ASTM International

Over 12,000 ASTM standards operate globally. They improve the lives of millions every day. These standards enhance performance and help everyone have confidence in the things they buy and use – from the toy in a child’s hand, to the aircraft overhead, to your green roof.

Nathan Griswold, Inhabitect’s President, has played a role in ASTM’s green roof committee for over 10 years. He has worked with other members to create consensus and improve performance in manufacturing and materials, products and processes, systems and services to help ensure the continued success of the green roof market place.

ASTM’s roofing and green roofing standards are instrumental in specifying, testing, and evaluating the dimensional, mechanical, and performance requirements of various forms of roofing systems. These roofing standards are helpful in guiding product manufacturers, construction companies, architectural firms, and other producers and end-users of these parts and components in their proper fabrication and installation, as well as the possible hazards involved during these procedures.
