The multilevel structure of the planted roof consists of successive layers of specialized materials that ensure its proper long-term operation.
2.1 Anti-root membrane.
To ensure the anti-root protection of the roof, synthetic or bituminous membranes are applied. Specialized membranes are resistant to acids and have a high resistance to extreme temperature differences.
2.2 Moisture protection and retention substrate.
The substrates of protection from polyester, synthetic fibers (ZinCo Protection Mat SSM45, BSM64, ISM50), cover the surface of anti-root membranes protect the roof from mechanical stress while at the same time acting as water storage levels.
2.3 Drainage System.
Drainage leaves have a cellular structure with bilateral perforated encapsulators and aim at (i) maintaining the appropriate drainage conditions and (ii) retaining water and gradually absorbing it from plants
The drainage systems are made of plastic recycled and recyclable materials such as HD-PE/ABS (ZinCo Floradrain, Protectodrain, Stabilodrain) or hydrophobic expanded polysteline EPS-SE (ZinCo Floratherm).
2.4 Filter filter.
The filter filter made of reinforced polypropylene (ZinCo Filtersheet SF, TG) prevents the flow of microparticles from the growth medium to the underlying layers.
2.5 Plant Growth Substrate.
Specialized growth media (egreen_ZinCo) have a small specific gravity and graduated granulometry.
