Green roofs systems

Green roofs are known as living roofs, eco-roofs or vegetated roofs. Are with vegetation cultivated on purpose.

There are 2 main types of green roofs

.: intensive green roofs, with irrigation and substrate layers up to 40 cm, where even bushes and some trees wit little development can grow. Intensive green roofs are expensive and result impossible in most cases.

.: extensive green roofs, with a very thin substrate layer covered with succulent plants are defined as low maintenance, drought-tolerant, self-seeding vegetated roof covers.

Green roofs offer lots of environmental benefits:

-Drecreased surface runoff

-Decreased heating and cooling building demands

-Increased localbiodiversity

-Improve local air quality

-Mitigates the Urban Heat Island effect

C2C is an extensive green roof based on pre-cultivated vegetation to ensure the maximum instant impact when installed either on flat or slightly sloping surfaces (up to 30%).

It is conformed by flexible and modular self 54 cm wide. The draingin element is out of non-toxic regerated plastic (PP) and 54x54x9 cm sized.

The perforated module base drains the excessive water straight to the felt below which keeps the water humidity.

The substrate filled modules are planted with 100 g/m² of Sedum spp. and Mesembryanthemum cooperi cuttings, which are covered with a layer of round gravel (Ø 20-25) for rooting. Finally, the module is cultivated for 6 – 12 months, in accordance with the vegetative season.

The module fit with another on all the sides getting a full coated covered surface. The round edge gravel solves the roof perimeter.  Once everything is installed we get an insant impact since the modules are tailored made with pre-cultivated vegetation in our nursery-
