New artificial grass system aims to revitalise roof spaces

EverRoof® an accredited artificial grass roof system, has been designed to help transform unusable and often ugly, flat roof spaces into beautiful green multi-use areas

Evergreens UK, which manufactures EverRoof®, claims it is the only fire-rated and wind-tested artificial grass roofing system on the market, having been tested for wind uplift resistance of at least 100mph without lifting or showing any signs of damage or distress. 

The roofing system has been developed to look green and lush all year round and to transform flat roofs into all-year round areas that maximise the outdoor space of a building. Several commercial projects demonstrate that EverRoof® work well alongside living green roof spaces, providing low maintenance access route to areas requiring more regular upkeep.

EverRoof®’s multi-layered system combines the award-winning Which? Best Buy Wonder Yarn® artificial grass with different underlay and drainage options, depending on the roof type.

The product also provides water attenuation and adds another insulation layer, which could save consumers on their energy bills and extend the life of a roof.

EverRoof® was recently installed at Wonder Yarn at Castle View Retirement Village for independent living in Windsor. This new development with stunning views over Windsor Castle was specially designed to incorporate a communal garden on its roof. 

The development’s iconic Sky Lounge and Bar opens out on to the fabulous new green area where residents can relax, socialise, play games and enjoy time with family and friends. 

Ruth Wilson, Sales Manager for Castle View said: “The installation of EverRoof® has been an excellent addition to this landmark new development, maximising the upward space and setting the standard for later-in-life living.”

Temi Kucuk Business Development Manager for the EverRoof® brand, said: “Our pioneering systems are the first of their kind on the market, offering customers peace of mind with its accreditations and credentials as the only systems which adhere to British and European roof safety standards.
