Lightweight and low maintenance

Lightweight and low maintenance

Starting at only 49 kg/m(10psf) at full saturation, Xeroflor lightweight systems are perfect for retrofits. Easy to install, the thin, flexible layers are retractable and replaceable, making roof membrane access simple. Also, they need very little maintenance, saving money in the long term.

Saving water and energy

The lightweight, absorbent retention layers in Xeroflor's green roof systems capture rainfall and filter out pollutants – so there’s less run-off, and it’s cleaner. Plus, the plants and growing medium moderate heat flow between the building and its environment, reducing air-conditioning costs and saving energy.
