The Fiber Roofing techs spent 10 days on site teaching and installing the Fiber Reed Synthetic thatch with the A.C.G.M.team. Daniel says he was so impressed by A.C.G.M. as everyone was extremely keen to learn, even the top management got onto the roofs to learn how the installation should be done.

As in the photos on the right hand side, it is clear that the A.C.G.M. team are well skilled in the installation of the Fiber Roofing Synthetic thatch. The Completed roof s are beautiful and expertly installed. In Daniels own words “Well Done A.C.G.M.!!!!!”

Update on Bodufinolhu Resort
Some resort owners used the “no occupancy as a result of COVID’19” as an opportunity to replace the old natural palm roofs(Cajun) with Fiber Indian Ocean tiles. While old thatch were stripped, (the ceiling boards were kept in place), the Fiber factory working 24/7 to manufacture and load the containers for shipment.
1. FR-MO fire retarded waterproofed boards were loaded to enable the Maldivian tradesman to make a start.
2. Timber battens are screwed down on top of the old ceiling boards.
3. Joints are sealed. The sub roof now completed. Waterproofed with a 20 year warranty. The FR-MO Boards will stand up to a direct source of heat of 1000 degrees Celsius.
4. The Fiber Ocean tiles are stapled on from the cotton
 (eave) to the top
5. Stainless steel staples supplied is used, a requirement for the 20 year roof warranty. The design of the tiles make it impossible to staple it on wrong.  It is easy and fast, between 3 to 4 chalets a day.
The COVID’19 pandemic can give you the opportunity to do that maintenance that will be impossible to do when the business starts up again. The Fiber COVID’19 package of $52.00 per meter is at an unbeatable price. WEDARE ANY MANUFACTURER TO BEAT THIS PRICE!!! The package includes labor and all the materials delivered on site!
