Product Profile: American Hydrotech
American Hydrotech's Monolithic Membrane 6125, the original rubberized asphalt membrane, has been entrusted for over 50 years with keeping high-profile structures across the country and around the globe watertight. Today, Hydrotech calls on a large roster of waterproofing and roofing products for a wide variety of roofing and waterproofing solutions—drainage, insulation, an open joint architectural paver assembly, and the Garden Roof Assembly, which supplies the user with everything needed to create a sustainable vegetated roof.
Now architects, landscape architects, engineers, and other design community members can download a free, interactive version of the Garden Roof Planning Guide in the iOS App Store. The app condenses 18 years of Hydrotech’s vegetative roof experience into one tool. Users can use the app to explore the planning and installation process on their own terms. It empowers the user to approach the material in a personal, dynamic way, rather than being restricted to a static resource.
The Garden Roof Planning Guide iPad app covers everything from technology and materials, proper planning and design, to installation and maintenance. Users can examine the vegetated roof concept from economic incentives to stormwater management, with an in-depth look at the modern world’s environmental challenges and the role of sustainable design in providing green solutions.
The app features pinch-to-zoom product photography, video animations, photo galleries of Garden Roof Assemblies in real-world applications, and design considerations.
