• 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.

  • Plant transpiration
    - 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
