Green Roofing by Xero Flor America

In the midst of Greenbuild’s International Conference & Expo, held from November 18–22 in Philadelphia, AN sought out the newest and most innovative sustainable building products.

This vegetated green roofing solution (above) rolls out in a mat system for easy application, as well as rapid access for repairs.
