Icopal Lightweight Systems:The Way Forward for Green Roof Technology
 A Green Roof is created when a planting scheme is established on a roofstructure. The roof can be located anywhere from ground level, usually withan underground car park beneath, to a residential or commercial roof manystoreys high. The technique is well established in continental Europe andis now growing fast in the UK, popular with planning authorities, architectsand developers alike. Icopal have now further refined the concept ofGreen Roof Design in three important ways.
is a proven solutioninstalled in over 1.6 million m
of roof gardens
The Icopal Difference
 The Icopal Green Roof provides three key benefits over other systems:
1. Minimum Roof Loading
 At the heart of the Icopal landscaping system is a specialist growing substrate called Fytocell
.Unique in the UK, this material offers performance proven over 35 years of use and has beeninstalled in over 1.6 million m
of roof gardens. This substrate is typically one-third of the weightof top soil, allowing a Green Roof to be established successfully on a lower load bearingstructure, reducing build costs.
2. Guaranteed Waterproofing Integrity 
 At Icopal we believe that the waterproofing of adjacent elements such as podium decks, DPCs ortanking should not be treated as separate projects but as part of one integrated waterproofing plan.In a number of projects there have been compatibility issues when different companies have beenconsidering seperate elements of the building waterproofing in isolation.Icopal can provide a total solution giving complete compatibility between all elements of waterproofing within the building, e.g. tanking, roof deck, podium deck, DPC and green roof waterproofing, there by guaranteeing all elements from failure.
3. The Reassurance of Single Source Supply 
Our unique holistic approach helps to eliminate fragmentation, compromised waterproofingperformance and divided responsibility that has affected some Green Roof projects. It alsoallows us to provide a single waterproofing guarantee for the entire installation, giving completepeace of mind to architects and building owners alike.
Icopal is the world leader inbuilding protection from roofright down to basement.From our UK headquarters inManchester we offer you theUK’s most complete range ofconstruction membranes,support services and insurance-backed guarantees.2
