How do Palmex products withstand cold?

Our product can withstand harsh Canadian winters. The polymer we use is the same polymer used for manufacturing gasoline containers and winter sleds.

How do Palmex products stand up to the heat?

Polyethylene is a non-reactive material that conducts neither heat nor cold. In addition, compare to their natural counterparts like Polathu or Illuk, our layered installation method (air pockets) provides cooler under-roof temperatures year-long, in all seasons and throughout the product’s entire lifespan.

Can I install Palmex products myself?

You can install the Rio/Domingo leaves yourself and extensive instructions on how to install them are available. Although the procedure is somewhat simple, it does require some manual ability or experience. We will assist you as much as possible in that respect. The Bora-Bora/Aloha leaves however will not be sold without installation.
