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.
Green Roof Research
ZinCo collaborate regularly on various research projects with third-level institutions and other partners.

“An extensive green roof only needs to be irrigated during the growing-in phase.” This statement doesnt apply to all areas, of course. Its plausible, that in dry climates around the Mediterranean an extensive green roof also requires additional irrigation. Even in Germany there are certain areas that suffer long, dry periods. There is an increasing number of such regions due to climate change. For areas that have a dry climate, the new “Irrigated Extensive Green Roof” system offers a very efficient and inexpensive solution.
The conservation of biodiversity (biological diversity) in nature, is considered to be an important basis for human well-being. Green roofs too are capable of contributing to this; it is mainly low-maintenance roofs, that is to say, quite undisturbed green roofs, that are important refuges for various animal and plant species. Beetles, wild bees and butterflies find food and shelter there. However, the development of biodiversity depends to a great extent on how the habitats that are provided for the flora and fauna on a roof are structured.
ZinCo, the innovative green roof manufacturer has developed the Urban Climate Roof, a new system build-up and pioneering solution to counteract the heating up of densely populated towns and cities. The Urban Climate Roof boasts an extremely high evaporation capacity due to its design with irrigation and special plants and, therefore, provides for the active cooling of the ambient temperature. This allows for existing roof areas to be used directly as additional green areas and to have a positive impact on the urban climate.
