The Solution

Fosroc India proposed a complete waterproofing solution for landscape waterproofing with Proofex PGP system.

A successful, functional and aesthetic landscape can only be delivered throughholistic design of a complete system. Inappropriate interface, poor installation, andinadequate product selection can create weak points that are expensive to correct.

Waterproofing

The waterproofing membrane forms the core part of the landscape and must provide permanent barrier that retains long-term resistance to root penetration

Landscape Waterproofing

Selection of membrane type must consider factors such as structural loading, substrate type and material, fixing preferences and design detailing. This detailingto perimeters, outlets, upstands and protrusions through the podium slab & depth of the green roof build up. Durabality of the waterproofing system is one of the key factor in selection of Proofex PGP system

Drainage System

The second key design consideration is the drainage requirement. For flat orshallow green roofing particularly, care must be taken to ensure that rainwater isadequately drained to prevent potentially harmful pooling

PRODUCTS

  • Proofex PGP
  • Thioflex 600L

The Benefits

Proofex PGP systemyielde many benefits due to which the product has been so successful in this project

Aesthetics

Landscaping improves the aesthetics of the surrounding area with the presence of lush green environment. A green roof can transform an underused and functionalarea into an attractive feature, such as a garden or open space that can be visitedand enjoyed by building occupants.

Additional energy savings

Green Roofing
Green roofing acts as a thermal insulator to protect buildings from high externaltemperatures in hot climates and retaining heat in colder climates. In hot climates green roofing also helps in coolingsurrounding areas, landscaping also have benefits in storm water management. Rain water iscaptured and held within the growing media for release back into the atmospherethrough evaporation. This decreases the amount of water run-off into local watersystems; by delaying and reducing peak storm water run-off rates and volumes,lower loading is placed on drainage systems.
