Xero Flor Advantages
With German engineering, more than 10 worldwide patents, more than 40 years of R&D, and tens of thousands of flourishing installations that cover hundreds of millions of square feet in North America and all around the world, Xero Flor America makes it simple… The smartest green roof system in the world – manufactured, grown, and supported in the U.S.A.
Simply stated, Xero Flor America offers significant advantages…
Superior Technical Design – In contrast to other pre-vegetated mat systems, with Xero Flor, the flexible carrier stays intact. The result? A strong, durable mat with a carrier layer that does not decompose. If the roof needs to be accessed, Xero Flor mats can be rolled up and then rolled back into place. That is simply smarter. And, it saves time and money.
Unmatched Sustainability – Only Xero Flor green roof mats are Cradle to Cradle (C2C) Certified for sustainability by the Cradle to Cradle Products Innovation Institute.
Manufactured in the U.S.A. – Other green roof systems use materials from other countries. For every Xero Flor installation in the U.S., every component is 100 percent American-made.
Locally Grown – Xero Flor America grows pre-vegetated mats on independent, local farms across the U.S. Wherever Xero Flor is installed, the plants are adapted to the regional climate for a healthy, sustainable green roof. Plus, by using local horticultural suppliers, Xero Flor America supports local economies, reduces shipping costs, and decreases the system’s carbon footprint.
Full-Grown Plants – Xero Flor plants are grown for 9-12 months. Before they go up on a roof, the mats have extensive vegetative coverage with plants that are mature and full-grown. Xero Flor establishes instant green roofs that are immediately functional and beautiful and successful for the long term with little maintenance.
Greater Plant Diversity – Xero Flor offers more plant variety than other pre-vegetated mat systems. Increased plant variety promotes biodiversity, supports a dynamic plant community on the rooftop, and results in a green roof that more stably adapts to the environmental conditions of each individual installation.
Proven Performance – Xero Flor’s superiority has been demonstrated in tens of thousands of installations worldwide. In Europe, where the green roof industry is long established, Xero Flor is the system of choice. In the U.S., for more than ten years, Xero Flor has been selected for the largest and most challenging projects, including the massive green roofs on Ford’s Dearborn Truck Plant and the Javits Convention Center.
