Award-winning green roof and “green” products and systems from Icopal will showcase the company’s stand (1244) at the world’s biggest event dedicated to sustainable design, con-struction and the built environment, Ecobuild (March 3-5, Earls Court).

Icopal’s stand at the fifth annual Ecobuild will demonstrate how green roof systems from the company, which was recently accredited with ISO 14001 Environmental Management Systems, give a unique combination of benefits. These include minimum roof loadings (substrates up to a third lighter than standard top soil), integrity of waterproofing surfaces including guarantees of up to 20 years, and single source of supply.

These have all been appreciated by projects such as Horbury School, a ‘very good’ BREEAM-rated specialist language college for 1,000 pupils that was designed by NPS North East property consultants, and Culloden battlefield’s new visitor centre/museum de-signed by Gareth Hoskins’ architects.

“Green” products and systems from Icopal include extensive systems such as those for sedum, bio-diverse and meadow as well as intensive ones for lawns, trees and shrubs, hard landscaping and car parks. They also cover waterproofing for warm, cold and in-verted flat roofs including two flagship products.

Sure-Weld “green” TPO membrane does not contain any internal or external plasticisers, chlorine, bromine or halogens, and is so environmentally friendly and recyclable it is ap-proved by Greenpeace.

Roofgard FormFlash is a contemporary alternative to lead for waterproof roof flashings. Being 50% lighter than lead, it is easier to handle and form and quicker to install, and be-cause it does not have the re-sale value of its predecessor, it is less attractive to potential thieves. It is also significant where the environment is concerned, being completely free of lead, other heavy metals and PVC, and being non-toxic it is environmentally friendly.

“Green” systems also extent to Icopal subsidiary Monarfloor Acoustic Systems that has recently won a Robust Detail (Appendix A) for its system solution that halves the amount of render required for separating party cavity walls and offers a fail-save method of com-plying with Part E in modern construction, negating the need for pre-completion testing.

Monarfloor Bridgestop high-performance membrane prevents acoustic bridging commonly caused by a mortar build-up at the base of the cavity within separating party-cavity walls. In addition, only one coat of render instead of two is required as well as standard plaster-board (8kg/m˛) instead of 12.5kg/m˛ for solid Part E solution walls, saving 4.5kg/m˛ of gyp-sum-based board per m˛.

The system offers up to four cost-neutral credits for the Code for Sustainable Homes based on PCT test evidence and can be also used as part of a number of Robust Detail walls without affecting the code credits already available.

Another flagship Monarfloor product that will be on the stand at Ecobuild is Tranquilt - a highly sustainable, innovative and robust acoustic screed isolation system for party floors that is manufactured in the UK and currently at Stage C of Robust Details.

A 100% recyclable composite system comprising a layer of LRAC foam which is in itself 95% recycled, the lightweight under screed system is so workable it can be laid like carpet. Being only 10mm thick, it is supremely easy to store, transport and carry.

Icopal’s stand will be manned by specialists who can advise on design considerations such as drainage, irrigation, roof falls and safety, structural loads and wind action. Acces-sories such as drainage outlets, tree anchors, edge restraints, termination bars, filler blocks and paving supports are also available.
