Roof planting made easy


Substrate fill by hose

Extensive roof planting with a substrate of approximately 900 cubic metres of Liadrain applied on top of the root-resistant roof sealing. With a dry bulk weight of only some 0.3 g/cm³ and great dimensional and structural stability, it can not only be optimally adapted to the characteristics of each individual building but also promotes healthy plant growth. The open-pored Liadrain can store more than 80 percent of its dry weight of water, is chemically neutral, frost-resistant and non-flammable. To place only the minimum load on the roof, the Liadrain was applied using air-injection technology via hoses run from the silo wagon.
