Green Walls Systems

 

     

 

 

 

 

Green walls are found most often in urban environments where the plants reduce overall temperatures of the building this provides, increased sound insulation and reduced energy usage. As well improving the overal look of the building

The primary cause of heat build-up in cities is insulation, the absorption of solar radiation by roads and buildings in the city and the storage of this heat in the building material and its subsequent re-radiation. Plant surfaces however, as a result of transpiration, do not rise more than 4–5 °C above the ambient and are sometimes cooler.

Living walls may also be a means for water reuse. The plants may purify slightly polluted water (such as greywater) by absorbing the dissolved nutrients. Bacteria mineralize the organic components to make them available to the plants.

Green living walls are particularly suitable for cities, as they allow good use of available vertical surface areas. They are also suitable in arid areas, as the circulating water on a vertical wall is less likely to evaporate than in horizontal gardens.

The living wall could also function for urban agriculture or urban gardening. It may be built as a work of architecture, or to create an aesthetically pleasing view, i.e. hide an industrial or service building, roadway or railway line.

Tiga TG Green Screen / Noise Barriers System (External use only)

Welded mesh trellis system designed to carry climbing plants and create a wall of vegetation. Facade required background waterproofing on buildings with closed surface envelope. This system is relatively lightweight and can accommodate hedera, hornbeam and beech plants.

The recommended irrigation systems for these type of installations are crucial to the longevity of the green system. Fully automated dosing units with web-based interface to fully control all moisture & nutrient aspects of thewall. These systems also create alarm messages via email or text should any aspect of the system fail.

Flexipanel System (Internal/External uses)

This lightweight modular system on flexipanels incorporating mineral wool substrate plates, can be used to green curves, create internal and external corners.

      

A huge number of varieties of perennial species are available with this system, for both internal or extenal. The recommended irrigation system - leaky pipe auto-feed & web based communications units are recommended to manage these natural barriers & green walls.

      

In most applications green walls require a layer of background waterproofing when applied to a structural surface.
