The Elmich MEP® Tray (Modular Extensive Planting) system allows quick realisation of extensive green roofs. It is a lightweight and robust planting tray with water storage compartments made from high-strength UV-stabilised polypropylene.
The system includes a support plate with anti-root overflow outlet covers, capillary wicks, geotextile filter, erosion guard, joining and fastening pegs, rodent barriers, base connector and drainage pipes. The water reservoir in each MEP® Tray supports long term plant sustainability with minimal maintenance. The modular tray design allows sustained plant growth and its light weight facilitates easy creation of desired designs and patterns. Each MEP® Tray including accessories, saturated planting media, plants and stored water weighs less than 30 kg.
The self-contained MEP® Tray may be pre-planted in a nursery prior to installation to achieve instant greening of rooftops. MEP® Tray components are manufactured primarily from re-cycled plastics, supporting all international Green Building certifications.
