ZinCo Green Roofing Systems Now with European Technical Assessment

In 2013 ZinCo received European Technical Approval ETA with the number 13/0668 for a wide range of proven green roof systems. Since June 2018, the European Technical Approval has been replaced by the European Technical Assessment.

On the one hand, this is a prerequisite for unrestricted access to the European market and its contracting states and, on the other hand, it reassures architects, contractors and owners that the relevant systems and products have passed the mandatory proof procedures and are in accordance with the assessment requirements.

The following system build-up versions have European Technical Assessment:

  Extensive green roof "Sedum Carpet" Extensive green roof "Rockery Type Plants" Simple intensive green roof "Heather with Lavender" Intensive green roof "Roof Garden"
