Shield Membranes’ range of living roofs allows clients a wide range of aesthetic appearances and geological benefits.
We can design, supply and install all of the ShieldLIVING range of systems.
The benefits are mainly to improve the aesthetic appearance of the area however from a technical standpoint it provides enhanced acoustic, thermal and ambient air quality. This system is widely used on new developments but can also be incorporated to existing buildings.
The ShieldBROWN system is a low maintenance planting build up that requires little to no irrigation as it is a made up of recycled materials mixed into the growing medium.
This type of living area is intended to create a natural wasteland that becomes the basis for local fauna and flora to intervene into the self-germinate substrate.
The system begins as a blank canvas but over time along with the building life, the top of the substrate will slowly develop with local vegetation through the influence of its surroundings.
The main benefit of this build up is that it requires very little maintenance as it is self sustained and self germinating.
These are plug and plant wildflower or sedum blanket mixes that require maintenance from time to time, however best results are achieved through irrigation. They can also be left to naturally develop.
They are designed for sedum or wildflower blanket and plug & plant system with a build-up of 70-150mm.
This option allows for a greater assortment of vegetation which can be pre-selected to suit the location, roof top growing conditions, colour designs or biodiversity. Individual undeveloped plants are planted into the substrate on request.
Similar to brown roofs, ShieldDIVERSE is a bio-diverse green roof system that encourages the growth of local plants and provide the perfect habitat for insects, birds and other local wildlife with improved aesthetic through sedum plugs manually placed to influence growth onto the system.
This can provide the necessary shelter for endangered species that would otherwise be displaced by building footprint.
ShieldINTENSIVE provides the most aesthetically pleasing living area finish. This is done through manual plug and plants along with a variation of wildflower/sedum mixes, making it the most vibrant and aesthetically pleasing of all living area finishes.
This is however the most costly build-up due to its high demand for maintenance and irrigation. This build up is most suitable for more complex large scale areas.
Shield Membranes are able to supply and install solutions for podium areas, including all wildlife, paved and communal spaces. Please see ShieldSCAPE for further information.
