Pitched against some of the highest-quality roofing products, M-Tray® modular green roof system beat off all competition to secure the coveted title of Best Roofing System or Product in the 2020 Build It awards.
The M-Tray® has also won the award for ‘Best Green Innovation’ at the 2021 Green Home Awards.
What makes the M-Tray® green roof unique?
Mature, established vegetation.
Click-together trays create seamless connection.
Easy to transport and install.
Specially-mixed substrate for longevity of plant life.
100mm deep cavities for healthy roots.
Optimum drainage means stronger plants.
No sharp edges or mess meaning minimum disruption to plants, deck structure and inhabitants.
Instant green roofs
M-Trays® are designed to click together forming a single verdant surface Once trays are connected they start to blend straight away, forming a seamless layer of vegetation.
Modular M-Trays® can be easily lifted out giving access to the deck without disruption to the rest of the roof
Hard-to-access areas such as single storey extensions, working
hotels and other commercial spaces can make installing roll-out very
challenging. M-Trays® can be handballed into even the most awkward areas discreetly and with minimum mess.
Each M-Tray® module is 500 x 500mm and can be carried by one
operative and therefore installed much faster than traditional roll-out. Our modules are conveniently packaged, palletised and delivered to site
Biodiversity is becoming more popular for urban greening schemes as it
has been proven that a large mix of native English flowering species is
the best way to attract and promote wildlife such as bees, butterflies,
other insects and birds into these roof spaces.
By replicating what is happening out in the fields on urban roofs we can
help to replace what has been lost and improve the environment.
Unique Design Tray Design
Module measures 500 x 500 x 100mm 4 x units make up exactly 1sq metre making estimating far easier Carefully spaced drainage holes ensure modules retain
water for longer, allowing plants to absorb more rainfall, increasing
attenuation and delaying discharge into outlets Design ensures even greater water retention at edges of module, preventing sedum from dying back at the edges. Stronger plant growth at the edges creates a more seamless layer of vegetation when the modules are connected Four gently ridged hand grips are positioned to enable installers to carry each module easier
Smooth edges & connecting bracket
The connecting brackets are designed to give a tight connection, with the minimum gap between each module The joint is only 6mm so the plants will grow over it quickly, making it disappear in ultra-quick time The corners of the modules are rounded
and smooth, so no sharp edges (which might puncture the membrane
beneath) are present – this also makes handling the trays easier and the
edges can be mounted onto Wallbarn pedestals if additional height is
Trims & Edging
100mm aluminium edge trims and connectors
fit neatly onto the sides of the modules. Fixings are designed to slot
together neatly although they are not always necessary.
