Ecodaken: Reduces urban heat island impact

ADVANTAGES

Efficiency: Smart Investment in Your Roof

A green roof extends the life of your roof significantly. Because a green roof insulates it saves energy. Moreover, it is almost maintenance free and easy to install. Green roofs reduce noise pollution but can also function as sound proofing. Subsidies are now available to help you realize a green roof.

Ecological: Install Your Own Green Lung

By the absorbing capacity a green roof absorbs excess water runoffs. A green roof improves air quality and raises oxygen production. It reduces the urban heat island impact in our cities.  Creating an ecolint on unprecedented altitude, it encourages biodiversity.

Aesthetically: Pleasing the Eye

Green rooftops are inviting and pleasing for the eye. The greening of our urban environment from above monotonous mass of the black roof landscapes and contributes to our general wellbeing and health.

Reduces urban heat island effect

In the concentarions of building and paved areas in cities leads to increased temperatures and increased poluted air. As a result city temperatures differ considerably with surrounding areas. That difference can amount to 3 ºC. On a hot summer night the temperature of a black, bitumen roof reaches 80 ºC. Together these roofs create the phenomenon of urban heat islands that heat up the urban environment dangerously. In the summer vegetated roofs remain at a pleasant temperature of 25 ºC. Green roofs contribute to liveable cities that help reduce urban heat islands and thus reduce climate change effects.
