Welcome to ZinCo, your Specialist for Innovative, Durable and Sustainable Green Roofs
It is not only the many and varied benefits of green roofs that inspire architects and planners throughout the world, but the seemingly endless opportunities to design and redefine roofs, giving character to individual buildings and entire areas. Creative urban planners are increasingly identifying roof space as a hugely under-utilized urban resource capable of assisting in counteracting the loss of natural living spaces.
Green Roofs are Extending the Variety of Contemporary Architecture
A golf course on a company building, a roof top off-road vehicle test track, a colourful roof garden or flowers blooming on your garage, virtually anything is possible with the correct green roof specification! With ZinCo green roof systems, there is virtually no limit to green roof design. See for yourself!

“Managing to achieve the same type of landscape on a roof as on the ground”. With this principle in mind, ZinCo supplies the product Stabilodrain® SD 30 which allows for the installation of permanently reliable walkways and driveways on roofs.
The combination of green roof and solar energy is not in trend for no reason. It is already well known that this combination can produce significant synergy effects: the green roof provides the superimposed load required to protect the system against wind uplift. Therefore, there is no need for roof penetration or heavy individual point loads. In addition, green roofs provide for a lower ambient temperature compared with bare or gravelled roofs and as a result they help to increase the yield from a solar energy system.
