SkyScape Built-In-Place (BIP) Systems provide limitless possibilities, whether the design is functional, a “designed” space or a dramatic rooftop garden; SkyScape Built-In-Place Systems can support your design. These systems allow for monolithic coverage over the entire roof for both low-slope and sloped applications. Your only limitation is your imagination.
SkyScape Extensive Systems
(less than 6” media depth)
The Extensive Systems are suited for roofs with limited load bearing capacity and is typically installed on non-visible roof surfaces. The SkyScape 0.5” or 1.0” drainage panels are recommend to support this design style.
SkyScape Semi-Intensive Systems
(6” – 8″ media depth)
The Semi-Intensive Systems are typically installed on visible roof surfaces aiding in softening the building's appearance with enhanced aesthetics. The SkyScape 1.0” drainage panel is recommended to support this design.
SkyScape Intensive Systems
(8” and greater media depth)
The Intensive Systems are typically installed on roofs with substantial loading capacity to accommodate a rooftop garden. The SkyScape 1.0” drainage panel or the SkyScape 1.25” drainage grids (with added void space and filtration layers) are recommended to support this design style.
- Locations where municipal stormwater retention codes or incentives drive the market
- Projects where the roofer is the vegetative roof installer
- Markets where Built-In-Place Systems are more popular than tray systems
