Aquamodul Oasis®

Flat roofs are versatile environments with unique characteristics and have the capability to fulfil a variety of functions.

Flat roofs should ideally be designed as multi-functional spaces used for amenity, leisure, biodiversity, agriculture and renewable energy generation. The roof finishes associated with these uses can now accommodate the inclusion of blue roof sustainable drainage systems through the introduction of the Aquamodul Oasis® multi-functional hydroactive roof system.

Aquamodul Oasis® blue roof system is a multi-functional hydroactive roof system combining four technological functions that provide rainwater retention, natural irrigation, rainwater attenuation and multi-purpose surfacing on the roof. It is calculated that 80% of the rainwater retained within in the Aquamodul Oasis® Hydrostock retention cell network will be used to naturally irrigate intensive, extensive or biodiverse living roof finishes installed above the finished system, thus eliminating the need for independent irrigation systems and reducing reliance on drinking water for irrigation.

Aquamodul Oasis® blue roof sustainable drainage systems are designed for use with Axter Force®Dalle roof waterproofing systems in a warm, cold or inverted roof construction. Aquamodul Oasis® blue roof systems are also suitable for installation in conjunction with Axter’s unique Wilotekt®-Plus Hot Melt structural waterproofing system in a cold or inverted roof construction.

When designing inverted warm blue roofs advice provided within BS 6229 : 2018 and the National Federation of Roofing Contractors (NFRC) technical guidance note for the construction and design of blue roofs should be followed.
