GREEN ROOFS are an aesthetic feature added to blend in with the natural landscape and environment. GREEN ROOFS have been scientifically proven to have a positive impact on the environment with the plants generating better air by minimising greenhouse emissions. The grit sand filtration within the system ensures the rain water draining back into the storm water is clean.

GREEN ROOFS which have insulation panels installed below the green roof system save energy for a building through the climatic seasonal changes in heating and cooling costs of the building throughout the year.

For GREEN ROOFS, Waterproofing Systems recommend that the system is installed over the bituFLAME 2 layer membrane system, which includes the bituFLAME Anti-Root membrane to accept the wear of scuffing, scratches, installation of the drainage grid, soil installation, planting and the irrigation system.

Live roof 360 is a pre-vegetated modular system that can be installed over a bituFLAME 2 GREEN ROOF system.

There are a selection of plants which suit and work well with GREEN ROOF systems. We recommend contacting a professional green roof landscape specialist to ensure the planting selection is compatible with the system, soil depth, local climate and fits in with the surrounding landscape to ensure the very best GREEN ROOF finish for the building.

STONE BALLAST ROOFS provide an aesthetically pleasing exposed roof finish, blending into the natural surrounds.

Waterproofing Systems recommend STONE BALLAST systems are installed over the bituFLAME 2 layer membrane system, which includes the bituFLAME Anti-root membrane. The duroTUF TPO is able to be used in a STONE BALLAST system if the drainage grid system has the Inca drain 8mm thick double sided scrim and the stone ballast coverage is 35-40mm thick.

We have uncovered the edge of a STONE BALLAST system at 16 years old and found the bituFLAME membrane virtually had not aged, with the bitumen still soft and pliable, very close to the condition it left our warehouse in. This would also apply to bituFLAME used in the Green Roof systems.

Features & Benefits

For GREEN ROOFS:

  • Improvement of stormwater management
  • Water and pollution filtration
  • Human health & wellbeing – when looking on to green roof spaces, reduces stress levels, with access to green space
  • Aesthetic look and feel
  • Bio-diversity and habitat creation
  • Food supply
  • Climate change
  • Retains the properties of the bituFLAME membrane system as it is never exposed to weathering elements and UV rays

For STONE BALLAST ROOFS:

  • Assists with stormwater management
  • Water and pollution filtration
  • Aesthetic look and feel
  • Retains the properties of the membrane system as it is never exposed to weathering elements and UV rays

Advantages

bituFLAME Plura AD self-stick base sheet used where direct open flame is not recommended for plywood substrates, as part of a 2 Layer system.

One of the most significant benefits of the GREEN & STONE BALLAST ROOFS is that all of the manufacturing properties are retained within the membrane system.

Durability

GREEN & STONE BALLAST ROOFS: When installed to specification and subject to normal environmental conditions and use, the bituFLAME membrane system will exceed 20 years when properly maintained.

bituFLAME torch-on membranes have a consistent installed thickness of 6.5-7mm across the entire mineral chip roof, this conformity across the roof surface makes it a more durable roof.

STONE BALLAST ROOFS: When installed to specification and subject to normal environmental conditions and use, the duroTUF TPO membrane system will exceed 20 years when properly maintained.

Compliance

The bituFLAME membrane system complies with the NZBC E2/AS1 as an alternative solution and is BRANZ appraised (404) to be used on roofs, decks, parapets and internal gutters.

The duroTUF TPO membrane system complies with the NZBC E2/AS1 as an alternative solution and is BRANZ appraised (950) to be used on roofs and decks.
