In the U.S., Xero Flor has been proven on many of the largest green roofs in the country including the single biggest on any one building, the green roof on the Dearborn Truck Plant at Fords River Rouge Complex.
Xero Flor makes it simple The smartest green roof system in the world manufactured, grown and supported in the U.S.A.
A green roof is a supplemental roofing system that covers a conventional roof with a layer of vegetation. There are two basic types of green roofs.
Extensive green roofs are less than six inches deep and are typically 2-4 inches in depth. Their light weight makes them ideal for retrofit projects on older buildings or any structure with limits on the total weight load. Generally, extensive green roofs require minimal maintenance and can thrive with little supplemental irrigation in most temperate climate zones.
Intensive green roofs are deeper, which allows for more types of plants and increases potential stormwater retention. Heavier and more expensive than extensive green roofs, intensive systems are higher maintenance and require more irrigation.
The Xero Flor Green Roof System is extensive. The key component of the Xero Flor system are thin, lightweight, pre-vegetated mats. Xero Flor green roof mats incorporate a proven, textile-based design developed in Germany and improved over decades of ongoing R&D. In Europe, where the green roof industry is long-established, Xero Flor is the technology of choice. In the U.S., Xero Flor has been installed in 38 states since 2002.

Simply stated, Xero Flor America offers significant advantages
Superior Technical Design In contrast to other pre-vegetated mat systems, with Xero Flor, the flexible carrier stays intact. The result? A strong, durable mat with a carrier layer that does not decompose. If the roof needs to be accessed, Xero Flor mats can be rolled up and then rolled back into place. That is simply smarter. And, it saves time and money.
Unmatched Sustainability Only Xero Flor green roof mats are Cradle to Cradle (C2C) Certified for sustainability by the Cradle to Cradle Products Innovation Institute.
Manufactured in the U.S.A. Other green roof systems use materials from other countries. For every Xero Flor installation in the U.S., every component is 100 percent American-made.
Locally Grown Xero Flor America grows pre-vegetated mats on independent, local farms across the U.S. Wherever Xero Flor is installed, the plants are adapted to the regional climate for a healthy, sustainable green roof. Plus, by using local horticultural suppliers, Xero Flor America supports local economies, reduces shipping costs, and decreases the systems carbon footprint.
Full-Grown Plants Xero Flor plants are grown for 9-12 months. Before they go up on a roof, the mats have extensive vegetative coverage with plants that are mature and full-grown. Xero Flor establishes instant green roofs that are immediately functional and beautiful and successful for the long term with little maintenance.
Greater Plant Diversity Xero Flor offers more plant variety than other pre-vegetated mat systems. Increased plant variety promotes biodiversity, supports a dynamic plant community on the rooftop, and results in a green roof that more stably adapts to the environmental conditions of each individual installation.
Proven Performance Xero Flors superiority has been demonstrated in tens of thousands of installations worldwide. In Europe, where the green roof industry is long established, Xero Flor is the system of choice. In the U.S., for more than ten years, Xero Flor has been selected for the largest and most challenging projects, including the massive green roofs on Fords Dearborn Truck Plant and the Javits Convention Center.
