Pitched Roof
5-15° (without Anti-Slip System)

Characteristics

  • Permanent solution for green pitched roofs without a specialized Anti-Slip System.
  • For roof lengths greater than 6 m, an Anti-Slip System might have to be used.
  • Varied substrate depths and vegetation forms possible.
  • Generally suitable for the inverted roof; if applicable, minimum load for the wind up-lift protection has to be considered.

Cost factor
*Depending on the load capacity of the substructure, Optigreen "High Density (HD)" or "Low Density (LD)" substrates can be used. Weight specifications refer to saturated conditions; dry weight is approximately 60 - 70 % of the saturated weight.
**Optigreen Anti-Slip Systems need to be used in case the roof pitch exceeds 15°.
