We have developed this system to overcome the problems we have encountered over the years dealing with the longevity of greenwall systems and the problems that occur when using organic (soil) medium based systems.
This system is suitable for both small residential applications but is also designed for effective solutions for commercial use in both interior and high rise Greenwalls that require rope access.
Feedback from clients, collaboration and consultation for engineers and developers has taken us to where we are now with this system that addresses the problems often associated with many older style greenwall hardware that suffer from soil shrinkage, become hydrophobic, put too much load on the wall, have too much profile depth from the wall, create toe holds for climbing or use enormous amounts of water.
The benefits of this hardware allow the plants roots to grow freely throughout the facade without the restrictions of pots or planters,
We have also eliminated the problems often associated with water dripping and migrating off the face of the system by watering from within the layers, the Hydrophilic properties of our capillary materials ensure the water stays where you want it and the structure will not collapse on itself like organic mediums will often within a 18 month – 2 year period
The multiple layers of the materials offer the plant roots the perfect environment to thrive.
We have also addressed and eliminated the possibility for excess evaporation and drying out by including layers that keep the moisture within the structure thus reducing water usage also.
