Firestone Rubber Cover - "Nobody Covers you Greener"
Green Roofs are widely used around the world and are now becoming very popular in Ireland.
Putting a garden on your flat roof is a great way to make better use of confined city space or to fit in with a country environment. Our green roof system also protects the environment and saves you money in the long term.
Firestone RubberCover EPDM is an ideal membrane as a foundation to any green roof system. Once the Firestone EPDM RubberCover has been installed on a flat roof, the green roof is a very simple procedure. We can install lightweight and low maintenance sedum vegetation onto your new flat roof.
Firestone RubberCover EPDM is an “Inert” membrane (it contains no harmful plastizers or toxins) and is the only flat roof membrane recommended by Greenpeace, GreenTeam and NIBE as a membrane with low environmental impact.
Firestone EPDM is available in large seamless rolls (up to 930 m2). The roofing membrane is lightweight and flexible. Firestone EPDM green roofing membrane has successfully passed the FLL test for root penetration and can therefore provide dependable performance in a demanding roofing environment.
The benefits of the combination of a Firestone RubberGard EPDM membrane with a green roof system are numerous and include:
- Increased life expectancy of the roof
- Added value to the aesthetics
- Lower energy costs
- Easy installation and maintenance
- Improved air quality
- Reduction of the urban heat-island effect
- Storm water management
- Extra soundproofing and insulation
- A natural habitat for plants and birds
