WHAT IS CHEKAD© ROOF GARDEN

Leaving aside in this discussion the ancient history and tales about Babylonian hanging gardens, the present function of the hanging garden will be analyzed from an architectural, urban, and environmentally. 

Today, technology provides methods and materials that make the roof garden accessible from an economically and appropriate in almost every situation, giving the possibility of installing them even on terraces which are not designed for the purpose, from architecture point of view.

Roof (and Vertical) gardens have become increasingly popular by many people around the world, especially by those who love greenery but do not have the space necessary for a classic-style garden. At home, on the balcony or terrace, choosing to make a garden is increasingly fashionable, especially since the advantages are very high and, in principle, outweigh any disadvantages.

CHEKAD© is providing the Portable-Modular method to increase intensive roof gardens in the quantity and quality of greenery spaces within cities, without facing old-fashioned setbacks and difficulties of this process. But it designed many facilities and uses various compatible plants, in these cases, live on a substrate constructed pots and frames.

There are two types of roof loadings when a building is being constructed. Dead load and live load to the weight of the roof structure itself and any permanent structures on that roof. Unfortunately, most formerly constructed roofs are not designed to support an “intensive garden” with a massive substrate layer and big plants which increases Dead loads and threatens the structure.

But CHEKAD© has overcome the problem for more than a decade and made the structure against the amount of dead load caused by the roof garden. The best way to create a green space on the roof is to use the Portable-Modular method as a detached live load.

In this method, ready pre-made planters and flower boxes are used to implement the roof garden. According to the type of use, the planters can have a wide green surface or beautiful and tall shrubs. In fact, the difference between this method and the previous masonry method and styles is not only outstanding in terms of beauty, but in terms of structure, constructing speed, safety, diversity, modernity, etc.

The green roof has not only an aesthetic-ornamental function, it is an operation of ecological architecture that brings numerous advantages to the building and the environment. It increases the thermal support of the roof and is an excellent insulation for the floors under it which CHEKAD steel meshing whit no bolting to the roof and also with a considerable economic advantage in terms of savings on energy consumption (up to 25% according to the various researches.)

It has been shown that green roofs can play an important role in reducing pollution, however, proportionate to the biomass present on the roof, partially reduces urban pollution, this feature is not specific to the technology but plants have to break down pollutants and suspended dust.

This is important to know that most cities have their air polluted and contain too much carbon dioxide emitted from buildings, nearby factories or industries and even motor vehicles. CHEKAD© Green roofs can be a great help such urban centers by absorbing the carbon dioxide from the air and release more oxygen in return, creating a healthier and greener urban environment for cities and people.

ADVANTAGES AND DRAWBACKS

  • Reduces Temperature

If a building’s rooftop garden is large enough, it can reduce the temperature of the building. As people might suffer from high temperature during hot seasons around the world and accordingly due to the global warming.

A big reason rooftops are so hot is the materials that it is constructed from and the fact that it is most likely in direct sun, soaking up all those rays. If the plants are spread out or have enough of them on the roof garden, there should be a limitation for the amount of direct sunlight by absorption and shadows that hits the roof and therefore reduces the overall temperature of the building.

An interesting issue to design a green roof is that the plants are green in four seasons, without the need for annual maintenance and planting.

Rooftop Garden drawbacks

 

  • The most important drawback about constructing a rooftop garden is considering the dead load of the building. In many case it badly effects the whole building. CHEKAD© Portable-Modular system allows the building to carry live load only. Since every part of the mechanism is pre-made and ready, and also a permanent mobility, there would be no concern about the loading of the building issue.
  • Some obvious problems include having to take care of the plants and all the responsibilities that come with it. Owning a rooftop garden can also be difficult to water if there is no outside water source. CHEKAD© Portable-Modular provides drip irrigation for the plants as it would be a more reasonable way for water issue.
  • Another drawback is the fact that you are limited to certain plants which they require longer root base which are not possible to grow in a short soil depth.

CHEKAD© Portable-Modular designs functional tree box for growing plants up to three meter height and half a meter root which will make a roof garden more aesthetic and natural.

  • A roof garden might increase the possibility of damping the roof due to the plant irrigations and heavy rains. CHEKAD designs possible slope of the roof by meshing and making decks for foot path, leading water away from the roof top.
  • CHEKAD© is using plastic wood which is durable from catching fire and will not spread it like natural wood.
