What is Urbanscape Green Roll?
Urbanscape Green Roll is specially developed for green roofs. Made of long rock mineral wool fibres specially needled to form a compact and dimensionally stable felt, it ensures excellent water retention and conservation in green roofs and is a good growing medium made from various mineral mixtures. Due to excellent water retention and conservation, sedum vegetated green roof designed by Urbanscape can be up to six times lighter than traditional green roof systems. This lightness means most buildings have a comfortable load-bearing capacity that is sufficient, and architects can even plan green roofs where it had not been possible before, such as on lightweight metal constructions. They can also be much thinner without compromising the performance, as Urbanscape® Green Roll growing media can hold up to 3-4 times more water per its volume than other green roof substrates.
