EXTENSIVE SUBSTRATE ROOFS bauder.ie116TECHNICAL CREDENTIALSBRITISH AND EUROPEAN STANDARDSThe Bauder substrate, drainage-boards, filtration layers and green roof waterproofing systems are tested and comply with the FLL guidlines.
Extensive Substrate RoofsA traditional extensive substrate system provides for a greater depth of growing medium, thus allowing the use of a broader range of species, which may be installed by different methods, including plug planting, vegetation mat and hydroplanting.Plug PlantingThis method allows for individual immature plants or 'plugs' to be planted out into the substrate by hand which will then grow on to give good cover over the next two full growing seasons.VEGETATION MatThe installation of a pre-cultivated vegetation mat gives instant greening to the roof whilst also providing an increased water retention capacity for the system.HydroplantingThis is a fast, economical and practical method for vegetating larger roof areas. A mix of seed, plant cuttings, mulch and fertiliser is applied on to the lightweight substrate to germinate and grow.KEY FEATURESThese features are in addition to those associated with all green roofs, see pages 108 to 109.n Greater depth of growing medium enables a broader range of species to be incorporated within the scheme.n Increased rainwater attenuation capacity when compared to a sedum blanket installation. n Cost effective on large roof areas.117 bauder.co.ukAn extensive substrate-based green roof will often incorporate a mixed vegetation scheme of low maintenance plants chosen to suit the project and location. This project incorporates shrubs, grasses, bulbs and wild flowers planted in rows into a background of low-growing sedum to create a pleasing design.Technical Guide Pages 135 -181All Bauder Green Roof Systems meet FLL GuidelinesCADSpecification SupportCAD DRAWINGSwww.bauder.co.uk/technical-centreNBS SPECIFICATIONSwww.bauder.co.uk/technical-centreTECHNICAL HELPLINET: +44 (0)1473 257671E: firstname.lastname@example.orgPROJECTS PORTFOLIOE: email@example.comW: www.bauder.co.uk/media-centreGREEN ROOFLANDSCAPING
