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 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.
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!
