FAQ: Bora Bora Palm Thatch
What kind of upkeep does Palmas require?
A very reassuring answer: the Palmas requires practically no upkeep! Dirt from birds, twigs from tress, etc. will disappear with the first rainfall, or with the pressure from a stream of water. The high quality polymer used confers an exceptional protection against insects and all other destructive organisms
Do the leaves give off an odor?
The intrinsic properties of the polymers used will not tolerate any foreign element, whether chemical or organic. The absolute neutrality of the polymer used by Palmas is proven in its daily use as water jerry cans, milk cans, gas, etc.
How does Palmas react to wind?
Because of both their quantity and density, the leaves tied to each other already provide a considerable collective weight. In addition, attaching the rails to the trusses also increases the strength of the construction. Clips are nevertheless available and suggested at certain latitudes
How does Palmas react to the strongest winds?
Attaching clips offers a better guarantee against very high winds. For winds from tropical storms, flexibility becomes a very efficient safety factor. In extreme wind conditions, the leaves under attack let the excess wind pressure through in order to eliminate the devastating delta effect that is so well known in construction circles
What guarantees are offered against fire?
Perfected by Palmas, the fireproof material we offer is rated at V0 in Canadian and US standards. In France, it is homologated at M3 at the CSTB under number RA03-0141. It therefore respects the rules in effect for the construction of buildings in public locations. The user must verify the legal standards for each country.
