Root Barrier is for green roof construction.
Protection of a roofs waterproof layer from roots in Green Roof applications is important for the longevity of the roof system. If the waterproof layer doesn’t already have root resistant qualities then a root barrier should be introduced. In these situations Safeguard Root Barrier can be installed on top of the primary waterproofing system to provide a suitable root barrier.
In addition to providing a root barrier layer for green roofs, Safeguard Root Barrier can also be used to provide efficient protection against invasive root growth for urban infrastructures - e.g. piping,pavements, paved areas, roads, water and sewage networks, cabling etc...
