Tegola Canadese Vivo Roof system green roof: nature and sustainability

In over forty years of activity, Tegola Canadese has completed some of the most outstanding roofs in the world, taking advantage of its extensive experience in waterproofing and thermal insulation. Nowadays, the green roof systems are a further step towards full living comfort. The beauty of green roofs and terraces has a positive effect on living comfort and the quality of life, in addition to several environmental and functional advantages for the individual buildings and metropolitan areas. Tegola Canadese has developed particularly adaptable green roofing systems, conceived to the smallest detail to adapt to the various needs of all kinds of urban and rural environments.

Bringing the green to the city landscape with solutions suitable for all situations

Green roofs not only contribute to changing the looks of city centres, but also and foremost to elevating our urban landscapes to high sustainability levels. Bringing the green to our city centres, as part of the daily life of their inhabitants, is the object that Tegola Canadese wants to fulfil with its system, which allows designers to create both small and large green spaces. Meeting the living needs of those who want to follow a “green” life style through a Tegola Canadese green roof means bringing nature in, integrating it with the living elements of the home, and changing the perception of a specific space.

Tegola Vivo Roof system materials

TEFOND 3D TG

Drainage geocomposite consisting of a monofilament drainage core with high compression strength thermally bonded to a filter geotextile. With its total mass per unit area of 700 g/m2, it delivers the aeration required between the soil and water storage layer.

MAXISTUD F

20 mm high density polyethylene (HDPE) studded membrane with high compression strength (130 kN/m2) and 5.8 l/m2 approximate water retention capacity. The presence of top holes ensures vertical drainage of any excess water, with horizontal drainage capacity of 2.50 l/(m*s).

TEGOTEX

300 g/m2 non-woven geotextile obtained from white recycled polyester fibres: provides separation between the water storage and drainage layer and the waterproofing, ensuring a further protection to the latter.

SAFETY TPO

Synthetic TPO modified polyolefin membrane with high root penetration resistance. Thickness 1.80 mm and ≥195N laceration resistance, with great resistance to root penetration.

SAFETY

Bitumen sheath:

SAFETY PLAST EPP 4 mm.
SAFETY ALU 3 mm.
SAFETY AR FLL 4 mm.

TEGOTHERM POLYISO SUPER

Patented PIR foam board with high thermal insulation characteristics: the low λD=0.023 W/mK thermal conductivity value is possible thanks to the new gas-proof multilayer coating, which keeps the thermal insulation performance levels unchanged in the long term

STYRODUR® 4000CS

Extruded polystyrene insulating board with great insulating properties and high compression strength, guaranteed for up to 50 years. Styrodur® 4000 CS guarantees dimensional stability with temperature and humidity changes and can withstand extended exposure to water

Create a green hanging garden

  • Quality of life also means living in spaces that are not only comfortable, but that can provide an environment as natural and alive as possible, also in the city.
  • A green roofing system allows to expand the living space, making the most of areas that before were out of reach, and to transform the roof into an actual garden, an area that is alive and that can be used in many different ways, where beauty, well-being and joy of living take centre stage.
  • Walking barefoot on the grass has a great beneficial effect on the mood. But the green space can also be used to grow and harvest early produce, herbs such as lavender, sage, bay, oregano, basil coriander, goji berries and so on.
  • Even a very small green space in the city can have great decorative value. Moreover: thanks to the photosynthesis process, bushes and medium trees can produce oxygen, contributing to a better air quality.
  • More “green” in the city will make buildings alive, with surfaces that grow and change with the seasons, at the same time giving back to the earth as greenery the same amount of soil occupied by the building.
