Hurricanes, Wind Tunnel Testing, Florida Green Roofs and more
Extensive, non-irrigated green roofs for Florida and the southeastern US coastal areas. Your MetroVerde Green Roof does not require irrigation, can survive long periods of drought, inundation, both freezing and sweltering temperatures while treating stormwater, providing wildlife habitat in the Urban Core and creating a beautiful Sense of Place. Pictured above is the MV ER3 test panel at UF scheduled for wind testing in early 2010. The test panel platform is adjustable from flat up to 45 degrees. Because the system is a mat based structure - the roots are embedded into a monolithic, permanent platform - light weight - the MV ER3 weighs approximately 10 lbs per SF.
