Oikosteges 1 (OS1) and Oikosteges 8 (OS8) offer substantial comparative advantage when measured alongside older technologies and methods of roof and wall greening and when compared with methods, systems and products used in other countries outside the Mediterranean because our approaches were developed in the Mediterranean for the Mediterranean both in terms of safety in this earthquake prone area and in terms of the challenging, extreme climate found here. All done while maintaining the many important benefits provided by green roofs and green walls.
Feather Lightweight : OS1 has a saturated wet weight of 50Kg/M2 of coverage. OS8 can be made to weigh in at as low as 20 Kg/M2 wet. Consequently both systems are ideal for use in earthquake zones, where permitted loading is limited.
Rapid installation : Both OS1 and OS8 are comprised of modular components, which allow rapid deployment. Oikosteges technical crews can install OS1 at a rate of 1000M2 every 2 days. OS8 does not require specialist installation and can be installed even more rapidly,
Value for money : Οikosteges have little or no requirement for irrigation once established, no requirement for further inputs and no requirement for maintenance. This limits costs to the initial investment, making the total cost budgeting clear from the beginning.
Performance guarantees : Every Oikostegi 1 Green Roof comes with a two year, written, ecosystem performance guarantee and a fifteen year, written waterproof guarantee. During the first two years after installation Oikosteges perform regular inspections to ensure the correct development of the ecosystem.
