Cape Reed completed this project with 5 members in 23 days in Urbanization – Los Monteros, Marbella, Spain.
It took more than 1000 nuts and bolts to form the structure with 200 specially selected and pressure treated poles.
During the thatching process 5000 bundles of thatch together with 682 meter’s Twine and 120m² of our special fire retardant Fireshield was used to accomplish perfection. Fireshield is a specially formulated chemical can be applied to thatch, timber and various other materials to significantly increase resistance to fire.
This product conforms to international standards and complies with all relevant requirements and standards for construction with natural materials. Under UK Standard BS476 Part 3, European Standard EN13501-5 and Dubai Civil Defence Standards, the product offers an overall B-Roof (t1) fire rating.
Cape Reed Fireshield is a water based intumescent coating that does not contain any toxic elements and is both user-friendly as well as environmentally friendly.
One of the pre-requisites of the site was that no vegetation was to be destroyed or harmed in the process of construction.
The goal was that the end product ensures the garden retains its natural tropical look slotting in the natural Cape Reed structure as if it was there all along.
Tranquility at its best.
