The environmental impact of a green roof is undeniable, and adds significantly to the LEED Point system designed by the USGC in all five major areas: sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials selection, and indoor environmental quality. Green roofing replaces the green space displaced by a building, prevents excess stormwater drainage, reduces the temperature of a building and the urban heat island effect, protects and extends the useful life of a roof, and reduce energy demands. What's more, a green roof incorporating AirDrain means your design includes renewable, recycled, and locally obtained materials. Airfield Systems knows you have a choice in designing a green roof, and hopes you consider the many benefits of AirDrain.

PolyPavement is LEED compliant and can contribute to attaining LEED Credits in many categories for pavement . Because PolyPavement incorporates natural, indigenous soil, and has a much higher SRI (Solar Reflective Index) than black asphalt, and can be up to 100% recycled, it is favored by many green builders and architects. In addition to being aesthetically pleasing, PolyPavement is non-toxic to plants and animals and it contains no known carcinogenic ingredients such as vinyl acetate or acetaldehyde. It has been tested and proven safe for sensitive aquatic life and does not leach into the ground water. PolyPavement may be applied in environmentally sensitive areas without worry or concern.
