Green Roofs with KÖSTER TPO Roofing Membranes Green roofs not only add visual appeal to an often dreary roof design but also provide many tangible benefits for buildings and the environment:
(1) Substrate (Concrete), (2) Insulation, (3) KÖSTER TPO, (4) Landscaping
Due to these many benefits and recent trends, the demand for a roof waterproofing which allows flat roofs to be used as green roofs continues to grow. This month, the Weihenstephan-Triesdorf University of Applied Science, scientifically confirmed that KÖSTER TPO Roofing Membranes are optimally suited for green roofs. After two years of testing the root resistance of the membranes for green roofs according to FLL-Guidelines, KÖSTER TPO Roofing Membranes with a thickness of 1.8 mm and higher have received the official root and rhizome resistance seal. This allows the following roofing membranes to be included in future tenders for green roofs:
