Sustainability in Roofing
Raw Materials and Manufacturing
Climate protection roofing solutions: Sika provides roofing systems with a low Global Warming Potential (GWP). This means a reduced Carbon Footprint.
Long lasting roofing systems
Durability: Investing into highly durable roofing systems that have stood the test of time – saving energy and resources as well as cost over the life time of a building.
Use and maintenance
Saving energy: Sika roofing systems can save energy by incorporating high performance thermal insulation. Sika solar reflective membranes help save energy by increasing the albedo and as a consequence reducing the cooling energy demands and contributes to the reduction of the urban heat island effect.
Sika Solar Reflective Membranes
Generating energy: Sika SolaRoof™ systems allow you to produce energy right on top of your roof, whilst Sika solar reflective membranes also improve photovoltaic panel efficiency.
Sika Green Roofing Systems
Improving the microclimate: Sika green roofing systems help to improve the microclimate and to mitigate the development of urban heat islands and help mange water run-off from roofs.
Thermal Insulation: Saving Energy
Sika provides a wide range of thermal insulation specially designed and manufactured for optimal performance as part of the Sika roofing systems.
Sika SolaRoof: Generating Energy
The importance of rooftop solar applications was recognized early by Sika, because its Solar Reflective (SR) membranes can increase the performance of Photovoltaic (PV) panels.
Sika Green Roofs: A Natural Habitat on Your Roof
Green Roofs are one of the most exciting developments in sustainable building design. Also called vegetated roofs, eco roofs, or living roofs, green roofs offer a number of sustainable benefits.
Solar Reflective Roofs: Saving Energy
White highly reflective membranes dramatically increase reflectivity and reduce both the heat island effect and the cooling energy consumption requirements for buildings.
Recycling – Closing the Material Cycle
Sika has been recycling production waste and roll edge trimmings since the 1960’s. The company was a pioneer in the development of recycling for used roofing membranes.
