The FIRE PROTECTION is applied following the same process, however we concentrate on applying the fire retardant to the exterior and the internal thatch surfaces. The chemical that we use is specifically designed for thatch roof application.
In the case of lightening striking the surface or a fire source coming into contact with the grass, the grass will not catch fire and spread, it will however smoulder at the point of contact and distinguish itself. The result of fire damage to thatch roofs comes from a number of sources; Veld fire, Lightening, electrical fault and negligence. Once the fire retardant is applied it is guaranteed for 5 years.
