Green roofs have been playing an important role at the Airport Schiphol. Already back in the 80s the Schiphol Plaza, the central entrance hall, was planted extensively. But now there was need for renovation. The renovation works represented a greater challenge, as the approximately 8,600 m² large roof has a slope of 4–10°. Several triangular skylights interrupt the large roof surface, their sloped back sides are greened as well. The system build-up “SolarVert®” was the perfect solution for the desired combination of a green roof and a solar system. This system solution developed especially for large roof areas is based on the drainage and water storage element Fixodrain® XD 20 with a filter sheet attached on its top side, delivered in rolls. To take account of the existing roof slope, the Fixodrain® XD 20 was previously equipped with a protective rubber mat as anti-slip protection on the underside.
