Living Surface Systems
The Archiphyte living roof and living wall systems are based on epiphytic life forms
that require no soil. Our first product is a flexible fire-resistant mat with a pre-cultivated
ecosystem of mosses, lichen, ferns, and selaginella. The mats can be adhered to a roof or wall
surface. As in nature, the living surface can absorb 12 times it's weight in
water. During drought periods, the living surface survives by going into a period of dormancy.
Irrigation is not recommended. The vegetation is adapted to the climate and light conditions
of the installation.
The vegetated mats are pre-cultivated with full coverage of moss and epiphytes. Installation
is simple. The mats are adhered directly to a membrane surface. The surface can be horizontal
or vertical or any angle in between. The system is complete. No soil or drainage layers are required.
Simple. Light. Basically maintenance-free. The vegetated mats are 2 ft by 4 ft with a fire-resistant
layer. They can be adhered to waterproof membrane surfaces such as TPO, Polypropylene, HDPE, or EPDM.
