A green roof, or living roof, is a roof that is partially or completely covered with vegetation, planted over a waterproof membrane. They serve several purposes for buildings such as absorbing rainwater, reducing stormwater runoff, providing insulation, creating a habitat for wildlife and mitigating the heat island effect. Water is stored by the substrate and taken up by plants where it is returned to the atmosphere by transpiration and evaporation. When installed correctly many green roofs can contribute to LEED points.
The NuDrain Green Roof System is a high flow, dimpled drainage core. The core is perforated, then bonded to top root resistant filter fabric and bottom protection fabric, specifically designed for green roof applications. The top root resistant filter fabric prevents roots from affecting the...
Nilex's NuDrain Sheet Drain materials replace or reduce the natural drainage aggregate used against structures such as retaining walls, foundation walls, bridge abutments, lagging walls and soil-nailing applications...

I want to thank you for getting things organized as quickly as you did for us and for the follow up calls and site visits that allowed us to get this work done and meet our schedule dates for the road work. As well, your product knowledge and ability to provide the technical support when dealing with the consultants was a major help in getting the system approved and installed correctly.
Not only was there a substantial cost savings realized by the client, there was also a benefit to the road structure as well. The original design road structure number was 3.780 and a calculated traffic (ESALs) of 2,147,000. The revised road structure number using the TX5 is 4.260 and a calculated traffic (ESALs) of 4,593,000.
Nilex was an invaluable asset in the successful completion of the Troutbrooke Drive Slope Stabilization project in Toronto, by providing engineering assistance, installation training and continuous on and off site technical support.
The CULTEC system was simple to install. We will be recommending, and looking forward to using the Cultec system for future projects.
We love you guys for getting this project [Energy Environmental Experiential Learning (EEEL) Building Grounds] completed in the timelines required.
