Green Roofs and roof gardens



In recent years, cities across the globe have been actively developing more green roofs, which essentially means the top of a house or building that features vegetation planted over a waterproof barrier. The benefits of green roofs go well beyond esthetic beauty today. Urban roofs can decrease the effects of runoff, purify the air by filtering out pollutants and help moderate the energy needed to maintain the temperature of a building by keeping the roof warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer.

Each rooftop is a unique microclimate, with varying factors such as region, height protection from other buildings, wind patterns, freeze/thaw cycle, weather extremes, etc.

Pontarolo Engineering supplies Green Roof products that contribute to the design of sustainable and durable garden roofs, both extensive and intensive, that perform in any roof type site condition.




Advantages


  • Speed and simplicity of assembly are the primary
  • Superior drainage of excess water/flow rates
  • Suitable for steep roofs, due to its interlocking system

  • Made of 100% recycled high-density polyethylene


Applications


  • Extensive green roof systems
  • Intensive green roof systems
  • Existing terraces or balconies




Benefits


  • Temperature mitigation inside the building during summer
  • Increase drainage surface
  • Reduction of the temperature due to the evaporation of the retained water
  • Better thermal wave damping
  • Great thermal inertia
  • Improved quality of life
  • Improved air quality
