ZinCo is a global leader in green-roof technology and yet we’re probably the most down-to-earth guys to have up on your roof. We are passionate about excellence in design. We are passionate about a job well done. We are passionate about leaving this place better than the way we found it. Green roofs that will work to offset the environmental impact of building structures, cool micro-climates by up to two degrees, capture and manage storm water and alleviate noise pollution for decades to come.
The latest in green roof technology ZinCo green roof systems have been used around the globe for many decades and in a wide range of climatic conditions. Desert, Tropical, Mediterranean, Temperate and Cold Sub-Arctic conditions.
From Singapore and Dubai to Denmark and Canada. Proven and Successful.
While there are many widely used green roof options, our research shows us “built in place” assemblies are superior in quality and performance, and we have developed one of the widest ranges of “built in place” green roof systems.
Green roofs help improve our environment ZinCo’s light weight green roofs are assembled on site, layer by layer, and designed to accommodate the specific roof it’s intending to cover. The growing medium is applied as a single layer to cover the entire area — mimicking a more natural growing environment, and resulting in healthier plants. All our systems are also engineered to exceed storm water management, wind uplift and fire codes in Canada, and we are working with the NRC to develop new wind uplift standards.
Benefits of “built in place” Cost effective Natural growth environment Easy on site installation Versatile range of layers Light weight A greener roof All systems are designed, manufactured, shipped and assembled with a greener world in mind. Assemblies are built with no vertical dividers, lowering plastic content, and reducing costs. Our roofs use the most durable recycled or plant-based plastics, and are 100% recyclable.
