Extensive greening – with us it blooms on the roof
After completion of the construction work on the logistics building, we spread a special seed mixture suitable for green roofs on an area of 3,500 square metres. Greening has both ecological and economic advantages.
The additional green space on the roof creates habitats for insects and supports biodiversity. It also makes an important contribution in terms of air quality, especially in densely populated areas: the plants bind climate-damaging CO2 and mosses in particular are able to filter the air and rid it of dust and pollutants.
In addition to these environmental aspects, a green roof also has the positive effect of acting as heat protection in summer and thermal insulation in winter. According to scientists, temperatures under a pebble roof easily rise to over 50 °C in the summer, whereas under a 15 cm thick green roof, temperatures only rise to 20-25 °C. In winter, depending on the weather, temperatures can drop to -20 °C under a normal flat roof, and to just below 0 °C under a green roof.
This is an enormously important advantage with regard to the most constant possible storage conditions for our raw materials and finished products. At the same time, we can reduce energy consumption for heating and cooling. This not only saves costs, but also energy, which in turn helps protect the climate.
