Reliable Green Roofing Systems for Utilised Roof Landscapes
In their sum of their positive ecological and economical characteristics, green roofs make a relevant contribution toward achieving future-oriented sustainable architecture. ZinCo provides tried and tested solutions worldwide for all types of green roofing. Our programme extends from extensive green roofing as an ecological protective covering or in conjunction with a photovoltaic system to roof gardens and green roofing of underground car park roofs with pathways or driveways. System-integrated, fall-prevention systems that are installed without the need for roof penetration are also an integral part of our system solutions for greened roofs.

The private dwelling house, Gleneagles Drive Residence with its spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean is in one of the most sought after neighbourhoods of West Vancouver. The flat-roof building on a hillside location, comprising a number of individual components, has an extensive green roof area totalling approx. 180 m² and presents itself as being just as cultivated and elegant as the sophisticated neighbourhood in which it is situated. ZinCo Canada Inc. supplied the suitable system build-up “Sedum Carpet” – simple and flowering.
Sustainability is a real buzzword in the construction sector but things are only truly sustainable if they work properly in the long term and this often depends on structural details. For example, if a fall protection system required by law is planned for a flat roof or a solar energy system or if railings have to be fitted around the sparkling new roof garden, unfortunately, the roof is often penetrated in order to secure these elements. However, in certain circumstances this can create cold or thermal bridges and weak points in the roof waterproof membrane. This is now no longer necessary as ZinCo provides tried and tested solutions that do not require the roof membrane to be penetrated, thereby extending the life of the roof considerably. These solutions all work on the ballast principle.
