Palm Fibre is a thick rolled leaf material, which can be effective in creating a highly textured Polynesian effect, but can also be used imaginatively in contemporary settings. Many people prefer this material because it is lightweight and has great acoustic qualities that assist in the breakup of sound.
How Is The Palm Fibre Supplied?
The material comes in a roll measuring 1.8m x 2.4m and is easily modified if needed using a sharp Stanley knife. The palm leaves are rolled and tightly bound with a clear nylon cable which is tied in a knot between each section. This prevents the material from falling apart if cut.
The material is lightweight with one roll weighing approx. 12kg.
Uses For Palm Fibre
- The material can be stapled/tacked to the underside of rafters or to battens whereby you would like to expose the rafters as a feature. It offers a unique textured ceiling finish and takes the onlooker away from your traditional thatched roofs to a more contemporary tropical feel. The Momi Bay Resort, Marriott Hotel in Fiji is a lovely illustration of this. The palm fibre was placed into framed sections and then placed in an arched roof to create a stunning feature ceiling. The designer steered away from the traditional Fijian coir material that is used extensively throughout Fiji for ceilings and roofs and chose House of Bamboo’s exclusive palm fibre material to make their mark.
- Palm fibre has also been used to create textured wall panels that provide a unique visual effect. Due to the rolled sections of palm leaves and the natural unevenness of the roll it offers a perfect solution for spaces that require flat surfaces address due to noise problems. In fact it has been used as wall linings in sound studios… Functional and aesthetically beautiful!
- This material has also been a preferred roofing solution because of its durability and water-resistant properties. Furthermore, palm fibre has been used in a variety of purposes because of the ventilation that it provides by facilitating the proper circulation of air.
