• Heat Reflective
White colour results in a heat reflective index of 70% and
retains a high proportion of this through its service life due
the colour fastness and retention of the membrane.
• No Toxic Emissions
The TPO membrane system is chlorine-free, non-halogenated and plasticizer-free formulation and in combination with the hot-air welded seaming method produce no emissions harmful to the environment.
• Bacteria Propagation Resistant
The TPO membrane exhibits excellent resistance to the
propagation of discolouring bacteria that reduces the heat
reflectivity and energy efficiency.
• Low Carbon Footprint
The TPO membrane can also be easily recycled and has
a lower production footprint than comparable systems.
Ecological Benefits of Green Roof system:
Reduction of the urban heat island effect
- prevent reflection of heat into the surrounding atmosphere.
- resulting in cooling the atmosphere.
Reduction of energy costs
Excellent natural insulation properties
- keep the cold out in winter and the heat out in summer.
Storm water management
- through water retention and increased evaporation.
New habitats for plants & animals
Green roofs create a natural habitat for local wildlife.
Improved air quality
- purification of the air by filtering dusts and pollutants and converting CO2 into oxygen.
Reduction of noise pollution
- Excellent sound insulators reducing the noise pollution
The TPO membranes Cedar Roofing use have successfully passed the FLL test for root penetration resistance in green roofs.
It is an ideal membrane for combination with extensive green roof systems using lightweight and low maintenance sedum vegetation.
