Invented for Fighter Jets

Discover Aqualok


An Ultra-Lightweight Modular Green Roof

Aqualok’s non-toxic polyethylene foam mimics traditional soil composition, but it’s much lighter and more space-efficient. Its three-inch thick foam structure is the equivalent of three feet of traditional soil, making it possible to include green roofs on more buildings.

Military Heritage

Aqualok was invented for the fuel intake of the F16, one of the most dynamic fighter jets in history. It’s no coincidence that it is set to transform the way architects, engineers, and developers use green roofs.

Maximum Flexibility

Don’t be fooled by its compact form and light weight. Aqualok gives developers and architects the choice to plant a wide variety of species for the ultimate in aesthetic and environmental flexibility.

The Basics

Weight (Dry) Less than 1 pound / sf
Weight (Saturated): Approx. 15 pounds / sf
Aqualok Panels: ~ 3.5” deep trays
Growing Medium: 3.0” of Aqualok foam material
Wind Standard: Up to 110 mph
ASTM E-2398 3” of water captured
Maryland ESD Approved for Green Roof & Water Harvesting Practices

Performance Improves with Age

American University study shows Aqualok’s performance increases over time.

American University helmed a study to research Aqualok’s capabilities as a planted and unplanted apparatus to reduce nitrites as well as total suspended solids discharged.

Astonishingly, Aqualok’s performance continually improved rather than simply running at a constant. After six months, the planted Aqualok panel had 60% less nitrate and 80% less suspended solids in water filtering through it than was observed in the untreated runoff.

Saves Energy at DC Fire Station

2-Year Study Showcases Energy Saving Potential of Aqualok System.

Aqualok, in conjunction with the Washington D.C. Fire & Emergency Medical Services, conducted a two-year study to determine the energy saving capabilities of the Aqualok system.

Utilizing two of the District’s fire stations Aqualok established a baseline of energy consumption during year one then installed the system on one of the roofs to determine the potential reduction in power consumption. Aqualok exceeded expectations offering up to a staggering 31.84% reduction in energy consumption during the spring.
