EVERROOF®: THE FIRST FULLY CLASSIFIED ARTIFICIAL GREEN ROOF SYSTEMS FOR FLAT ROOFING
EverRoof® classified artificial green roof systems are the first of their kind in the UK.
First to consider the ramifications of fire risk on flat roofs.
First to consider the consequences of high speed winds.
And, most importantly, the first to develop the only fire and wind classified artificial green roof system on the market today.
EverRoof® is a division of Rutland-based Evergreens UK Group, pioneers in artificial grass for over 35 years.
ARE YOU USING THE WRONG MATERIAL, REFERENCING THE WRONG STANDARDS?
All too often, we see inappropriate use of materials for flat roofs. Not only that, the standards relied on are Bfl S1 and Cfl S1 which, simply put, only apply to fire classifications of INDOOR FLOORING and understandably should not be used for an external flat roof.
WHY DOES IT MATTER?
Above all, it matters to your rooftop’s safety. If your artificial green roof has been installed on a rooftop, podium or balcony, it needs to be a system tested for exterior flat roofs. Any other standard leaves you open to remediation costs as well as safety ramifications, litigation and potentially unthinkable consequences.
EverRoof® continue to lead the way in raising awareness of this requirement and this has been the main thrust for the team in developing and promoting the EverRoof® classified systems.
STAY SECURE AGAINST WIND, RAIN AND FIRE
An EverRoof® classified artificial green roof system ensures your project is anchored correctly, can resist wind speeds exceeding 100 miles per hour and has been classified exclusively for flat rooftops, podiums and balconies.
IS YOUR ARTIFICIAL GREEN ROOF SAFE?
The team’s depth of knowledge, technical experience and safety commitments give them the commercial edge in recommending questions you should ask when choosing an artificial green roof system:
- Is the material classified for EXTERIOR flat roofing and is the right classified system being used for the right roof type?
- Does your artificial green roof system have the correct fire and wind classifications?
- Has your Building Inspector, Fire Marshall and Insurance Company signed off on the system already installed/to be installed?
- Has it been installed by qualified professionals with the right training and blue-skilled CSCS/LISS card?
If the answer to any of these questions is NO, your roof and building could be at risk. Contact the EverRoof® team for further advice or training on these aspects.
