American Hydrotech is a recognized leader in the development, production and distribution of premium waterproofing and roofing products. Technologies include MM6125® (hot fluid-applied rubberized asphalt), Ultimate Assembly® (open joint paver assembly), and Garden Roof® (transforming roofs and plazas into natural, landscaped environments).
American Hydrotech’s Garden Roof® allows the design professional to transform virtually any flat and most sloped roofs (up to a 45 degree pitch possible) into a landscaped environment. Designed as a lightweight, low profile system, the Garden Roof® assembly can be safely installed on roof and plaza decks engineered for as little as 15 pounds per square foot saturated dead load. And because the assembly incorporates Hydrotech's Monolithic Membrane 6125®, a proven roofing/waterproofing membrane, the building owner can be assured of a water-tight structure.
The Garden Roof® provides building owners and tenants with many ecological, technical and economic benefits. Some of the advantages of the Garden Roof® assembly include:
Suitable for extensive, intensive and sloped applications
Enhances building's appearance
Adds space for tenant use and recreation
One answer to the "Urban Heat Island" problem
Stormwater management - retain 50%-90% of a typical rain fall on the roof
