Innovative living spaces
The vegetation layers on roof function as the energy-saving building envelope - they are beautiful, ecological and help with flood control. They absorb up to 90% of the rainfall. Through the evaporation, water goes back into the natural cycle. Apart from that, green roofs create heat balance in summer and winter, because they provide improved room temperature by reducing the heat radiation, and the evaporation effect lowers the roof temperature from 80°C down to 30°C. When the room temperature stays cool long enough, the overall improved U-value of a green roof ensures a reduced heat loss and thus saves the heating expenses. In addition, noise is reduced and it also functions as the fire protection layer. A green roof is an ecologically intelligent alternative to gravels or pavers, which exhibits high level of environmental consciousness. Besides the ecological advantages, the subsidies could also be attractive. A green roof is a sustainable solution and supports a worthwhile future.
The green choice
Our EPDM rubber is the right choice for your green roof: It is ecologically safe and environment-friendly. In contrast to other roofing materials, NovoProof® contains no volatile plasticisers, and hence remains its long-lasting elasticity. While, for example, bituminous waterproofing membranes are multi-layered, our demonstrably robust prefabricated membrane, which is over 40 years old, is a single-layer material and yet waterproof and root-resistant without any herbicides. Thanks to our ThermoFast® welding technique, a reliable and waterproof sealing system is created for your green roof, where the penetrations, connections and closures are safely secured over decades.
