The trend towards cultivated green spaces on roof continues unabated. The environmental aspect has become increasingly important over recent years, besides the roof functions that have always been crucial, including protection and comfort. Our innovative green roof system – which is compatible with the RIB-ROOF metal roofs Evolution and Speed 500 – delivers an optimised solution in this area.

RIB-ROOF metal roofing systems and KNAUFINSULATION, one of the leading manufacturers of insulation materials, jointly developed the green roof complete system. This system is particularly suitable for flat and low-pitched roofs in residential construction and for commercial properties in urban areas.
A green roof on the Zambelli RIB-ROOF Evolution and Speed 500 metal roofing systems has immense advantages:
The Zambelli green roof enables reduction in precipitation runoff and its delay. This leads to lower construction costs as it eliminates the need for rainwater retention basins, among other things.
In the city, the air temperature in summer is about 5 to 7° Celsius higher than in rural areas. The Zambelli green roof is one of the most effective ways to reduce the heat in urban centres.
The complete system from Zambelli is characterized by a very low degree of flammability.
Green roofs do not need much care. Maintenance measures (mowing the vegetation, fertilising, checks) only have to be carried out once to three times a year.
Cultivating the roof can triple its service life by a factor of three. The additional green roof structure protects against mechanical damage, UV radiation and extreme temperatures.
The green roof cuts heating and cooling costs by up to 25% and 75% respectively.
A cultivated roof insulates sound and therefore creates quieter living spaces.
The green roofs by Zambelli make a significant contribution to reducing CO2. 1 m2 A green roof can bind approx. 5 kg of CO2 each year.
Cultivating metal roof helps to bind fine dust, smog, heavy metals and volatile organic compounds from the air. Air quality improves considerably.
Rooftop cultivation makes urban spaces more efficient. These spaces can be used as recreational areas and provide an additional habitat for a wide variety of animal and plant species.
