Green Roofs - Green Roof Systems
The roof of a building partially or completely covered with vegetation or growing media planted on a waterproofing membrane are called green roof or green roof systems. Green roof or roof garden is the vegetative layers placed on the roof and green roofs can be used in a wide range from residences to industrial facilities. Green roofs combine the functions of drainage, water-moisture retainer and protection against plant roots. It is the best example of breathing, durable and resolved calculations. Plants used for the system; They are easy-to-care plants that are resistant to sunlight, wind and need little water.
Green roofs are advantageous in terms of sound insulation and energy conservation as well as thermal insulation, eye-catching aesthetics and positive environmental effects. Roofs with vegetation on them naturally absorb rain water and prevent dust formation. In addition, it protects the roof from natural factors such as rain and hail, thereby prolonging its life.
What are Green Roof Systems?
Protan manufactures quality membranes for use in all roof systems and offers tailor-made and tailor-made solutions. Single-ply roofing materials of Protan, the international supplier of world-leading roof systems and membranes, are environmentally friendly. With Protan solutions, it provides a simple building process and a roof ready to face the power of nature and future quality standards. Protan's products are developed and produced in accordance with the highest quality standards in its new and modern factories in Turkey. The products have also been tested and certified by the most authoritative rating agencies of Europe and Norway. It has also been tested and approved by a number of civil engineering institutions operating in Europe and Norway.
Covered membranes in roof structures are often referred to as ballasted or shielded roofs. Ballast; The basis for a green roof can be pebbles, concrete slabs or soil. Protan also offers membranes for various types of green roofs. These include Protan Diffuse Green Roofs, Protan Dense Green Roofs, and Protan Turf Roofs.
What Does Green Roof Systems Do?
Protan Root grass membranes are specially manufactured to withstand root damage, UV radiation and heat. The membrane is also resistant to air pressure. Protan turf roof membrane has stabilized durability and is durable and stabilized. In this way, its resistance to UV radiation and heat is also at an excellent level. Polyester reinforced membrane is designed to transmit wind force. It is also in BROOF (t1) and BROOF (t2) fire classification. The polyester felt is laminated on the back of the membrane to protect the membrane against mechanical stresses from uneven surfaces. Polyester felt is laminated on the back side of the membrane, thereby protecting the membrane against mechanical stresses caused by rough surfaces. The Proton turf roof system does not require the use of a drainage layer or layer.
What are the Advantages of Green Roof Systems?
Membrane with protected roofs; protected against direct stress caused by climatic and temperature fluctuations, punctures, tears and other mechanical damage. Ballasted and green roofs are also advantageous in terms of aesthetic design freedom, protection against external stress and increased fire safety. Protan's ballasted membranes for green and turf roofs are suitable for both new construction and renovation projects. It is the representative of an excellent quality and long-lasting use. Protected roofs can be used as an open space, relaxation area or roof garden. Offering great aesthetic freedom, these solutions not only contribute to a more natural environment with the use of gravel and plants, but also provide better acoustics.
Green roof systems reduce runoff that causes flooding after rains. Especially in cities with dense settlements, it is in the foreground with this feature. It cleans rain water and atmospheric pollutants from structures such as plants and soil. Since it also acts as insulation, it prevents the loss of heat generated inside. Since it provides insulation, it plays a role in the formation of cooler and warmer environments. Increases the life of roofing membranes. It reduces air and noise pollution. It has a positive effect by reducing carbon emissions. It also improves stormwater management.
It has the feature of holding, storing and filtering rain water. Thus, it prevents rain water from reaching the sewer system with a rapid flow in urban centers. Water is released in a slow and cleared manner. Since green roof plants use carbon dioxide for respiration, they take this gas, which is the trigger of global warming, from the atmosphere. It gives oxygen in place of the carbon dioxide it takes in. Since it increases the external relative humidity, it is also effective in reducing the ambient temperature. Thanks to its vegetation, it provides habitat for many living species, especially butterflies, birds and bees. It blocks electromagnetic waves. In this way, it contributes to human and animal health.
