Green roof insulation

A green roof with JACKODUR thermal insulation offers ideal protection against external conditions. It also creates a visually appealing, natural and environmentally friendly environment.

Green roofs offer a number of advantages to builders and planners. For instance, with office buildings or buildings in built-up areas, they can create green oases of rest and relaxation for the office workers or residents. There are also possible tax advantages for builders, as less of the surface is sealed on buildings with a green roof structure.

In addition to its function as a medium for the plants to grow in, the green roof structure also fulfils the same functions as the gravel layer in the gravelled inverted roof. That is to say, it prevents the thermal insulation from buoying upwards during heavy rainfall, and protects it against UV radiation, flying sparks and wind suction. We recommend that the design and creation of a green roof be carried out together with a specialised planner and an experienced company.

A distinction is essentially made between extensive and intensive roof greening.
