Green roofs and roof gardens incorporating Laterlite Expanded Clay can be laid on any type of existing or new roof slab (concrete, steel decking, timber, etc.) by reducing the load on the structure (up to X% less than with traditional materials) even in case of large thickness solutions.
Depending on project requirements and climate conditions, the properties of Laterlite Expanded Clay also give green roofs and roof gardens very good thermal resistance and thermal inertia, enabling a very wide range of plant types to be grown on them (such as sedum, herbaceous perennials, lawn, shrubs, trees, etc.).
