Irrigating green roofs sustainably
With intelligent rainwater management.
How can we save and make the best-possible use of such a valuable resource as water? What measures work when extreme weather conditions prevail? Our patented thin water storage layer is the result of years of in-depth research and development. It lies at the heart of ClimaGrün’s intelligent water cycle.
ClimaGrün’s thin water storage layer makes optimum use of rainwater. Intelligent rainwater management also provides further benefits. For instance, biodiversity on green roofs is encouraged, evaporation increases and the impact of extreme heat islands in urban spaces is mitigated. And the ClimaGrün roof system responds quickly to heavy rainfall that results from climate change.
Rainwater on demand
The thin water storage layer can store rainwater on site. It seeps into the top layer of soil. Any excess water not absorbed by plants at the time flows into the water retention layer that holds the water back. When required, this layer releases the stored water back into the green roof’s layer of soil. What’s more, it requires less energy than conventional irrigation systems.
The benefits of the patented thin water storage layer are as follows:
- Temporary or permanent storage of rainwater
- A good response to heavy rainfall
- Efficient water consumption
- An enormous quantity of water stored
- Steady evaporation, even in dry spells
- Biodiversity is maintained
- A slim green roof system with a low static load
- A resource-friendly and energy-saving option
