In the opinion of the BBA, a roof incorporating the system will be unrestricted with regard to proximity to a boundary under the National Building Regulations in the following circumstances:

  • a roof garden covered with a drainage layer of gravel 100 mm thick and a soil level of 300 mm thick
  • irrigated roof garden and green roofs
  • when protected by an inorganic covering (e.g. gravel or paving slabs) listed in the Annex of Commission Decision 200/553/EC.

The performance of other specifications must be established in accordance with the documents supporting the National Building Regulations.

If allowed to dry, the plants used, may allow flame spread across the roof. this should be taken into consideration when selecting suitable plants for the roof. Appropriate planting irrigation and/or protection should be applied to ensure the overall-fire rating of the roof is not compromised.
