LiteN’Less Advanced™: Lightweight, Soilless”, Clean, Simple and Tested!
This Ottawa condo amenity space features the LiteN’Less Advanced™ vegetated system enhanced by Urbanscape making it ideal for stormwater management without excessive loading.
Tested to CAN/CSA A123.24
The LiteN’Less Advanced™ uses four core layers: the pre-vegetated Sedum Blanket, Needled Mineral Hydro Blanket, Drainage Mat and Root Barrier. The innovation is in the slight variation of these core layers to offer increased stormwater retention or decreased saturated weight, depending on the designer’s goals.
LiteN’Less Advanced™ green roof systems are “soilless” with no loose growing medium making for a quick and simple installation, and low maintenance. Pre-grown sedum blankets are grown locally, in outdoor fields, harvested like sod and installed by rolling directly on top of loose-laid base layers.
The LiteN’Less Advanced™ system installed on this amenity space retains 38 l/m2.
Create a BioBerm™ with custom plants. This is our innovative method for integrating the best of extensive and intensive green roof features – creating topographic variation and biodiversity. It provides an enhanced aesthetic over areas that are highly visible and that can support extra weight. Achieves a seamless integration of “plant-in-place” vegetation through pre-grown sedum blankets that are rolled over various depths of growing media. The sedum blankets help reduce water evaporation, soil erosion and weed growth.
LiteN’Less Advanced Key Features:
• Pre-grown, instant green with 85% vegetation coverage upon installation
• Saturated weight 50 kg/m2
• Between 8-10 species of sedum, and mosses
• Delivered in rolls: Easy to transport, install and maintain
• Premium base layers are high performing and fully customizable
• No “loose” growing medium allows for a clean, fast and simple installation
• Retractable, if necessary, for easy roof access
• Low maintenance
LiteN’Less Advanced™ uses the needled mineral hydro blanket, a new generation of mineral wool providing an alternative to the traditional variety it is free from formaldehyde, phenols, and acrylics . This reduces harmful manufacturing emissions and workplace exposures, improving the overall sustainability of buildings into which the product is incorporated.
