Latest News: Wallbarn M-Trays featured in magazine

Wallbarn M-Trays featured in magazine

The benefits of Wallbarn’s M-Tray® system for green roofs have featured in the latest copy of an online magazine.

Portable M-Trays

Construction Materials Online (CMO) published a special Spring edition about extensions and the materials used to build them. It included a feature about installing sustainable green roofs on extensions and how they can improve air quality and insulation. The M-Tray® system from Wallbarn was praised for overcoming the drawbacks of the old roll-out ‘blankets’, which included being messy to transport and prone to die off if not installed and cared for correctly.

The M-Tray® overcomes this by using fully-established sedum, nursery grown for at least six months, in highly-portable, clip-together trays. The modules contain flowering species rooted into Wallbarn’s own substrate, meaning they can be installed without specialist knowledge and with less risk of damage to the waterproofing membrane. The trays can be carried by one person through properties where access is difficult and can be simply lifted out if the roof ever needs to be inspected.

To find out more about creating an instant green roof with Wallbarn M-Tray® system, visit the website or e-mail the team.
