Green Roofing System

Firestone EPDM Green Roofing System

Extensive Green Roofing Systems, using lightweight and low maintenance sedum vegetation, can perfectly be combined with a RubberGard EPDM Roofing System. The large, seamless (up to 930 m²),lightweight and flexible EPDM membrane has passed the FLL test for resistance to root penetration. The RubberGard EPDM membrane can thus be used in conjunction with extensive vegetation and give the green roofing system a durable, reliable foundation.


  • Increased life expectancy of the roof
  • Added value and aesthetics
  • Lower energy costs
  • Easy installation and maintenance
  • Improved air quality
  • Reduction of the urban heat island effect
  • Storm water management
  • Extra soundproofing and insulation
  • A natural habitat for plants & animals


In case of bamboo, reed and other plants that exhibit rhizome formation (e.g. Phragmites Australis, Phragmites Communis, Typha,…) a separate root barrier is required or the plants should be confined within a space separated from the RubberGard EPDM membrane by a root barrier.
