Blue Roof Systems

ShieldBLU drainage system is a fully warranted, modular, sustainable drainage solution. Exploiting the respective strengths of high engineered drainage systems and performance waterproofing solutions, storm-water discharge is controlled at source; providing an effective water management tool.

ShieldBLU roof system is an excellent choice for urban areas where land excavation is at a premium. Considerable project cost savings can be achieved compared to underground excavation. The ShieldBLU system can include open water surfaces on roofs, but can also be used in buried applications, such as in raised podium deck surfaces or living roofs.

Shield Membranes is able to design, supply and install ShieldBLU systems.

By combining the ShieldLIVING and ShieldSCAPE living roof variations with ShieldBLU systems, the retention of water in the living roof layers, i.e. plants, substrate and drainage/reservoir layer, complements the detention of stormwater by the blue roof to provide additional drainage capacity.
