Benefits of Green Roofs
Learn more about the numerous benefits of Green Roofs:
The increase in rain events and flooding and a lowering of the water table are clear indicators that the ecology of the water cycle has been severely impaired as a result of climate change and the consistently high level of soil sealing. This is where green roofs come into play, providing additional green space in densely developed urban areas. Each green roof stores a certain quantity of stormwater and then allows it to run-off in a time delay or to evaporate on the roof. The New Stormwater Management Roof from ZinCo expands this retention effect and in so doing effectively balances out precipitation peaks. A very promising solution!
While the greening of flat roofs nowadays is very common and popular worldwide, with millions of square meters being installed every year, the greening of pitched roofs is still considered as an exceptional case. ZinCo has offered proven systems solutions for the greening of pitched roofs since 1990.
