The Hydroactive Smart Roof System : HYDROVENTIV

Modular trays device for retaining and dissipating rain water on a roof, with outflow control delayed, piloted by a remote system control for optimizing the water resource
Actual system proven in operational environment (competitive manufacturing).
The solution is used successfully in a structurally operational environment. The user can and wants to recommend the solution to others.
The basic system has just been validated on experimental sites in France after 1 year of real-time measurements (hydric characterisation) and analysis program. Some real projects has been installed and are still monitored in view of the integrated control system. Further extensions are being investigated.

How does it work?

Overlaid plastic trays assembled on the roof capture and store rain water, regulate the outflow slowly to the sewer system and dissipate water by evapotranspiration of plants through capillarity wicks, sucked from the reservoir tray.
