"The only trusted synthetic Thatch"

With our long-standing history in the market, Fiber roofing has become one of the most respected thatch roofing suppliers in the world; focused on ensuring the right solution for our clients and distributors.
Over the past 42 years, Fiber roofing cc has endeavoured to answer the needs of the industry and has gone from strength to strength.

In 2015 our chairman, Jan Grobler, visited 12 Maldivian resorts on a fact-finding mission to determine why Fiber Roofing has never had any success. He has found that the Maldivian market has its own challenges:

-Price are very important because investors need a return within 5 years.
-Maldives’ roofs are constructed totally different from most thatch roofs globally.
-The Maldivians wanted the synthetic thatch to match their natural Cajun thatch 100%.

Benefits of Our thatch

  • Our Synthetic Thatch is Guaranteedfor 20 Year

  • Our synthetic thatch does not rot or decay
  • No toxic mould (prevents health hazards)
  • Birds, rodents and bugs can’t eat it (no disgusting infestations!)

  • Fiber Thatch is a technology designed specifically for all climates

A small “sample roof” right outside the entrance to the Valena airport, the roof was done two years ago so that all the Maldivians will see day after day, year after year, that no maintenance will ever be required and that the colour will never fade. A “50 years” maintenance free roof. Also note no battens are required because the tiles are stapled straight onto the sub roof and no storm wind nets will ever be acquired. Big savings!!!


What a beautiful roof!!! 

Two Years ago, Mr, Vir Chopra, Managing Director of the Reethi Faru Resort, was the first to do the resort roofs with Fiber Palm Thatch.  Mr Chopra and his team made this decision after visiting and inspecting every synthetic thatch manufacturer in the world and only after his project manager Mr. Badeeu visited the fiber factory spending a week to study the process and application method.

Take a Closer Look

Today more than 12 resorts are following their example, all resorts that will not spend a single dollar the next 50 years on roof maintenance.

The Maldivian resorts are viewed by Fiber Roofing not only as partners but also as friends.

We have appointed a Maldivian, Abdulla Nazim, to run our operations in the Maldives. As seen below we are constantly investing in training Maldivians to be able to offer our product to the Maldivian resort market at unbeatable prices.
