Roof terrace flooring on pedestals 

Pedestals are perfect for roof walkway and terrace floorings. The reason is that roofs often do not have the load-bearing capacity to carry the weight of the base layer, the bedding material and the flooring, and the material is also awkward to transport and distribute with this design. On the other hand, it is easy to use the well-known ZinCo Elefeet® pedestals that are now being launched on the market in a new and expanded version that includes a rail system.

Parisian roof terrace at the Pavillon d’Armenonville

The Pavillon d’Armenonville in Paris offers an exceptional and prestigious backdrop for corporate and private events. The architecturally appealing building hosts guests in six lounges and in a stylish 515 m² roof garden. A host of different vegetables, herbs and edible flowers are grown there in 26 plant beds in which the ZinCo system build-up “Urban Farming” has been installed. In this way, the garden delivers tasty ingredients, fresh from the rooftop, for the gourmet kitchen of the caterer and event manager, Butard Enescot.

Versatile and extremely flexible

When properly tailored to suit the building, solar energy systems on roofs have huge potential. Today’s systems are perfectly designed for minimum installation effort and maximum yield from operation. It is for this very reason that photovoltaic systems, in particular, are used increasingly in combination with green roofs, as the latter produce considerable synergy effects thanks to their superimposed load and low ambient temperature.

Amager Resource Centre Copenhagen, Denmark

In Copenhagen, an audacious vision for the design of a waste-to-energy plant has become a reality in a highly impressive manner. Since opening at the start of October 2019, the impressive Amager Resource Centre, with its approx. 16,000 m² of roof area, has provided any amount of skiing fun with its four ski lifts.

Soho House Amsterdam with “Stormwater Management Roof”

Relaxing on a lounger, bathing in the pool with a 360° panoramic view of Amsterdam or simply having a cool drink at the bar? The exclusive design of the roof garden at Soho House Amsterdam provides 900 m² of luxury at a lofty height and in addition to that, makes a valuable contribution to ecology and sustainability.

Residential development Noltemeyer Hoefe in Braunschweig

In matters of ecology and sustainability, designers and architects are likely to pay increasing attention to roofs. The huge potential here is illustrated by the residential development, Noltemeyer Hoefe in Braunschweig, with its 5,780 m² of green areas, terraces, pathways and driveways, where cars are parked out of sight in the underground garage.

The 5-star luxury GD Victoria Hotel by the Grupo Fedola on the Costa Adeje is in one of the most prestigious tourist regions of Tenerife and is spectacularly impressive with its 1000 m² of steep pitched green roof – among the steepest of its kind in Europe. Colourful, droughtresistant flowering plants rise up on both sides of the building and along all seven storeys. As this project is having such an impact on the entire green roof world far beyond the Canary Islands, it has received the “Green Roof Influencer” award.

No other construction concept creates quite the same diversity of benefits for buildings, people and the environment as the green roof. The contribution of these roofs to sustainable building in the 21st century, not to mention their variety of uses, is simply incalculable.

Fallnet® Safety Railing ASG

A workplace at height on a roof should provide not only a wonderful view but above all safety, as no-one should be able to fall off it.

Everything is fine during the construction phase of the building as the scaffolding provides protection for all works. However, once the scaffolding has been removed, proper fall protection measures have to be implemented for all subsequent works on the roof. Every flat roof has to be accessed for maintenance purposes, even if the roof is only covered in gravel.

Stormwater Management Roofs are not some futuristic vision but an indispensable part of urban planning for the future. A Stormwater Management Roof stores large volumes of rainwater and releases it with a time delay into the sewer system. It is a tried and tested way of reducing the risk of flooding in times when heavy rain events are on the increase.
