulator. Caneplex Design leafpalm leaves are available in two versions: knitted, in pieces of 120x120 cm, or sewn, in rolls of 100 cm high.
Caneplex Design natural materials are a product of selective cultivation and specific harvest time, which have been physically dried, heat-treated and disinfected before and after insertion, and their colour is completely natural, resulting in hue variation. For each one of them, the quality control is carried out by local partners while being subjected to phytopathological inspection before and during import.
It is advisable to use a wood preservative (fungicide) and water-soluble (preferably) wood varnish, colourless or in close tint, initially and at regular intervals of 2-3 years. That way the material is protected from fungus, the colour does not fade straight away, it is infused and preserved beyond the anticipated time.
