The Wide Ranging Benefits of Green Roofs

With the constant progression of urban growth and increased levels of density in cities across the world have created, and continue to create, “urban jungles”. Such a concentration of structures and people can often lead to a sense of oppression, stark, noisy, unnatural blocks of concrete and glass.

Aerial shots of cityscapes show up vast swathes of flat roof and concrete decks – empty, ugly, impermeable wasted space.

Easy Green Roof Installation

The benefits of constructing a green roof include:

  • Improving the local environment by providing wildlife habitats
  • Absorbing CO2, pollution and particulates from the atmosphere
  • Improving sound and vibration insulation
  • Improving thermal insulation
  • Reducing the amount and speed of rainwater run-off by around 50% and forming part of a SUDS design
  • Reducing the “heat island” effect in built-up areas and helping to improve air quality and environment
  • Protecting the structure and waterproofing membrane from:
    • UV light and heat from the sun
    • impact and abrasion
    • environmental elements including extremes of temperature
    • plant and bird infestation
  • Ballasting inverted waterproofing systems
  • Optimising the structural footprint by:
    • Increasing space – providing new and attractive natural amenity areas
    • Adding floor space in often high-density developments
    • Adding focal points
    • Decreasing energy costs
    • The increasing value of the development
    • Properties with green roofs sell / rent faster rate than naked buildings
  • Making the planning process easier
  • Money saving

iDecking Revolution – Decking Installations Have Never Been Quicker & Easier

iDecking is an innovative decking system that uses an Aluminium rail substructure where the decking boards are fixed without the need for clips or screws.

Our patented systems EasyClick and EasyChange simplify and revolutionise all the traditions of installing systems used all over the world.

Wide-Ranging Benefits

  • No Screws: iDecking does not require spacers, nails or screws, unlike traditional fastening systems and techniques, drastically reducing installation time and extending the product’s lifespan. Choosing iDecking allows you to enjoy walking on a totally clean, smooth deck surface.
  • More Durability: Our extremely durable and resilient aluminium rail system and nylon clips provide greater strength and durability, unlike the traditional wood substructure which is prone to chipping and rotting.
  • Avoid Water Stagnation: The unique design of the nylon clips of the iDecking systems avoid contact between the aluminium profile and the ground, allowing the substructure to be laid in any direction and letting the water flow away.
  • Faster Installation: iDecking systems are designed to speed up deck installation times – in most cases up to 5 times faster!
