GSBN:Fwd: thatch roofing
I don't know how many of you might have received this, but wanted to
pass it along to this list. Interesting idea. I don't know these folks
and I've not had time yet to look at their website or anything else, so
I send it without any sort of endorsement. I'm curious if anyone on the
list knows them?

Subject: thatch roofing
Etreville, Normandy, France, June, 23rd
Our company specialized in thatch roofing, has been operating for more
years in France, serving the individuals and public institutions.
The demand for vegetable roofing, consolidated by a strong ecological
in constant increase. Unfortunately, there is a skill gap and indeed,
present thatching techniques (between 4 and 5mÂ² per day) do not make it
possible to satisfy the demand, within reasonable lapse of time
(between 1 and
2 years, in France).
To come up to the market expectations, we have conceived a system of
panels, manufactured in our own workshops which consist of a frame of
and lathes, covered with tiered rows of reed, exactly as on a roof. The
manufacturing process structurally meets the same schedule of
thatching on construction sites and makes it possible to reduce the
times to a few weeks.
Logistics on thatching site
These panels are conveyed by containers or trailers and then hauled up
roof, by lifting gears, fastened to the frame and linked up by one
the roof itself to obtain a perfectly rainproof thatched roof. Then he
the rainproof works and obviously the ridge.
This process is perfectly adapted to traditional frames of plane roofs
of ledges (hip rafters) or not, without valleys, for a minimal slope of
for the industrial trusses or support rafters, the frame must be
battens meant to receive our own thatched frames.
Pour les couvertures plus complexes, comportant des lucarnes et des
disposons dâ??Ã©quipes qui interviennent sur site, sans recours Ã  la
For more complex roofing, including dormers and valleys, we employ
operate on site, without resorting to prefabrication.
To assure our international development, we are looking for architects,
carpenters, roofers or traditional wooden houses builders interested by
concept of the thatched cottage and willing to play the role of logistic
coordinator for the panelsâ?? installation on site and provide local
with potential buyers.
