ZinCo Green Roof Layers

Each layer of a ZinCo Green Roof build-up compensates with the necessary functions which are otherwise lost with the missing ground. A durable plant coverage is guaranteed with the following layers:

1. Root Barrier

Protects the waterproofing of the roof from penetration by plant roots.

2. Moisture Retention / Protection Mat

Protects the root barrier from mechanical damage, as well as retaining water and nutrients.

3. Drainage Layer

Retains rainwater and irrigated water in troughs on the upperside, whilst the surplus water is safely drained away. Necessary ventilation to the root area is also guaranteed.

4. Filter Sheet

Prevents fine particles from being washed out of the substrate soil, thereby ensuring the efficiency of the drainage layer.

5. Growing Layer

Consists of ZinCo System Substrate, the perfect growing medium. It suits the needs of the green roof vegetation and provides for a stable growing environment.

6. Plant Level

Drought-resistant and robust plants like sedum-species up to demanding shrubs, bushes and even trees.
