Moundable. Lightweight. Free Draining. Low Embodied Carbon.
As a green roof fill, foam glass gravel is a lightweight option that allows landscape architects to unleash their creativity. Foam glass gravel is a drainage layer that can also be compacted at angles of up to 45°. Weighing only 9.8 pounds per cubic foot, weight stress is minimized on building structures. The closed cell structure ensures that moisture is never absorbed, preventing additional structural strain over time.
On a green roof job site, Glavel’s foam glass gravel is easy to transport onto a roof system, and simple to install.
