|Extensive Green Roof Mat System Cutaway Section|
Florida is subject to summer tropical storms and hurricanes. Wind speeds of over one hundred miles per hour are typically seen across rooftop systems during these weather events.
Three dimensional mats serve multiple purposes in green roof systems.
First, the mat holds soil media in place on both flat and sloped roofs.
Second, the mat allows for green roof and living wall plant roots to anchor to a permanently attached roofing component, reducing the potential for blow-off during wind events.
There are many materials a mat may be fabricated from, both natural and synthetic substances.
Consider a growing mat on your next green roof or living wall project.
