A roof's greening must be designed for the long term with the right components and suitable vegetation. Essential prerequisites for a green roof are, on the one hand, the structural conditions and the weight of the planned greenery. While the additional burden of new buildings can be taken into account during construction, the load-bearing capacity of existing buildings must be checked by an expert.
An essential distinction is made between intensive and extensive green roofs. Furthermore, there are also mixed forms of extensive and intensive green roofs.
Extensive greening is suitable as an ecological compensation area. Extensive greening is mainly used for roof areas that cannot be used. Because of these locations, undemanding plant species should be used, such as sedum plants.
iNTERBiMS GmbH offers various extensive roof substrates to choose from:
Intensive greening is comparable to typical gardens and green spaces. Therefore these green roofs correspond to a green oasis on the roof. Flat or only slightly inclined roofs are suitable for such greenery. Depending on the structural conditions, such a green roof offers a wide range of design options, such as lawns with perennials, shrubs, and trees. It is connected with an optimal use with a somewhat higher expenditure for the care, as it corresponds to a typical garden.
iNTERBiMS GmbH offers various intensive roof substrates to choose from:
iNTERBiMS roof substrates are based on natural volcanic raw materials such as pumice and lava and quality assured compost, which is environmentally friendly. Thanks to the open-pored structure, high treading and storage stability, high frost resistance, and the balanced ratio between water permeability and storage capacity, individual greening "par excellence" is fulfilled.
Besides our blowable intensive substrates for roof greening, we also offer intensive substrates for gardening and landscaping. These are ideally suited for the creation of any planting bed. The volcanic components offer the plant world the best conditions for growth.
iNTERBiMS GmbH produces mineral / organic roof substrates for optimal roof greening. Thanks to the open-pored structure, high frost resistance, and the balanced ratio between water permeability and storage capacity, individual substrate requirements are fulfilled par excellence.
The following properties characterize INTERBIMS roof substrates:
A green roof adds an ecological and economic value to buildings and looks good too. A green roof with roof substrates offers many advantages:
A green roof consists of different layers:

All products are subject to quality control (external and internal monitoring) following the German FLL guidelines.
The FLL "Green Roof Guidelines - Guidelines for the Planning, Construction, and Maintenance of Green Roofs" were developed from the "Principles for Green Roofing" published in 1982 and revised several times since 1990. They are recognized as a benchmark set of guidelines for green roofs in Germany.
