The Equus Insulated Green Roof system encompasses a two layer waterproofing membrane, a vapour barrier and thermal insulation with a growing medium to create an ecological and aesthetic system suitable for use on metal, concrete or plywood substrates.
The system is ideal for roof gardens and/or similar situations including planter boxes and podium levels, however predominantly where soil overlays and plants and grass is to thrive. There are several benefits to having an Equus system for a green roof concept; the two layer waterproof membrane is formulated to be root resistant, the system provides thermal and sounds insulation and provides a natural filter for rainwater.
- The prepared substrates are primed with De Boer Duo Bitumen Primer
- Either Deboplast 2.5mm T/F C175 or Deboflex 2.5 T/F C175 basesheet is rolled out evenly and torched onto primed surface as a vapour barrier
- Equus PIR insulation board is installed as per detailed manufacturer’s instructions
- Basesheet of either Deboplast 2.5 mm T/F C175 or Deboflex 2.5 mm T/F C175 is then loose-laid evenly over PIR Board and fixed in place as per the project specific De Boer wind uplift documentation
- A capsheet of usually DuO HT 4 Slates/F C180 Landscape is then laid out in the same manner, overtop of the basesheet, with the laps offset to prevent coincidence
- Specific detailing work around outlets, upstands or anything above or below the roofs surface is then added
Project specific specifications are designed to meet service requirements
