Green roofs mimic nature and replace flora and fauna displaced by urban development. They are natural, almost maintenance free and bring a wealth of benefits and design possibilities to property owners, planners, architects and landscape architects. Xeroflor makes the creation of such roofs easier and faster, as well as , more reliable, durable and affordable.
Our Xeroflor green roof systems can often double the lifespan of a roof by reducing stress from heat and UV while managing stormwater runoff. In cities they bring valuable biodiversity and additional habitats for birds and insects.
Xeroflor specialises in flexible pre-vegetated mats that can be easily transported, unrolled and fitted - especially useful where landscape designs involving complicated shapes and contours. These thin lightweight mats are ideal for retrofits, or on older buildings unable to take heavy loads. They are equally at home for urban infrastructure projects such as greening around roadside and tramways.
Xeroflor’s pre-vegetated systems deliver an instant transformation - a ‘ready to go’ green surface with healthy matured plants, easy installation and minimal maintenance. Our green roof drainage composites with Enka® technology are specially designed to maintain the optimum water-air balance to keep the plants healthy, while efficiently dispersing excess water, on flat or sloped surfaces.
Helping our customers deliver amazing results on projects that improve our quality of life…while driving business growth.
