BUILDING PROTECTION The building’s life expectancy is increased, because it’s better protected from UV-rays, hail, acid rain and extreme temperature fluctuations

ENERGY EFFICIENCY Thermal insulating Green Roof build-ups with its insulating advantages are added to the conventional thermal insulation, saving significant air conditioning and heating costs.

CLEAN AIR The green roof’s breathing process distracts gasses and CO2 and SMOG from the air. Green roofs improve the microclimate by cooling and humidifying the surrounding air.

SOUND Due to the significant rise in soft surfaces of Green Roofs there is sound absorbation instead of sound reflection. The sound insulation of a building can be reduced up to 8 dB.

HEALTH AND WELLNESS Greenery within the build environment creates a healthier and more relaxed environment directly affecting our physical and mental health.
