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, XeroFlor North America makes it simple... The smartest green roof system in the world - manufactured, grown, and supported in the U.S.A and Canada.
Simply stated, XeroFlor North America offers significant advantages...
Superior Technical Design
In contrast to other pre-vegetated systems, with XeroFlor, there is a flexible carrier option that stays intact. The result? A strong, durable mat with a carrier layer. If the roof needs to be accessed, XeroFlor mats can be rolled up and then rolled back into place. That is simply smarter. And, it saves time and money.
Only XeroFlor 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. and Canada
Other green roof systems use materials from overseas. For every XeroFlor installation in North America, every component is 100% Canadian or American-made.
XeroFlor North America grows pre-vegetated mats and modular systems on local farms across America and Canada. Wherever XeroFlor is installed, the plants are adapted to the regional climate for a healthy, sustainable green roof. Plus, by using local horticulture suppliers, XeroFlor North America supports local economies, reduces shipping costs, and decreases the system's carbon footprint.
XeroFlor 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. XeroFlor establishes instant green roofs that are immediately functional and beautiful and successful for the long term with little maintenance.
Greater Plant Diversity
XeroFlor 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.
XeroFlor's superiority has been demonstrated in tens of thousands of installations worldwide. In Europe, where the green roof industry is long established, XeroFlor is the system of choice. In the U.S. and Canada, for more than 15 years, XeroFlor has been selected for the largest and most challenging projects, including the massive green roofs on Ford's Dearborn Truck Plant and the Jacob Javits Convention Center.
