Possible uses are retail, leisure, health, education and office developments, new build and refurbishment projects. This modern, precision engineered system provides great design flexibility. Working closely with designers, a solution can be developed to meet virtually any location and performance requirements, or budget constraints.
Equally suitable for internal or external use, the systems fix into timber, concrete, steel or brick structures and can be tailored to suit the characteristics of different plants.
Green Wall Applications
Green Wall technology may be used for a wide variety of projects - both new build and refurbishment for a variety of building types. From small garden projects to large industrial and commercial developments, the benefits of Green Wall systems are being realised across the public and private sectors.
With carbon reduction targets a key focus for many public sector organisations (particularly schools and hospitals), Green Walls can play a contributory role, significantly helping to reduce a building’s carbon footprint.
In schools the systems can also deliver educational benefits, encouraging pupils to engage with the problems of carbon reduction and climate change and with broader ecological and environmental issues. Specific systems can be designed to suit a range of plant types, and as a habitat for different wildlife.
Green Wall systems require very few small fixings and therefore the impact on, or potential for damage to a building’s façade is minimal. Similarly, the system is set away from the wall so, with the correct plant choice, plants will not damage the façade and systems may be used with confidence on existing buildings, even those that may be listed.
Recent developments in vertical farming techniques also demonstrate the potential and versatility of Green Wall systems. Using large urban structures to grow crops on their facades, buildings would become ‘farmscapes’ - effectively with green walls providing a sub-structure to support the growth of crops such as fruit and vegetables.
