GREEN ROOF SYSTEMS THAT BREATHES THE CITY
ONDUGREEN CREATES EXTRA LIVING AND FUNCTIONAL AREAS
Fast urbanization in the cities all over the world has resulted in the loss of green lands. Natural surroundings that should normally exist have been replaced by concrete buildings. Air pollution has become a major worldwide problem.
The Green Roof system helps to protect the environment: by using recycled products where disposal sites are relieved and nature has the chance to reconquer space in crowded cities. Green Roofs are worth being installed from small surfaces on garages or car ports up to large industrial surfaces.
Every year, natural surroundings are sacrificed in favor of urban development’s whereas Green Roofs constitute the ideal solution for offsetting the loss of nature. That is why we have found technical innovative and practicable solutions for integral use of the roof- from the so called extensive landscaped roof as an ecological protection layer up to beautiful “Roof Garden” which can be combined with footpaths and road surfaces. To compensate the functions of the missing ground is the main requirement in view of establishing durable vegetation on roof surfaces. Technically perfected Green Roof Systems combined with Onduline guarantees a durable success of landscaped roofs.

Fundamental Build Up Levels
Suitable plants to the climate of the area when installed in proper system will last for years.
Growing Medium (vegetation level)
A roof planting soil which is adapted to the plant level. The base of each roof planting soil is “Zincolit” which is completely mineral material on the basis of crushed clay bricks, enriched with the organic material “Zincohum”.
Filter and Drainage Levels
Prevents fine particles from being washed out of the substrate soil, thereby ensuring efficiency of the drainage layer. Profiled drainage elements retain rainwater for dry periods in troughs on the upper side. The surplus water is drained off through the channel system on the underside. Special holes ensure evaporation and the necessary ventilation. The extra-large water retaining troughs on the upper side supply the plants in dry periods.
Moisture Retention and Protection Mat
Provides mechanical protection and retains moisture and nutrients.
Root - Resistant Level
Prevents roots from affecting the efficiency of the waterproofing in case there is not a root-resistant one.
Roof Construction and Waterproofing
The Green Roof can be built-up on a strong and well waterproofed roof structure. The use of BITULINE waterproofing membranes gives a perfect waterproofing to the roofs.
