Vegetation mats on roofs with root-resistant sealing membranes have proved successful in practice for over 20 years

Famoflor Mat I

Vegetation mats on roofs with root-resistant sealing membranes have proved successful in practice for over 20 years. The outstanding characteristic of FamoFlor is the high pore volume of approximately 95%. Vegetation mats store about 6 times their own weight in water with a maximum weight of only 10.2 lb. per sq ft (50 kg per square meter). Built-in clay minerals as well as long-term fertilizers and various mineral substances in the vegetation mat guarantee sustainable supplies of nutrients. Different pore sizes drain, filter and store water, even during sustained dry periods, and allow plants to grow safely.
