ViroThatch is a very popular, eco-friendly roofing material that is used in parks, resorts, and hotels all over the world. ViroThatch products are made of synthetic materials that look and feel all-natural while offering you the advantages of man-made resources that are durable, long-lasting, and can be utilized in all climates.
Synthetic Thatch ViroThatch can be used on projects that experience extreme heat and humidity, in parks and resorts that are regularly pummeled with high winds, and in areas where freezing temperatures and heavy snow loads in winter are the norm. The freeze-thaw cycle doesn’t harm ViroThatch, and animals that tend to nest or settle in natural thatch find this synthetic material far less hospitable.

Advantages of Virothatch

  • Works well in every climate, indoors or outdoors. Virothatch is made of durable, eco friendly roofing materials that aren’t affected by either the cold temperatures of the north or the high heat and humidity experienced in many resort areas. It’s completely waterproof and weatherproof. It’s perfect for indoor waterparks, resorts in hot climates, or other areas that experience constant moisture and humidity.
  • Little-to-no maintenance needed. Virothatch is made from synthetic material that doesn’t rot or shed pieces of grass or thatch. Rodents and birds are not attracted to Virothatch and will not nest in it. It’s also termite resistant.
  • Fire rated. Our products have a full range of fire-rated options for the safety of you, your clients, and your guests. You can choose from non-fire retarded, Class-B, or full Class-A.
  • No fading. Unlike synthetic thatch made from PVC, which has a tendency to fade and turn brittle in the sun, ViroThatch is made from 100% high density polyethylene (HDPE). It’s UV-stable and is guaranteed for up to 20 years against fading and brittleness.
  • Safe, natural components. There are no toxic by-products contained in Virothatch materials because it is made entirely of HDPE, meaning that it’s 100% recyclable. It you have committed to build with green materials, our products are perfect to complement your home or business.
