Garden Roof Rock Wool Assembly

Garden Roof® Rock Wool Assembly

To provide enhanced stormwater capabilities and lower assembly weights, Hydrotech offers its Garden Roof® Rock Wool Assembly. Originally created for its insulative qualities, rock wool has long been used in the horticulture industry for growing plants. Its ability to store a great volume of water increases the stormwater capacity of a Garden Roof® while keeping the overall assembly height thinner and the assembly weight to a minimum. Rock wool comes in several types however Hydrotech only works with needled rock wool from Knauf Insulation. Needled rock wool does not have the added binders of other rock wool products that can degrade and decrease its effectiveness in a short time.

Project specific test data for LiteTop® and Rock Wool is available by contacting Hydrotech at 800-877-6125 or gardenroof@hydrotechmembrane.ca.

Additional information about the Garden Roof® Rock Wool Assembly, details and specifications are available for download in the Resource Center.
