The green rooftop construction and design require the use of specially selected plant species. They should be able to survive in thinner layer of soil substrate and harsher climate conditions. This type of system protects the roof coatings from any damages caused by UV radiation or mechanical damage. This extends the longevity of the roof insulation, improving the cooling processes (natural cooling equipment), even at very high temperatures outside.
The building rooftops are a great choice for intensive planting, especially if the roof construction permits it. The investment returns in part of cost savings in terms of heating and air conditioning, while extending the life of the rooftop. The plant layer absorbs about 20% of the dust and other harmful substances in the air. The slow evaporation of rainwater from the soil of the rooftop contributes for the conservation of natural moisture and the development of healthier environment.
The green rooftops provide great protection against noise infiltration inside the building. Through them it is easy to create an additional open space, which automatically turns into a favorite place for relaxation or hosting of unforgettable events and cocktail parties.
