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.

Benefits of Green Roofs

The combination of green roof and solar energy is not in trend for no reason. It is already well known that this combination can produce significant synergy effects: the green roof provides the superimposed load required to protect the system against wind uplift. Therefore, there is no need for roof penetration or heavy individual point loads. In addition, green roofs provide for a lower ambient temperature compared with bare or gravelled roofs and as a result they help to increase the yield from a solar energy system.
The larger the roof area, the greater the pressure on your budget. For this reason, ZinCo has created a single product that incorporates a number of the functional layers found in a green roof build-up. Supplied in rolls and with the filter sheet already attached, Fixodrain® XD 20 offers a protective, drainage, water retaining and ventilation layer in one. The system build-up with Fixodrain® XD 20 is particularly suitable for the expansive area of an extensive green roof – and even for inverted roofs.
